Luc Besson’s LUCY Sequel Has a Script

Luc Besson‘s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets might not have tapped its full potential with critics and moviegoers, but the director knows how to achieve big screen success. And it looks like he’ll be returning to theaters with something he knows works, with a sequel to his 2014 hit sci-fi film Lucy.

Variety reports that Besson’s studio EuropaCorp is changing its film strategy after the ambitious, expensive Valerian didn’t deliver at the box office, and they’ll now be focusing on “making action thrillers and science-fiction films” with smaller budgets. That will apparently include a followup to the Scarlett Johansson-led Lucy, which EuropaCorp CEO Marc Shmuger recently told shareholders Besson has already written a script for.

There is no information on the movie’s plot, or whether Johansson would return, but the ending of the original was such that literally anything is possible. If you can vanish into the internet like an all powerful, omnipresent god, you can probably re-manifest yourself into human form.

Maybe in her infinite wisdom Lucy will have learned that the whole “we only use 10% of our brain” thing isn’t accurate, and we can instead focus on the superpower giving drug she was given instead? Maybe someone else can take it and also harness her god-like powers, giving her a foe worthy to face?

Are you excited for a Lucy sequel? Tell us why in the comments below.
