Scarlett Johansson has signed up for yet another action franchise. The Captain America: The Winter Soldier actress will take on the lead role in anime-based, live-action thriller Ghost in the Shell. Last year she had received an offer to star in Ghost in the Shell as well as Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie. Now it seems that Johansson has agreed to star…..for a cool $10 million! Damn!
Based on the Japanese comic book, the story follows the exploits of a member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime. Rupert Sanders is on board to direct, Ari Arad, Avi Arad and Steven Paul are producing. Former DreamWorks executive Mark Sourian will executive produce the adaptation.
So what do you think about the casting of Johansson? Do you think that Johansson is the perfect fit? If not then who would be your ideal female lead?
