Scarlett Johansson has already enjoyed a heroic turn as the super-spy Black Widow, and now The Fifth Elementwriter and director Luc Besson wants her front and center in his own superpowered action movie, Lucy.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Johansson is in final negotiations to star in the Besson-helmedLucy. Here's the pitch, according to THR:
Besson wrote the script for Lucy, which centers on a woman forced to become a drug mule. But the drug instead goes into her system, transforming her into an ass-kicking machine. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain and other discomforts.
