Scarlett Johansson

Plenty of audiences have already seen Scarlett Johansson kick ass as Black Widow in The Avengers and Iron Man 2, and she'll have a key role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier next year. Now THR says she'll be getting into action with The Fifth Element and The Professional director Luc Besson for his latest action thriller Lucy. The actress is in final talks to lead the film about a woman who is forced to become a drug mule. But rather than just carrying the drug, it enters her system and turns her into a lethal vixen who can absorb knowledge with ease, move things with her mind and doesn't feel any pain at all. More below!

Sounds like the perfect return to form for Besson who crafted some great action thrillers back in the 90s, but has stayed fairly low key behind the camera, mostly producing and writing over the last decade. Besson has produced action hits like The Transporter and Taken and duds like Colombiana and Lockout but he does have his most recent directorial effort, Malavita, starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones hitting theaters later this year, so keep an eye out for a trailer. With Johansson as his leading lady, I can't wait to see Besson back behind the camera in this genre again.

Not possible. Every shot of her is practically a cleavage shot.

Better do it soon, because that girl is getting frumpy. Agent Maria Hill outclassed her in Avengers! She should have been Black Widow.
