Ghost In The Shell (Live Action)!

Scarlett Johansson has signed on to star in DreamWorks’ Ghost in the Shell, an adaptation of the classic anime and manga series.

Johansson has of course proven her box office potential as an action star in recent years, first as Black Widow in The Avengers and more recently in Lucy. According to Variety, the film’s story will follow “the exploits of a member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime.”

The Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie was in talks to star last fall, but wound up on the Suicide Squad movie instead. Chatter about Johansson’s involvement followed but her casting was not confirmed until now.

Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) is directing the film from a script by Bill Wheeler (The Hoax).
