Scarlett Johansson is in final negotiations to star in French director Luc Besson's new action movie, Lucy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the star of Marvel's The Avengers and the upcoming sequel to Captain America would play a "woman who is forced to become a drug mule, who then becomes a lethal fighting machine with powers when the drug enters her system. She then finds herself able to retain knowledge at lightning speed, she doesn't' feel any pain and she can move things with her mind." Sounds like a superhero to me! Besson also wrote the script and will produce with his EuropaCorp CEO Christophe Lambert. Johansson is set to shoot Lucy as soon as she's wrapped on Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
