The story of Lucy follows a young woman whose neurological makeup is transformed by drugs that give her superhero-level mind powers. She turns the tables on those exploiting her with these new 'ass-kicking' abilities. Luc Besson, known for female empowerment action thrillers such as The Professional and La Femme Nikita, had this to say about his latest directorial endeavor.
"I love to see a woman as a very strong character. It's like cooking: sugar with a bit of salt, and Lucy definitely can get salty."
The first trailer for Lucy is expected to arrive April 2.
