Lucy is set in a world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts, and corrupt cops. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob.
The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, changing her into a superhuman, due to accessing much more than the normal 10% of her brain capacity. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and cannot feel pain or other discomforts.
The film directed, written, edited, and produced by Luc Besson and Europacorp. It will be released on 25 July 2014. The movie was shot in Taipei, Paris and New York City. It stars Scarlett Johansson as the title character, along with Morgan Freeman.
