Scarlett Johansson up for English-language Ghost in the Shell adaptation?
You heard that right.
US actress Scarlett Johansson, 29, may well be a part of the live action remake of Ghost in the Shell, reports The Guardian.
That's if the Lucy actress accepts the US$10 million (S$12.72 million) paycheck being offered.
Snow White and the Huntsman's director Rupert Sanders was hired by Dreamworks in January this year to direct the film.
Ghost in the Shell, which was originally produced as a seinen manga (manga marketed to a male audience aged between 17 to 40), follows cyborg detective Major Motoko Kusanagi, team leader of a futuristic Japanese counter-terrorism organisation focused on cyber-crime.
The first movie adaptation of Ghost in the Shell was in Japanese and was released in 1995.
Would be quite cool to see how Johansson pulls this one off.
