Scarlett Johansson Sci-Fi Flick <i>Lucy</i> to Have Largest Budget for Studio to Date

The Luc Besson-helmed film, about a drug mule who develops super powers and a short temper when her cargo absorbs into her bloodstream, will have the highest budget for film studio EuropaCorp to date.

Director Luc Besson's newest endeavor will be the most expensive film ever for studio Europacorp. Besson, who brought us action masterpieces Taken and Leon will be developing Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers), which follows a drug mule who develops telekinesis, premonition, and a lack of regard for pain tolerance when the substance she carries begins to absorb into her bloodstream.

Christophe Lambert, CEO for Europacorp, stated that Lucy would have "the highest budget in the history of EuropaCorp… Luc Besson has never put so many special effects in a movie". No figures for the film have been released.

Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises) will also be joining Johansson as a neurology professor who assists Johansson's character throughout the film. Leave your thoughts in the usual place!
