Scarlett Johansson, Lucy
How does one describe Luc Besson's "Lucy"? Well, we'll just let Scarlett Johansson explain it herself. "I wouldn't say it's science fiction, but it's definitely a thriller," she told Darren Aronofsky in Interview magazine last fall. "I play a character who, throughout the course of the film, begins to use a greater and greater capacity of her brain."

Scarlett Johansson Lucy
Over the next month, we're going to see two different sides to Scarlett Johansson. She'll be doing the superhero thing in Marvel's "Captain America: The First Avenger" and she'll also been roaming the Scottish countryside, picking up men and killing them in Jonathan Glazer's fantastic "Under The Skin." But if you prefer your ScarJo in ass-kicking mode, good news, because she's got another action flick on the way.

Remember when Luc Besson said he was retiring? That was pretty funny (and short-lived). Dude has never been busier and is a mogul now, first and foremost, at the head of the very successful production house EuropaCorp. And the Besson brand, for better or worse, now stands in for mid-budget action fare like "Taken," "Columbiana" and "Lockout" that even if they don't do well in theaters, don't cost much to make, and tend to have a long shelf life. And while as a director he's currently working on "Malavita" with Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, it looks like he's ready to return to his familiar milieu of women kicking ass.
