Between action films like The Avengers, comedies like Don Jon and sci-fi dramas like Her, Scarlett Johansson has more than proved herself as one of Hollywood's most versatile leading ladies. Following the success of her mind-bending thriller Lucy, it has just been announced that she has signed on to star in DreamWorks Studio's live-action adaptation of the popular anime Ghost in the Shell. Based on a highly popular Japanese manga series, Ghost follows an officer in the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime. We're still a long way from even getting so much as a teaser image, but this news brings us one step closer to it becoming a reality.
