Lucy, “Colombiana” Sequels In Development

Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp company is participating in CineEurope this week where they announced their list of upcoming movies.

The big surprise is that sequels to last year’s Scarlett Johansson sci-fi thriller “Lucy,” and the Zoe Saldana action thriller “Colombiana” are both in development.

A year ago Besson himself was asked “Lucy” sequel prospects to which he replied “I don’t see how we can do [a sequel]. It”s not made for that.” Looks like someone found a way.

Also on the way are “Shut In” with Naomi Watts, “Nine Lives” with Kevin Spacey, “The Lake” with Sullivan Stapleton, and “Escobar” with Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz which are all due next year. The Dave Bautista-led “Warrior’s Gate” and Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne-starring “Valerian” are also due in 2017.
