“I feel fortunate to have opened this way,” he says.
“The audience has gotten used to see how Scarlett Johansson save the world thanks to his role as Black Widow in ‘Iron Man 2’, ‘The Avengers’ or ‘ Captain America: Winter Soldier”, but the actress never imagined that he would become a heroine of the film’s action.
“Certainly, never thought I was going to spend so much time handling a semi-automatic weapon”, said between laughs the actress.
“The idea that I could embody a superheroine, so enigmatic and aware of his powers as a Black Widow, a possibility was not even ten years ago.” I didn’t think that my career was going to take this direction, but I feel fortunate to have opened that way because I think it is unprecedented. The truth is that I never imagined it,”he added.
Bearing in mind that curriculum, it thicken in the near future with ‘ Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is not surprising that the Frenchman Luc Besson, creator of mythical heroines in works like ‘Nikita’ (1990), ‘The fifth element’ or ‘Lion’ (1994) (1997), set it to star in ‘Lucy’, premiere in the U.S. on Friday.
“The character of Lucy is a kind of culmination of all that Luc created earlier,” said the singer of 29 years, expecting their first child, from his relationship with the French journalist Romain Dauriac.
“When I met Luc, and he offered me the role, yet there was no script. I only knew that it was a project that had waited ten years. The only basis that had to accept the offer was his previous work, he knew perfectly. And I accepted,”explained.
The difficulty of the role in ‘Lucy’
‘Lucy’ is an action thriller that examines, in terms of science fiction, what would happen if a person could make use of 100 percent of their brain power and access to the most unexpected corners of his mind.
That is what happens to the character of Johansson, an American student in Taiwan, when, by accident, a drug gives you superhuman powers that are growing steadily.
“The challenge was to incarnate a woman in constant transition, destined to lose his humanity. I tried that, during its evolution, Lucy stick to establish connections with small things, like the texture of things or the colors… You should get those traces of inner life be made palpable. It was very difficult”, he said.
Morgan Freeman, Choi Min-sik and Analeigh Tipton, complete the distribution of the tape.
The real life of Johansson, however, has little to do with the acrobatics and physical demands that require those tapes.
“I’ve never fought with anyone. I am a very peaceful person. Don’t I fight with my hands, but with my words”, said the artist, who tried his luck in the music with the discs ‘Anywhere I Lay My Head’, solo, and ‘Break Up’, along with Pete Yorn in 2008 and 2009.
For next year, the actress, as well as meet the Coen in ‘ Hail, Caesar!’ and lend his voice to snake Kaa in the new ‘The jungle book’, of Jon Favreau, made his debut as a Director with ‘Summer Crossing’, adaptation of the first novel by Truman Capote.
In his career, which began 20 years ago, he has worked with names such as Robert Redford, Woody Allen, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze, and there is a lesson that is has been recorded of all those shootings.
“Cinema is a collaborative work. It works best when all are hired because they are the best in theirs. There must be an open conversation and that the entire team shares the vision of the director. When that notion is lost, also the possibility to enrich and expand your vision is lost. I know that everyone contributes. The pieces, together, make work”, was completed.
