Scarlett Johansson is in final negotiations to star in Luc Besson's latest directorial effort - the action-thriller "Lucy" at Universal Pictures and EuropaCorp.
Besson ("La Femme Nikita," "The Fifth Element") wrote the script which centers on a woman forced to become a drug mule. When the drug goes into her system, she is transformed into an ass-kicking machine.
She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain. Besson and Christophe Lambert will produce.
