“Maybe next time you can design me better…”

We can’t WAIT to watch director Rupert Sanders, upcoming film take on one of the most popular Japanese mangas of all time, “Ghost in the Shell.”  The film stars Juliette Binoche, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt and of course, Scarlett Johansson as “The Major.”

There has been a bunch of backlash in the casting of Johansson as “The Major” given that the original character was Japanese.  Here is what Sanders had to say at the press launch for the trailer in Tokyo.

“To me, you know, I cast very much from the gut and I think I was very lucky to be able to get an amazing international cast of people that I’ve always really wanted to work with,” he said. “Scarlett was one of those people, and to me there’s very few actresses who’ve had 20 years of experience, who have the cyberpunk aesthetic already baked in. You know, she comes from such edgy films from Lost in Translation to Under the Skin — she’s got an incredible body of work and the attitude and toughness of her really is to me The Major.”

“But also what she’s done incredibly in this film is she’s playing an android, she’s a synthetic body with a human mind inside. She did an incredible job of nuancing the human evolving through the machine, and in a way I think why it’s very relative to a large audience, it’s kind of a coming of age story and it’s a realization of ‘I am what I am — whatever’s happened to me, good or bad, that is the sum of who I am now.’”

This one looks like a cross between the Wachowski’s “The Matrix” and Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner.”  Needless to say, we can’t wait and after watching this trailer, we have a feeling that you will feel the same way.

“Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.”
