Film director Luc Besson blasts paparazzi

French film director Luc Besson on Friday slammed paparazzi in Taiwan for interfering with the shooting of his latest film. Besson spent 11 days in Taipei filming ‘‘Lucy’’ with actress Scarlett Johansson. Johansson plays a drug mule whose contact with a ‘‘super-serum’’ endows her with superhuman abilities. Meeting reporters in Taipei a day after he finished shooting the Taiwan part of the film, Besson blasted the paparazzi for dogging the production, saying it was his right as a director to keep details out of the public eye until ‘‘Lucy’’ is released. Besson said work on the film would take another year.
