Taking to his Facebook page, Luc Besson slammed the reports that Lucy 2 is finally entering development, calling it “fake news” towards the end of his post critiquing journalists. What’s interesting about all this is that the news Besson is responding to didn’t emerge from an out-of-the-blue rumor. The information came from Mark Shmuger, the CEO of EuropaCorp, the production company that Besson co-founded. Last week, Shmuger revealed that EuropaCorp was developing Lucy 2, adding that Besson has written the script. If anything, Besson should take issue with Shmuger announcing that publicly. Given how professionally close those two are, you would think there’d be more communication concerning the status of such a project.
