DreamWorks has reportedly made a $10 million offer for actress Scarlett Johansson to star in their live-action Ghost in the Shell remake. There is no word yet on whether or not the actress plans on accepting the offer.
We reported last month that The Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie was in talks to star in the adaptation of Masamune Shirow's Japanese Manga comics. However, those talks have fallen apart, and now Robbie is being eyed to star in Warner Bros.' recently announced Suicide Squad adventure.
Ghost in the Shell centers on members of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission, who investigate technological crimes. The manga spawned a number of anime adaptations, including Ghost In The Shell, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Ghost in the Shell: Individual Eleven, Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man and Ghost in the Shell 2.0.
Scarlett Johansson has starred in three successful movies this year, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Chef and Lucy. She will next be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, reprising her role as Black Widow.
