With Margot Robbie being linked to the Suicide Squad movie these days, it looks like Scarlet “Black Widow” Johansson is now in talks with Dreamworks over the role of Ghost in The Shell’s Major Motoko Kusanagi.
Johansson made a great Black Widow in The Marvel Cinematic Universe. and apparently despite me not liking Lucy, it was okay because of her. I’m okay with this… but can we get either a fresh face? We need a pantheon of bad ass, butt kicking women! I would LOOooooVE for them to cast an actual Asian woman in this role!
Chinese actress Li Bingbing was awesome as Ada Wong in Resident Evil Retribution, but if she is too mature, someone else who… you know what? No one is jumping to my mind, that’s how messed up Hollywood is right now concerning Asian actors!
I really hope they don’t screw Ghost in The Shell up. While in the city of a future Tokyo they could certainly have a lot of Caucasian people, if they white wash GiTS, I honestly do not want to watch it. I can totally imagine them making the setting a west or east coast city like San Francisco, L.A., or New York. I REALLY do not want that either, let alone both of these things!
