Scarlett Johansson Offered $10 Million to Star in "Ghost in the Shell"

Posted: October 17th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Scarlett Johansson Offered $10 Million to Star in "Ghost in the Shell"Submit Comment
Last month, it was reported that "The Wolf of Wall Street" star Margot Robbie was in talks with DreamWorks to star in a live-action adaptation of the popular mange "Ghost in the Shell," which is being written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island).

Apparently negotiations broke down and Robbie has moved on to other projects. Meanwhile, DreamWorks just made a $10 million offer to Scarlett Johansson to take over the role. The high salary reflects Johansson's work as Black Widow and the $412 million worldwide gross of her "Lucy" action film.

"Ghost in the Shell" follows the exploits of a member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime.

Scar Jo would look a little like the heroine, I'll give you that much, but I expect we will get another Ultraviolet or Aeon Flux instead. Remember those? Pretty f*cking horrible. And Theron in hair dye was no joy. Just leave the damned thing alone. You cannot handle the intricies and nuances of Japanese anime, so why the f*ck even try?

Another hollow shell of a film that will be but a shade of the inspirational, groundbreaking anime...

Scar Jo was paid very little for Under The Skin and now she's offered $10 mil!

Go figure.

I didn't think Lucy sucked at all. I found it refreshingly streamlined and entertaining, but also more playfully bizarre and visually interesting than all the other summer movie bullsh*t.

But casting ScarJo might be a tad too predictable here, basically merging her recent screen personas of Black Widow, Lucy and the alien from Under the Skin into one to play Major Motoko.

But I also understand the studio opting for her marquee value.

@Papillion
Because the combination of her star power and the anime's original fanbase would guarantee a solid box office return. Not to mention her fully nude would get a lot of attention.

UNDER THE SKIN should've bee'll etln called OVER THE LABIA, because I was there, Scarlett.
Do you hear me, ScarJo?

Yes, fellas, I ate out Scarlet Johansson years ago.

If that is even remotely true I demand you tell the story of how you did it. If it's not, well good story. LOL

@Sleuth. I ran into her at a coffee house. I asked her if she needed some cream, she said yeah, and it was on like donkey kong.
She made my wiener feel funny.
Good girl.
