Universal Moves Up Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Lucy’ to July 25

Universal has moved up the action pic “Lucy” starring Scarlett Johansson two weeks earlier to July 25.

Luc Besson penned and directed the pic.

The film was originally slated for Aug. 8 , just a week after Marvel opens “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which has started to build positive buzz in recent weeks.

‘Guardians’ bows on Aug. 1 and Universal clearly would like to get out in front of that film.

Morgan Freeman also stars with Virginie Besson-Silla, with EuropaCorp producing.
