EuropaCorp has officially found the main cast for their upcoming big-budget actioner Lucy.

The film centers on a female drug mule (played by Scarlett Johansson) who gains superhuman powers after her cargo leaks into her bloodstream.

Freeman will play a professor who specializes in neurology, and is apparently the only person that can help Lucy survive.

Freeman’s casting comes as he wraps Jon Turteltaub‘s star-studded new comedy, Last Vegas. He most recently starred in Louis Leterrier‘s Now You See Me.

Lucy is set to debut on the big screen in late 2014.
