Scarlett Johansson Offered Live-Action Ghost In The Shell Movie

Reportedly Scarlett Johansson has been offered $10 million to play the lead role in a live-action adaptation of the famous Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell.

Apparently DreamWorks were eyeing Margot Robbie, but she appears very close to signing on for Warner Bros.’s DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad.

Johansson is a hot commodity coming off the action movie Lucy and is being sought-after for other lead action roles. So it’s not surprising that this piece of news has come out. Rumor has it that Black Widow will play a small-to-non-existent role in Captain America 3, as opposed to the significant role she had in The Winter Soldier. So it seems like her schedule could work to take on this project. What do you think? Do you want to see Johansson on screen as Major Motoko Kusanagi? What other casting suggestions do you have?
