Scarlett Johansson Beats Margot Robbie for ‘Ghost in a Shell’


Scarlett Johansson has been tapped to star in Rupert Sanders’ (Snow White) adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s manga Ghost in a Shell for DreamWorks. She will play Major Motoko Kusanagi, a cyborg super agent fighting cyber terrorist who hack half-human/half-android beings to do crime.

Margot Robbie, the beautiful and very nude star of Martin Scorsese’s awesome Wolf of Wall Street, was said to be the front runner for the role, but Johansson ain’t chopped liver so penises everywhere will be like “what the… oh okay; that’s cool” when they hear the news.

Johansson is coming off the awesomely fun Luc Besson sci-fi actioner Lucy, Marvel’s blockbuster The Avengers, and Jonathan Glazer’s artsy-fartsy sci-fi drama Under the Skin, listed as number one in Clatto’s list of The Sexiest Horror Films of 2014.

  1. Mostly likely because Scarlett Johansson is actually a movie star, and Margot Robbie really isn’t (not yet). After LUCY, it’s clear Scarlett in any kind of action role will put buttocks in seats.
