Kitano Joins Live Action GHOST IN THE SHELL

Well, now, this is some interesting news ...

Japan's Cinema Today are reporting that Kitano Takeshi - the iconic director and performer - has joined the cast of the Rupert Sanders directed, live action adaptation of classic anime and manga Ghost In The Shell.

The production has taken some heat for the - to this point - all white casting (Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbaek and Michael Pitt have been announced thus far) and the casting of the iconic Kitano as Section 9 chief Arakami Daisuke should alleviate some of that. This will mark Kitano's first appearance in a Hollywood film since 1995's Johnny Mnemonic and hopefully the results here are somewhat better.
