Scarlett Johansson fans take note, the actress will continue to kick ass. After establishing herself as an action hero in Iron Man 2, The 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 Nikita, Angel-A, The 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.

Scarlett Johansson rocks a sheer floral dress on the cover of Marie Claire‘s May 2013 issue, on newsstands April 16.
Here is what the 28-year-old Don Jon actress had to share with the mag:
On her divorce from Ryan Reynolds in 2010: “Well, it wasn’t that long ago. But I think I’ve had a fair amount of time to process the experience and be able to move forward. I continue to get to know myself better as I get older, and that helps me in my relationships.”
On how she spends her downtime: “I’ve been obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race. I love the makeup, I love the hair, I love the looks. That’s been my escape.”
On social media: “All of it drives me crazy. I don’t understand this need to ‘share.’ We almost exploit ourselves in order to feel seen.”
On something a man can’t do around her: “I don’t like jealous behavior. I don’t mind an occasional check-in, but when somebody is passive-aggressively jealous, it’s really unattractive because it shows a sort of insecurity that is…Oh, controlling behavior is awful. Nobody’s going to say they love that.”

The Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’ 1955 family drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, starring Tony Award winner Scarlett Johansson and Benjamin Walker as a couple grappling with ghosts of the past and an uncertain future, ends its run March 30 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Tony Award winner Rob Ashford (Evita, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Finding Neverland) helmed the production, set within a sweltering upstairs bedroom of a sweeping Mississipi plantation, which began previews Dec. 18, 2012, and officially opened Jan. 17.
It ends its 15-week engagement, as scheduled, having played 34 previews and 84 regular performances. Representatives for the production did not respond to questions regarding whether the production had recouped its investment. Critics offered a mixed response to the revival.
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played to 61.7 percent capacity for the week ending March 24, grossing $647,429.
