Scarlett Johansson made a splash and turned heads as Black Widow in Marvel's "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 2". Now the bombshell is in final talks to try her hand again at action, in a new film from director Luc Besson titled "Lucy".

The story revolves around a woman who is forced to become a drug mule, who then becomes a lethal fighting machine with powers when the drug enters her system. She then finds herself able to retain knowledge at lightning speed, she doesn't' feel any pain and she can move things with her mind.

Besson is of course great at the action thriller genre, having already helmed such classics as "The Fifth Element" and "The Professional". He has recently produced other high-voltage films such as "Taken", "Colombiana" and "Lockout".

I wasn't always the biggest fan of Johansson, other than the fact that she's absolutely stunning. But her as Black Widow definitely turned me around, as she brought a great level of skill to that role, showcasing both strength as well as vulnerability when it was needed. I look forward to seeing what Besson and Johansson can create together.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.

    Magic and "The Social Network" shouldn't be in the same sentence. It was an awful movie for what has become "The Hateful Network". It's the beginning of the end for FB.
