'Lucy' director Luc Besson doesn't intend to make a sequel to the action film.

Besson - who has also directed 'Leon: The Professional' and 'The Fifth Element' - has been busy promoting the film, which sees Scarlett Johansson star as a character who gains 100 per cent access to her cognitive abilities.

Besson, 55, has already received a number of offers to make a sequel, but says the prospect is unlikely, telling reporters in Taipei: ''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.''

The film, which also stars Hollywood legend Morgan Freeman, has already grossed more than £100 million worldwide, and Besson says that its success is owed to the fact that it is something ''totally weird and strange''.

Earlier this week, Besson explained the ambition behind 'Lucy' is to make viewers question ''what's real and what's fake''.

He told the Guardian: ''If you're asking the question of what's real and what's fake, I'm the winner! Because that's exactly what I want. I want people to say, 'Hold on, what's true and what's fake?'''
