“Lucy 2” Script Done, But Not Besson’s Next

EuropaCorp CEO Marc Shmuger has confirmed that filmmaker Luc Besson has completed the script for the sequel to the 2014 sci-fi action thriller “Lucy” starring Scarlett Johansson.

Johansson starred in the original as a student abducted by thugs who turn her into a drug mule for a package with a powerful chemical, but it leaks into her system and gives her superhuman abilities.

Morgan Freeman, Min-sik Choi, Amr Waked, Pilou Asbaek and Analeigh Tipton co-starred in the film which pulled in an impressive $463.3 million worldwide from a $40 million budget.

Besson, coming off the failure of the “Valerian” film which made $235 million worldwide from a $209 million budget, is eyeing another female-driven project to direct before he tackles “Lucy 2”.
