Luc Besson's Next Action Flick LUCY Starring Scarlett Johansson Begins Shooting
Luc Besson's (Nikita, Leon The Professional) next film has begun production (via ThePlaylist) and will be a crazy sounding sci-fi action flick titled Lucy which stars Scarlett Johansson. Lucy (Johansson), a drug mule has the goods (super soldier formula?) get into her system making her a badass super assassin (think Bradley Cooper's character in Limitless meets Matt Damon's Jason Bourne). The film co-stars Morgan Freeman and Old Boy's Choi Min-sik. It's also a perfect role for Scarlett Johansson post-Winter Soldier and pre-Age of Ultron to keep the actress in fighting shape.
