Too little, too late?

The powers that be behind Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost In the Shell have added a little more diversity to their controversial project by tapping Rila Fukushima (TV’s Arrow, The Wolverine) for a part.

Fukushima joins Michael Pitt and Juliette Binoche in the Rupert Sanders-directed blockbuster, as well as Japanese actors Takeshi Kitano (Brother), Kaori Momoi (Memoirs of a Geisha), and Yutaka Izumihara (Unbroken), and Chin Han (Netflix’s Marco Polo) from Singapore.

An adaptation of the popular eponymous Japanese anime movie, Ghost In the Shell will feature Johansson as a member of a covert-ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in flighting tech-related crime. And kicking ass.

But that goes without saying, alright.
