The Ghost In The Shell movie from Rupert Sanders and Dreamworks is now starting to cast other roles in the film, which has Scarlett Johansson headlining as The Major. A new member of Section 9 has been cast in the film, and while it’s not a Japanese actor, he’s not American.
Danish actor Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones, Ben-Hur, The Borgias), who actually had scenes with Scarlett in Lucy will play fan-favorite character Batou. The rough and tumble second in command, who just happened to lead the sequel to the original anime film Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence. It’s a big role and could lead to a spin-off, if this movie becomes successful.
