Scarlett Johansson to win over Ghost in the Shell critics?
Published: 22nd April 2016 12:29
When you consider that Scarlett Johansson is one of the biggest, best and most popular actress in Hollywood today, it is rather surprising to see her getting so much backlash about being cast in a particular movie role. However, when it comes to the big screen adaptation of the classic anime Ghost in the Shell, the criticism does seem to make some sense.
When we found out that we were getting a live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell, we were all eager for Hollywood to stick close to the source material and give us an Asian actress to lead in the new movie project. That is why most people were disappointed to discover that Scarlett Johansson had been cast in the role, as they felt it was another case of Hollywood whitewashing characters.
Filming for Ghost in the Shell has been underway for quite a few weeks now and we have already seen a picture of Scarlett Johansson in that famous role but that has not managed to win over the critics. In fact, it seems to have riled them up even more, with a lot of fans insisting that they are going to boycott the movie.
With all that said, Scarlett Johansson is a hugely talented actress, while Rupert Sanders is a top director, and we are sure that they are going to do everything in their ability to win over these critics. We still have almost a year to wait for the release of Ghost in the Shell, with the film opening on March 31, 2017 in the UK and April 14, 2017 in the US.
