In the science fiction movie Lucy from 2014, played by Scarlett Johansson, a woman who takes the CPH4 gains psychokinetic skills; she utilizes much more of her brain than usual. It ends with Lucy reaching 100% brain capacity, transcending thought, space, and time, and becoming an omnipotent entity. A supercomputer that develops a single flash drive to connect to the real world, Lucy leaves the flash drive as a souvenir for Prof. Samuel Norman, played by Morgan Freeman.
The movie had a global box office haul of over $ 460 million, making it the highest-grossing French production ever. EuropaCorp, Besson’s production firm, has announced the creation of a spin-off series.
The French director is probably involved in the project, though he did not confirm his involvement. Freeman will reprise his role, but other than that, we still need to learn about the story and the actors.
It’s unlikely that Scarlett Johansson would appear in the series again, given how the movie ended. Also, the universe shown to us in the film, along with the entire tale that centers on the CPH4 drug, is large enough and outlined to make the narrative framework of this spin-off stable and fascinating.
