    Scarlett Johansson is in the midst of snagging her next role!

    The stunning actress is in final negotiations to star in French director Luc Besson's latest creation, Lucy.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film, which was written and will be directed by Besson, is about "a woman forced to become a drug mule. But the drug instead goes into her system, transforming her into an ass-kicking machine. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain and other discomforts."

    The 28-year-old beauty is definitely no stranger to butt-kicking. She has a handful of action movies under her belt, starring as the badass Black Widow in Iron Man 2, The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldierwhich she's currently filming.

    LUCY will start shooting promptly after Captain America is wrapped, but the busy actress still finds time to attend influential events like Saturday's 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner.
