Hey you, action fan. Guess what? Writer and director Luc Besson‘s forthcoming sci-fi action thriller, Lucy, is getting a kick-ass R-rating. And in a world where PG-13 movies (some good, and some needlessly rated as so) are domimating the conversation, it’s good to see that a portion of action film fans who love a good old-fashioned, grown-up R-rated movie haven’t been forgotten.
Scarlett Johansson stars as the eponymous Lucy, a poor girl who is kidnapped and forced by the mob to work as a drug mule. One day, a container of futuristic drugs that has been implanted inside her begins to leak, and as a result Lucy begins to develop superhuman powers. Now, with the ability to move objects with her mind and bend reality to her will, Lucy looks to get revenge on the men who have kept her imprisoned.
