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.

If youve ever known someone with huge boobs then you know that comes with alot of problems. It puts a strain on the neck, back, and shoulders and it also makes it difficult to bend over and do other tasks.

@Blackandyellow

SHE HAD A BREAST REDUCTION!!!!! Imagine how her breast would look if she would of never had that!

THIS gets made and a Black Widow/Shield movie doesnt??

Besson's movies are meant to be exactly one type of movie. Fortunately it's a type of movie I like. The Transporter series, From Paris with Love, Lockdown, Taken (and Taken 2) are all the type of movies I would necessarily call Oscar winners, but a good time nonetheless. I figured it would only be a matter of time before he got involved in the superhero genre.

@Scorpion

Are you crazy!? ScarJo is an excellent actress, go watch Lost in Translation, We bought a zoo, Hitchcock,and In Good Company!

Limitless with a female lead and mind control?
beane2099 - 4/26/2013, 11:45 AM

Or. you can wait till the esteemed Teabag or IM53 posts some pics on this talkbalk... Ahem ... I said you could wait till Teabag or IM53 posts one of those pics on this talk back.
beane2099 - 4/26/2013, 11:45 AM
No? Well soon.
MarkV - 4/26/2013, 11:46 AM
I think she had a "breast projection." There was a spelling error.
Shamo - 4/26/2013, 11:46 AM
Besson hasn't done anything good in years. will watch for Scarjo though, plot sounds dope too.

Luv beeson.
He could direct a batman which is fully skilled detective,just like in TAKEN.
LucasMend - 4/26/2013, 11:50 AM
Here, some Scarlett from her old and amazing days:
MrCBM56 - 4/26/2013, 11:56 AM
This is how ScarJo would look like as Black Widow without the Breast Reduction

SigmaCenturion - 4/26/2013, 12:01 PM
Sounds like a captivating movie plot. Not really.
WhiteBolt - 4/26/2013, 12:02 PM
I'd still marry ScarJo even with her reduction.

I see Futurepast is back as @Gothamsknight.
SigmaCenturion - 4/26/2013, 12:02 PM
@GothamKnight Quit Spoiling.
MrCBM56 - 4/26/2013, 12:08 PM
@Gusto

OMG, lol those tits coming at you in 3-D! I wouldn't be able to control myself!
TheIconicMan - 4/26/2013, 12:11 PM
@Gusto I agree with you. And breast reduction is from the devil..

@MrCBM56 I'm ok with that.

jlabatman - 4/26/2013, 12:11 PM
Tactical advantage if you ask me!
eleven59 - 4/26/2013, 12:25 PM
@mrCBM56 lmao nice



"and it also makes it difficult to bend over and do other tasks."

no comment....
davidwiz - 4/26/2013, 12:44 PM
oh god, i hope this will do well. i dont like male superheroes and i dont know why people who buy comic books who are mostly male do.
SpoonWielder - 4/26/2013, 12:57 PM
So wait she gets super powers from shoving drugs up her butt?
Gmoney84 - 4/26/2013, 1:11 PM
If something ever happens to Scarjo they should get Katherine Winnick from Vikings to play Black Widow. She kinda favors Scarjo but is hotter IMO.
sanyaya - 4/26/2013, 2:34 PM
please have sex scenes in it or we riot
CaptainProg - 4/26/2013, 2:35 PM
Accidental superhero? Meh! Bring the big boobs back scarjo!!
ParisSun - 4/26/2013, 2:57 PM
@Scorpion:
Scarlett has been acting since the age of nine. So maybe you were enjoying her smoking hot 9 year old body, but some people actually like her acting in certain roles.
SeaSerpentine - 4/26/2013, 2:58 PM
I don't care if she had them reduced, I still think she's hot. Besides, she still has a nice ass.
Bandrews1 - 4/26/2013, 3:05 PM
Sounds intriguing!!
exe - 4/26/2013, 3:15 PM
Scarlett Johansson is overrated. Just an average actress.
kemuael - 4/26/2013, 3:28 PM
Ill watch it :-)
UrbanKnight - 4/26/2013, 3:42 PM
She did didn't she!?? I knew it. SMH. Back problems, yeah right! They weren't THAT big!!
Bullshit.

She just wants to be treated more serious as an actress or sumthin. Boo. Im so selfish. :P

looks like besson's 2nd attempt to do a super hot chick doing tricks for him. remember his ex-wife, Milla Jovovich, as Leeloo (5th Element) as the mystery girl with super powers.

who knows the currently single ScarJo might just end up as the future MRS. Besson.
TheSoulEater - 4/26/2013, 4:40 PM
Will she resemble Ms. Floss in the spirit?
mgeoff88 - 4/26/2013, 6:49 PM
Luc Besson directing a superhero movie? That could be awesome!

It's funny the people complaining about Scarlett getting a breast reduction when they know very well if they had a chance, they would still motorboat those bad girls.

I mean, I liked her body the way it was before too, but if she had back problems, her doing that's understandable.

And she still has a beautiful body IMO.

AUSSYACE - 4/26/2013, 7:58 PM
Just go away Scarjo you fat arse ugly bitch...
IIIAdamantiumIII - 4/26/2013, 8:50 PM
only care if she is naked
RSDhillon - 4/26/2013, 11:23 PM
Most of you guys are disrespectful. I mean, I know this is the internet but c'mon.

The movie sounds interesting. She seems to be a superheroine, so that's cool. I'm not familiar with Besson's movies.
sameoldthing - 4/27/2013, 3:42 AM
This movie may have her character carry the drugs in her twat but it would be better if it was in her ass when the drugs inter her system.
Since she's a drug "mule" she can alter that name a bit for her superpower codename:
THE ASS! (her booty is pretty good.)
