In the past, most of Scarlett Johansson's roles have tended to emphasize the sexy actress's physical attributes. However, in her upcoming film, the producers apparently have decided to tone down her obvious beauty. Which is understandable since, in her new role, Scarlett plays the movie 'bad guy'. For one scene, she even found herself shackled to a briefcase near the Taipei 101 tower by a pair of handcuffs. But, she took it all in stride.
In this Luc Besson-helmed film, Scarlett Johansson is cast as a drug mule in the action flick, Lucy On Monday. For the role, the blonde beauty had to sport a cowboy hat, jeans, and a skin-tight red dress. Set in Taiwan, the attire seems a little out of place, but it was perfect for Johansson's character—a drug mule with super-natural powers.
Scarlett Johansson is joined in the film by veteran actor Morgan Freeman. Freeman plays a college professor and is Johansson’s nemesis. The sexy actress struts her stuff as she relies on her newly-acquired powers to avoid capture.
Playing a villain being chased through the streets of Taipei is certainly new territory for the actress who was recently voted esquire magazine sexiest Woman Alive for a second time, but it isn’t anything the busy actress can’t handle.
