This is by the best news I've read tonight.
I just read this moments ago!
I do believe this is going to be one of Scarlett's best role ever in her whole carreer! I think she is perfect for Motoko Kusanagi!!! She got the body for it!!! MMmmm! Although she has a very impressive film carreer ... other films that i think are f**king brilliant are, Lucy, Her, Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and Avengers, The Winter Soldier, Avengers Age of Ultron, Under the Skin, The Prestige, The Spirit, The Perfect Score, The Island, Lost in Translation, and The Other Boleyn Girl.
I also read that Masamune Shirow is going to write manga in correlation to the story for the Live-Action film coming out March 31. 2017.
