Scarlett Johansson has found her niche in action movies! Following her super-hero role as the Black Widow in ‘The Avengers,’ Scarlett will next star in Luc Besson’s upcoming sci-fi thriller, ‘Lucy.’
The first trailer for the film features Johansson playing a woman who lives in a futuristic Taipei, Taiwan, and is working as a mule for the mob. She inadvertently ingests a drug that she was carrying in her stomach — and it gives her special abilities. Some of these special side-effects include: eyes that change color, the ability to write Chinese, superhuman strength and unlimited intelligence. Basically, it looks like the drug is allowing her to use more of her brain power than any other human.
Also starring Morgan Freeman, Lucy looks like a tension-filled, wild ride with Johansson running the show.
Universal will release the film on Aug. 8.
I love Luc Besson…. I’m guessing this will be great!
