I'm not sure how I missed the existence of this movie before now, but now that I know, I'm shouting it from the rooftops.
I love Luc Besson. I really dig Scarlett Johansson, I adore Morgan Freeman, I love sci fi and I frickin' adore badass women who kick ass -- so this has me written alllllll over it.
Head after the break for the trailer and more info ;-)
Cast: Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman
Written and Directed by: Luc Besson

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
Lucy also stars Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman and is produced by Virginie Besson-Silla for EuropaCorp. Universal Pictures will distribute the movie worldwide, except for France, Benelux and China.
