Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson is certainly a star who is at the top of her game at the moment, putting in some fantastic performances in some very interesting movies in recent years. Scarlett has probably become best known for her role as Black Widow in the Marvel movies but, while Black Widow does not actually possess any superpowers, her new character does.
Scarlett Johansson plays the titular character in the movie Lucy, which has proven to be quite a successful film already. Scarlett has opened up about working on the movie, admitting that it was one of the most unique shooting experiences that she has ever been involved in.
Johansson explained, "It was an intense experience shooting it. We shot part of the film in Taipei [Taiwan], which was very exciting. Even making it everyday, sort of, you know, brought on its own unique challenges because the character was losing the sense of her own humanity as she's gaining all of these superhuman abilities."
She added, "So there was kind of no guidelines for that. I never knew what I was going to be stepping into each day. The whole shoot had a level of surrealism to it, I suppose."
As well as starring Scarlett Johansson, the rest of the Lucy cast is also fairly impressive, with the likes of Morgan Freeman, Min-sik Choi, Amr Waked, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Pilou Asbæk, and Analeigh Tipton. Lucy has been written and directed by Luc Besson and was released in the US last month, with the movie set to hit the big screen in the UK on August 22.
