Scarlett Johansson Signs On to Star in DreamWorks’ ‘Ghost in the Shell’ (EXCLUSIVE) :drool:

"Following the success of “Lucy,” Scarlett Johansson looks ready to take on another action pic, this one coming from the world of Japanese anime.

Johansson is set to star in DreamWorks’ adaptation of the popular anime pic “Ghost in the Shell.” Deadline Hollywood had reported that the actress had the offer to star but at the time she was still undecided about taking the role. Sources now say she has agreed to star in the pic.

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. Avi Arad and Steven Paul are producing the film from a script by Bill Wheeler. Mark Sourian is exec producing.

Insiders also tell Variety that Paramount has the option to come on as co-producer and financier and that decision is expected in the coming weeks.

DreamWorks principal Steven Spielberg is a huge fan of the original and has long wanted to get this film off the ground. A commitment from a star like Johansson should help in getting the pic greenlit for production."

Dreamworks funding requirements:

1) Motoko must at all costs bar none be played by a white actress.

2) all depictions of ultra-violence/sexuality from original managa & anime must be removed without question.

3) all philosophical themes must be simplified by a factor of at least 75%.

4) original fans of the franchise must be ignored. This release is 100% targeted towards a typical american family unit, who wouldn't know any better even if their lives depended on it.

Then I guess that this movie is screwed, even if Spielberg is a huge fan. Don't get me wrong; I'll certainly watch this, with little to no expectations, but I'll be happier when / if I hear of a Japanese studio doing their own version of the movie, preferably with someone of the caliber of Mamoru Oshii on board, in a major way.
