Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers) and Morgan Freeman (Oblivion) are set to star in the upcoming superheroine movie, Lucy, to be directed by Luc Besson (Taken, The Fifth Element) and if you’ve seen him pull some fun special effects, you haven’t seen anything yet.

According to Bleeding Cool, Scarlett Johansson (Lucy) is a drug mule who gains super powers from the drugs she carries and Morgan Freeman plays the neuro-scientist who is her only hope for survival. Not only does it sound like a fun movie, but they quote a French article as saying this will be the biggest budget on record for EuropaCorp. Awesome.

We’ll keep you posted on the latest for Lucy directed by Luc Besson and starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman due out some time next year.
