Film News - Ghost In The Shell - Rila Fukushima Joins CastThe Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports that actress Rila Fukushima has joined the cast of DreamWorks’ Ghost In The Shell starring Scarlett Johansson.

 

The official synopsis for Ghost In The Shell is as follows:

Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, Ghost In The Shell follows the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.

 

The report doesn’t indicate what role Fukushima will be playing in the American adaptation of the popular manga of the same name, though she will be familiar to some for her roles in The Wolverine as Yukio and for playing Tatsu Yamashiro aka Katana in the DC show on the CW network Arrow.

 

Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) is directing this film which also stars Michael Pitt, who will be playing the films antagonist which is a hacker named Kuze aka The Laughing Man, as well as Juliette Binoche (Dr. Ouelet), Pilou Asbæk (Batou), Michael Wincott, Joseph Naufahu (Police Commander Johns), Takeshi Kitano (Daisuke Aramaki),Christopher Obi (Ambassador Kiyoshi), Kaori Momoi and members of Section 9 played by Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara and Tuwanda Manyimo.

 

From what I’ve seen Fukushima in The Wolverine and Arrow, I’ve very much enjoyed her performances as she’s really good in the action sequence side of things and she brings an interesting role to her roles, particularly of what she brought to the table in Season 3 of Arrow.

 

Ghost In The Shell is scheduled for cinematic release on the 31st March 2017.
