Los Angeles: Actress Scarlett Johansson has been spotted around Taipei, shooting scenes for Luc Besson`s upcoming action-thriller ‘Lucy’.

The 28-year-old actress was photographed wearing a leopard print jacket and skimpy dress, as she works through several scenes opposite a man in a cowboy hat behind security lines, said the Hollywood Reporter.

In the film, Johansson plays a woman forced to become a drug mule.

‘Lucy’ is the biggest Hollywood production to shoot in Taiwan since local director Ang Lee`s ‘Life of Pi’.

Lucy is due to hit theatres in 2014. The project is being touted as a return to the director`s heroine-led action of the 1990s, when he released ‘La Femme Nikita’, ‘Joan of Arc’, ‘The Professional’ and ‘The Fifth Element’.
