Scarlett Johansson Offers GHOST IN THE SHELL Movie Update

Scarlett Johansson is one of the most prominent actress in Hollywood, not only proving successful as Black Widow in the Marvel films, but also as the lead of last year’s original actioner Lucy. It was not surprise, then, when DreamWorks tapped the actress to lead its action-centric Ghost in the Shell movie, based on the manga/anime of the same name.

Johansson officially signed on to star this past January with Snow White and the Huntsman helmer Rupert Sanders directing, and so when Collider sat down with the actress at the Avengers: Age of Ultron press day, they asked for an update on the project:

“It’s happening. It will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February and it’s me and Rupert [Sanders]; and that’s all I know.”

The studio has been developing a live-action iteration of the property for nearly six years now, so this is the closest it’s come to actually happening. And according to Johansson, if all goes according to plan, cameras will be rolling on the new Ghost in the Shell movie by this time next year.
