Movie News: Scarlett Johansson Offered 'Ghost in the Shell'; Chris Rock's 'Top Five' Gets Funny First Trailer

17 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ghost in the Shell: Reportedly, Scarlett Johansson (Lucy) has been offered $10 million to star in Ghost in the Shell, the upcoming live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga. Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) was in talks for the lead role last month, but evidently that didn't work out. Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) is set to direct the new version, which follows a covert agent who fights high-tech crimes. [Deadline]   Pete's Dragon: Robert Redford is in talks to star in Disney's new version of Pete's Dragon.

Roar: Tigers Of The Sundarbans created by world class VFX technicians and cinematographers

17 October 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The Sundarbans region of West Bengal is one of the most deadly albeit breathtakingly gorgeous places in the world. Because of the unstable terrain and dangers in the form of lethal reptiles and of course, the majestic Bengal tigers, this area remains secluded in mystery and very few people get to experience the visual splendor that this place has to offer. When film-makers Abis Rizvi and Kamal Sadanah embarked on the journey to make Roar: Tigers Of The Sundarbans, their objective was to give the audience a taste of action, drama and thrill of the amazing Sundarbans and the majestic tigers in the best possible way.

For this, they roped in Anibrain, one of Asia’s leading VFX agencies, famous for their work in Hollywood films like The Amazing Spiderman, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Ghost Rider and Resident Evil among others.

The journey has been long and arduous. »

Scarlett Johansson Offered Lead in Live-Action Adaptation of Ghost In The Shell

17 October 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last month, we reported that Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) was in talks to star in Rupert Sanders' (Snow White and the Huntsman) live-action adaptation of the classic manga/anime, Ghost in the Shell.  The story focuses on Major Motoko Kusanagi, the leader of a covert ops unit that fights cyber-terrorists.  Motoko has a fully synthetic cyborg body but retains her human essence/soul or “ghost.”  According to Deadline, DreamWorks has decided to now offer the lead role to Scarlett Johansson with a bigger payday, which has now pushed Robbie towards Suicide Squad. Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Johansson is being offered $10 million to star in Ghost in the Shell, which obviously has franchise potential if it's a hit.  Additionally, switching from Robbie to Johansson is the safer bet.  Robbie is a star on the rise, and while she's got two big movies coming up with Focus and Tarzan, »

Scarlett Johansson Offered 'Ghost In The Shell,' Robert Redford Rides David Lowery's 'Pete's Dragon'

17 October 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Luc Besson is showing remarkable restraint by ruling out a sequel to this summer's smash hit "Lucy," but that won't stop every executive around town from throwing action scripts at the feet of Scarlett Johansson. The actress, who already has Marvel fans campaigning for a Black Widow spinoff, now has Warner Bros. offering her the lead role in a long-in-the-works live action adaptation of a cult classic anime movie. Deadline reports that the studio has a $10 million check waiting for Johansson for the starring gig in "Ghost In The Shell." "The Wolf Of Wall Street" star Margot Robbie had previously been circling the part, but the role is ScarJo's if she wants it. Rupert Sanders ("Snow White And The Huntsman") is attached to direct, and clearly WB aren't afraid of spending money on this film, so we'll see where this goes. Speaking of remakes, "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" helmer David Lowery »

Scarlett Johansson Offered Ghost In The Shell Lead Role

17 October 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A month ago it was reported that Wolf of Wall Street co-star Margot Robbie was in talks to play the lead role in the live-action feature film adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. According to Deadline, she is instead likely to join DC Entertainment's Suicide Squad, which we reported on yesterday. Looks like those casting reports are true. 

The article goes on to reveal that DreamWorks has now offered the part to Scarlett Johansson with a $10 million dollar payday. There's no word yet on whether she has accepted the offer, but the part is apparently hers for the taking if she wants it. Johansson might just end up being our Motoko, but that name is sure to be changed for American audiences.

A lot of fans of the classic anime are very unhappy with the fact that the studio is casting a white woman to play the role of a Japanese character. »

Scarlett Johansson Offered Lead Role In Ghost In The Shell

17 October 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A little while back, we brought you the news that The Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie was eyeing the lead role in DreamWorks’ live-action rendition of popular manga series, Ghost in the Shell. However, now that the actress has entered talks to star in the recently-announced Suicide Squad film — along with Tom Hardy & Will Smith — the role has reportedly been offered to a certain Ms. Romanoff.

That’s right, according to Deadline, DreamWorks has turned its attention towards Scarlett Johansson, with the studio offering an alleged $10 million to secure the actress’ place in the long-gestating manga. Though the jury is still out on whether the Lucy star will sign on for the project, we assume she’ll step into the shoes of one Motoko Kusanagi.

For the uninitiated, Ghost in the Shell is best described as post-cyberpunk anime that follows Kusanagi — a cybernetic human that leads a law »

NBC Commits To A Bill Lawrence Pilot Of The It Crowd

17 October 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The I.T Crowd is something of a British institution. It is a beloved TV comedy from the pen of the incredibly talented Graham Linehan (Father Ted), which follows the slightly surreal, completely hilarious escapades of some technical support workers at a large corporation. Ultimately comprising four 6 episode seasons and a one-off ‘special’, the show aired in the UK from 2006 to 2010, with its single, triumphant return hitting screens to great acclaim in 2013. It helped launch the careers of its three main cast members – Chris O’Dowd (Dinner For Schmucks, Bridesmaids, This Is 40), Richard Ayoade (Submarine, The Watch, The Double) and Katherine Parkinson (Sherlock, The Honourable Woman), and also its main supporting player, Matt Berry (Moon, Snow White And The Huntsman). In the UK, it is widely held as the gold standard for TV comedy, and now, NBC have committed themselves to a Us pilot of the show, from Scrubs creator, »

Scarlett Johansson offered lead in Ghost in the Shell

17 October 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was reported that Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) was in talks to join DreamWorks’ adaptation of the anime classic Ghost in the Shell, but it seems those negotiations have fallen through as Deadline is reporting that the studio has made Scarlett Johansson (Lucy) a $10 million offer to lead the film.

Ghost in the Shell centres on a covert ops unit who specialise in fighting technology related crime. Based on the manga by Masamune Shirow, it was adapted into an anime in 1995, while a live-action adaptation has been in the pipeline at DreamWorks since 2008. Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) is currently set to direct, from a script by William Wheeler (The Hoax).

Johansson Is Offered ‘Ghost In The Shell’ As ‘Suicide Squad’ Assembles

16 October 2014 11:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rupert Sanders is apparently targeting Scarlett Johansson for the lead role in Ghost In The Shell. It was earlier reported that Margot Robbie, of The Wolf Of Wall Street fame, was up for the part, but perhaps due to the success of Lucy and The Avengers, Johansson is the action star of choice. Although Robbie is still aiming for the DC adaptation of Suicide Squad which is looking to acquire Will Smith and Tom Hardy for the DC adaptation centred on super villains carrying out black op missions for the government.

Plans for a live action Hollywood version of manga/anime Ghost In The Shell have been in the pipeline for a very long time. First released in 1989, the film focuses on a division of police investigating cyber crimes. From the mind of Masamune Shirow, it was certainly before its time and went on to influence works such as The Matrix. »

Scarlett Johansson Offered 'Ghost in the Shell' Lead Role For $10M

16 October 2014 11:32 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Scarlett Johansson could be looking at a major payday pretty soon. The actress is being offered $10M to play the lead role in DreamWorks' live-action adaptation of the Japanese media franchise Ghost In The Shell.

The film is being directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) with a screenplay by William Wheeler.

Based on the series by Masamune Shirow, Ghost in the Shell is about the members of a covert ops unit that take on technology-related crime.

Earlier this year, Margot Robbie was said to be in early talks to star in the film, but the talks fell through. And DreamWorks is doing good by changing up their casting choice. Nothing against the charming Robbie (she's lovely), but Johansson's a major movie star nowadays. She's basically the only actress who's been able to infiltrate the boys club (ahem, Marvel's Cinematic Universe), and let's not forget that her last film (Lucy) made over $400M. »

Scarlett Johansson linked with Ghost In The Shell remake

16 October 2014 10:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Off the back of Lucy and Under The Skin, Scarlett Johansson could pocket $10m by taking on the lead in the live action Ghost In The Shell.

If you're looking for the biggest star of the year of either gender when it comes to science fiction, look no further than Scarlett Johansson. Even before you get to her reprising the role of Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, her 2014 double bill of Under The Skin and Lucy has given her critical acclaim and a big box office hit. Unsurprisingly, whenever a major sci-fi project arises now, she's going to be on the list.

The latest example? The long mooted live action adaptation of manga Ghost In The Shell. The tech crime thriller had been linked with The Wolf Of Wall Street's Margot Robbie, but it's now being reported that Johansson has been offered the lead role. Robbie »

Recently, it was reported that The Wolf Of Wall Street's Margot Robbie was up for the lead role of Motoko Kusanagi, the cyborg heroine of the series, but apparently aggresive negotiations to get her into David Ayer's just-announced Suicide Squad may have derailed »

Tech Support: Visual effects Oscar race features apes, raccoons and 'Interstellar'

9 October 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Best Visual Effects is often the place where the Academy recognizes what it is frequently accused of avoiding elsewhere: mainstream spectacle. Blockbusters reign in this category, at least at the nomination stage, with fantasy films, franchises and other money-makers always featuring prominently. The branch also has its specific fetishes, at least historically (talking animals immediately jumps to mind), though, in recent years, it has seemingly been all 3D, all the time. There are dozens if not hundreds of individuals who work on a film’s visual effects but the nomination can ultimately be shared by only four of them – usually the special effects supervisor and three visual effects supervisors.  While some names are "favorites" of the branch (John Frazier, Joe Letteri), this branch is hardly the most insular and tends to be more concerned about the work on display. We will receive a hint of the way they are »
