Reminder: That Whitewashed ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Movie is Still Happening

Guys, I know that we haven’t talked about for a while, but that terrible live action remake of the very Japanese Ghost in the Shell starring a bunch of white people is still happening. I know we all tried to forget about it, but it’s still going forward.

The latest news on this atrocity is that the Scarlett Johansson led film is moving studios — from Disney to Paramount.

I don’t know the film industry well enough to know whether this is good or bad for the film, but I know it is a thing that has happened. I hope it’s a bad thing, because as much as I love Scarlett Johansson, she should not be playing the Major.

Right now Ghost in the Shell is scheduled to come out March 31, 2017.

Let’s hope it doesn’t.
