Scarlett Johansson is radiant at the Japanese premiere of Ghost in the Shell

I know a lot of people are still rather displeased with the casting of Scarlett Johansson in GHOST IN THE SHELL, in the role of The Major, since the character was Asian in the original manga and subsequent 1995 animated film. I'm trying to think of this on the bright side. In order to get the kind of bankrolling needed to facilitate the production of this movie in live action form, they'd need a guarantee of some sort that the leading lady would have the box office power to recoup those bucks. There aren't exactly a lot of good dude roles in the story and while this a rising number of women in Hollywood who are commanding paychecks sizable to their male counterparts, the only actress out there who has successfully demonstrated that she can carry a movie on her name alone is ScarJo. (Well, and JLaw, to an extent. No accounting for PASSENGERS or JOY though.) In 2014, Johansson commanded movie goers' wallets to open and spring forth big bucks for LUCY, a feat considering that she was the biggest name in the film and that it was made to an art house level of financing. So, unless you want to argue that we really didn't need a live action GHOST IN THE SHELL remake at all in the first place, I think it's still safe to cut this lady some slack. Scarlett is tough enough to take on the role, let her do it.
