Scarlett Johansson fans take note, the actress will continue to kick ass. After establishing herself as an action hero in Iron Man 2The Avengers and the currently shooting Captain America: The Winter Soldier, she will go on the run in Luc Besson’s Lucy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Written and directed by Besson (The Fifth Element), the Universal Pictures release finds Johansson playing a drug mule whose cargo winds up getting into her system, essentially granting her superpowers. “She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts,” THR explains.

The film marks a return to form for Besson, who wrote and directed strong female leads in La Femme NikitaAngel-AThe Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc and The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec. Besson’s next release will be Malavita, a mob thriller starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tommy Lee Jones.
