Scarlett Johansson, last seen in Avengers Assemble and as Janet Leigh in Hitchcock, is in talks to star in Luc Besson’s action-thriller Lucy.  The film will see Johansson as the titular Lucy, a woman being used as a drugs mule.  But when the drugs find their way into her body it gives her all manner of super ability.  The once normal Lucy now posses physically enhanced abilities, is immune to pain, can absorb information instantly and has telepathic powers.  Clearly the South Park mantra of “Drugs are bad” doesn’t apply here.  Besson, who is no stranger to super-women having directed The Fifth Element, is writing and directing this one.  Johansson meanwhile is keeping hold of her personal trainer from the currently shooting Captain America: The Winter Soldier to keep her physically tuned.  Johansson will be seen later this year opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Don Jon before going all killer on us in Under The Skin.  Source – The Hollywood Reporter

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email:
