Scarlett Johansson has proved that she is a great action star in recent years as Black Widow... now she is kicking ass once again in Lucy.

Lucy sees Johansson back on the big screen this summer as she tackles the action/sci-fi genre with Luc Besson.

Besson has written and direction Lucy, as he returns to the director's chair for the first time since The Family last year: this is also the first time that Besson has worked with Johansson on a film project.

We have a brand new clip from the film, which shows Lucy being her charming and persuasive self:

Morgan Freeman is another big name on the Lucy cast list, while Min-sik Choi and Amr Waked will also star.

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history.

Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

We are big fans of Scarlett Johansson here at FemaleFirst, and we are looking forward to seeing her explore an interesting new role in Lucy.

Lucy is released 22nd August.
