Scarlet Johansson is a Futuristic Robot in 'Ghost in the Shell'

Despite the whitewashing controversy over casting a white actress in a what was a very famous Japanese animated film and franchise, everyone involved in the movie is pretty unapologetic about it and it's headed for a big release on March 31st. Unfortunately, it'll probably also be a hit and do nothing to discourage studios from continuing to refuse to cast Asian or Asian-American actresses as leads in these properties.
