UPDATE: Other news sources are reporting there will be a sequel. They’re only confirming what we reported MONTHS ago. Don’t be fooled by imitators who only pretend to have insight.
Scarlett Johansson starred as LUCY in the Luc Besson film entitled, uh, Lucy. It was a HUGE hit and arguably cemented Johansson as a leading lady action-star. While it’s true that her success in The Avengers (and related titles) cannot be overstated, Lucy allowed her to step in as the lead in a genre that has been bereft of actresses. One could even say that Lucy’s box office bank was the reason Johansson and Ghost in the Shell were made.
We don’t claim to know everything but we know enough and what we know about a LUCY SEQUEL is enough to get you excited. Thanks to the industry insiders, who wish to remain anonymous, for all their help.
LUCY 2 Poll: Are you excited for a LUCY sequel?
LUCY 2 SPOILERS AND PLOT
Lucy ended with Lucy becoming a sentient super computer that exists everywhere at once. Basically, she became God. I grant you, a sequel to a story wherein a woman becomes God isn’t easy but Christianity pulled it off, why can’t Hollywood?
It isn’t that tough, you simply have her be depowered a bit. When Keanu Reeves became Superman at the end of The Matrix, it didn’t seem like there’d be a good way to have a viable sequel. He could beat up everyone and control all time and space. They made it work. Granted, it took the creators becoming chicks so, uh, maybe Luc should watch his balls.
Lucy will take a human form, one with red hair and nice breasts, because she realizes that in becoming all-knowing, she has lost her humanity. By becoming human, she will be able to once again feel what humans feel. She will embark on a mission of peace, traveling around and spreading the word of the goodness of life. Lucy 2.0 will find out that the world heard what she had to say but twisted it, making pure profit off her and demanding fealty to the so called “programmers” who claim they have a special ability to communicate with Lucy. This will anger Lucy, who will tell everyone who listens that they can speak to her whenever they wish, they simply must have love in their heart.
This will be too much for the programmers. They will bribe The Jews to kill Lucy. It won’t last. She’ll come back to life and save everyone for all eternity. The end.
Will there be a LUCY Sequel?
“With Lucy, you’ll see the end of the film. I don’t know how we can make a sequel, but if the film is huge, then I will think about it,” offered director Luc Besson. The movie brought in half a billion (with a “b”) dollars. Yeah, there’s gonna be a sequel.
Besson commented further: “I don’t see how we can do one. It’s not made for that. If I find something good enough, maybe I will, but for now I don’t even think about it.” Trust me, he’s thinking.
Possible LUCY 2 Directors
Obviously, Besson will be involved, though as we have seen with the Taken franchise, he’s willing to let others sit in the director’s chair if need be. Pete Travis directed Dredd, which had a similar tone and size, so he could fit. (I don’t think Adam Sandler will be doing it, even if his schedule frees up after Grown Ups 3).
Potential LUCY Sequel Writers
Hire Gareth Evans (he wrote The Raid also). But Alex Garland did a solid job writing Dredd, so he could work. Or, ya know, Luc Besson…

LUCY 2 Trailer
LUCY 2 Release Date
Lucy 2 will come out in August of 2018.
LUCY 2 Cast & Stars
Given that the cast of Lucy was infinitely better than the Jumper 2 cast, it’s safe to say they’ll be bringing back most of them. There is talk that a male lead, perhaps Will Smith after he’s done with Hancock 2 could appear. One executive suggested that Smith would play a younger version of Morgan Freeman. Said that executive, “They all look the same anyways.”
- Scarlett Johansson as Lucy Miller, aka, GOD(dess)
- Angelina Jolie almost got the role as Lucy in the first movie but it didn’t work out (thank goodness because the world needs A LOT more Scarlett in it). I can see Jolie having a go at things this time around. They may even use her as the lead, because now that Lucy is ubiquitous, she can be played by anyone.
- Morgan Freeman as Professor Samuel Norman. Maybe Will Smith, of course he has Suicide Squad 2 to film.
- Choi Min-sik as Mr. Jang.
Best LUCY 2 Actor or Actress
Scarlett Johansson’s breasts. I mean, just her. No, I was right the first time.
Worst LUCY 2 Actor or Actress
Choi Min-sik as Mr. Jang. Because no one likes Asian men. (This is THE most racist preview of all time. WOW!)
Potential LUCY Sequel Titles
- Lucy 2
- Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
- Lucy, you have some ‘splaining to do
- Please stop hitting me, Ricky.
- Lucy 2.0
- Lucy Revolutions
- Lucy Reloaded
- Lucy and her Balls
- Lucy: All of us are redheads
- Lucy 2: 3DD
Will LUCY 2 be Worth Seeing?
Fuck. Yes. It’s Boobs McTitterson being awesome. I hope it’s a hard R so she’s naked a lot. It won’t be though, sorry.
Will a LUCY sequel make much money?
The first Lucy cost somewhere around $40m to make and has brought in almost $470m worldwide. Yeah, it was a success. Even with a pay bump for Scarlett, Lucy 2.0 should only cost $80m and is targeted to gross $380m.
Final Thoughts on LUCY 2
It was a weird, trippy movie. Luc Besson is a genius, as we’ll soon see with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Scarlett’s only downside is that her last name isn’t easy to write. Hollywood needs this. She needs this. I need this.
