Scarlett Johansson's GHOST IN THE SHELL Adds THE WOLVERINE Actress Rila Fukushima

According to a new report, The Wolverine actress Rila Fukushima has joined The Avengers star Scarlett Johansson in Dreamworks' upcoming live action adaptation of Ghost In The Shell.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Rila Fukushima has officially signed on for DreamWorks' Ghost In The Shell, which is the first live-action film adaptation of the popular Japanese manga of the same name. The report provided no further details on her character, but there's a chance she could be one of the members of Section 9.

She'll join a cast headlined by Scarlett Johansson (Captain America: Civil War) as the Major and that also features Pilou Asbæk (Game Of Thrones), Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire), Takeshi Kitano (Ryuzo and the Seven Henchmen), and Juliette Binoche (Godzilla). Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) is directing with a script from Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton) & Jamie Moss (Street Kings).

Fukushima is undoubtedly best known for her work in James Mangold's The Wolverine, where she starred along X-Men mainstay Hugh Jackman. She also appeared in the fifth season of HBO's hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones as a Red Priestess and most recently as Katana in the third season of the CW's Arrow.
