Back in April, Scarlett Johansson signed up to kick some ass for director Luc Besson in Lucy. Now she has some company as TheWrap reports that Morgan Freeman is in talks to join her.
Besson also wrote the script for Lucy, which is about a woman who is forced to become a drug mule. However, things go wrong when the drugs start to leak into her body, transforming her into an ass-kicking machine. Miraculously she can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts.
So it’s like a superhero movie meets Crank (which was also produced by Besson).
Freeman will be back in wise old man mode asy a professor who has studied evolution and the chemistry of the brain, which Lucy thinks could help her. There’s no news on when the film might shoot.
