People were surprised that I wanted to play a comic book heroine. But I loved Iron Man, and I met with Marvel to see what was possible. I had done my research, and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life. In the sequel, you learn more about the sadness in her past.
Johansson plays Lucy, a drug mule, in this science fiction thriller written and directed by Luc Besson. Lucy is accidentally injected with a drug that causes her to access more and more of her brain, turning her into something more than human. Co-starring Morgan Freeman.
There’s so much going on inside of her. She’s having all these profound changes and realizations and these sudden “ah-ha” moments. But you still want to watch the person and see that there’s an inner life happening there.
In this sci-fi drama directed by Luc Besson, Johansson plays Lucy, a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal, who turns tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. Co-starring Morgan Freeman,Analeigh Tipton, Choi Min-Sik and Amr Waked. Besson:
I’ve always worked with sci-fi since my first film. So it’s never very far. But I like going from Fifth Element to Joan of Arc and going from The Family to Lucy. So I like that. But what attracts me also very much as a director is the cast. To have Scarlett, who I really like — I’ve seen her on Broadway in her play. I’ve been there twice. I love Morgan Freeman. Choi Min-sik is a genius. Amr Waked is a great Egyptian actor. For a director to have this mix of characters coming from everywhere around the world, it’s so exciting, so exciting
