Luc Besson action pic “Lucy” release date moved

PanARMENIAN.Net - Universal has moved up the action pic “Lucy” starring Scarlett Johansson two weeks earlier to July 25. Luc Besson penned and directed the pic, Variety said.

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 and other discomforts.

The film was originally slated for Aug. 8 , just a week after Marvel opens “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which has started to build positive buzz in recent weeks.

‘Guardians’ bows on Aug. 1 and Universal clearly would like to get out in front of that film.

Morgan Freeman also stars with Virginie Besson-Silla, with EuropaCorp producing.
