Scarlett Johansson is set to lead Luc Besson's Lucy, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Besson will both write and direct the sci-fi action tale, which follows a young woman who gains super powers after being forced to work as a drug mule.

Johansson, who last year appeared in both Marvel's The Avengers and Hitchcock, will next appear in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, Don Jon. She's currently in production on her third outting as Natasha "Black Widow" Romanov in Anthony and Joe Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Besson, best known for films like Leon: The Professional and The Fifth Element, will release his latest, Malavita, on September 20.

Universal Pictures will distribute the project in the US (and much of the world) with Besson producing through EuropaCorp alongside CEO Christophe Lambert.
