Scarlett Johansson Drives a Peugeot 308 in the Middle of Paris in “Lucy”

In her latest Sci-Fi movie to be released on the 25th of June, Scarlett Johansson is playing Lucy, a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks out and turns her into a superhuman. Partly shot in Paris, the movie finds the 29-year old actress at the wheel of the European Car of the Year, the Peugeot 308, driving in the middle of the city.

Directed by the same guy that did “The Fifth Element” and “Taken 2”, Luc Besson, “Lucy” is a 2014 English-language French superhero film shot in Taipei, Paris and New York City, that stars Johansson as the title character, along with Morgan Freeman.

After accidentally getting caught in a smuggling drug deal and due to the leak of the substance in her body, Lucy becomes a superhuman, accessing much more than the normal 10% of her brain capacity. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and chooses not to feel pain or other discomforts.

Having all her abilities enhanced, the producers thought it would be quite interesting to shoot a chasing scene right in the heart of Paris, having Scarlett driving a Peugeot 308 to the opposite traffic. Considering Paris’ heavy traffic, we have to admit it kind of came natural for the producers to choose a French-based small family car.

In case you haven’t heard, the second generation model was unveiled last year and became 2014’s European Car of the Year, beating the BMW i3 and Tesla Model S. On the other hand, considering the character Johansson is playing in the Sci-Fi movie is able to move stuff with her mind, I guess even a Hummer H1 would’ve done the job.
