After the mid-point performance of “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” at the box office, Luc Besson will return to direct a sequel to “Lucy”, an action film starring Scarlett Johansson.
Marc Shmuger, CEO of producer EuropaCorp, confirmed in an interview with Variety that Besson has already completed the script for the sequel.
It’s worth remembering that upon the release of the first film, director Besson revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that he didn’t think he was going to be part 2.
“I don’t see us doing a sequel, if I find an idea good enough, maybe I’ll do it, but right now I don’t even think about it. [um segundo filme]», He revealed.
The sci-fi raised $ 458 million worldwide and became the biggest hit in the production company’s history – which is why the director changed his mind …
The film follows Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a young woman recruited to carry drugs in the stomach by gangsters from the East. Once the body has absorbed the substance, Lucy begins to use 100% of her brain’s capacity, transforming into a “superwoman”. The film also features Morgan Freeman playing a scientist who helps Lucy with her transformation.
