Project Casting

Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson is now holding an open casting call in Wellington, New Zealand.

Rachel Bullock Casting posted a casting call for extras to appear in the Dreamworks and Paramount Pictures’ upcoming live-action thriller, Ghost in the Shell. The casting call is for people of all ethnicities, age 18 and over, and able to work.

Filming is started to begin from Wellington’s Stone Street Studios in January 2016.

Dreamworks and Paramount are con-financing and co-producing the film. Paramount will handle the international release of the upcomign feature film and Dreamworks will handle the release according to their original deal with Disney. The movie is set to open on March 31, 2017.

Disney initially scheduled the release of the live-action film for April 14, 2017, but announced its plans to push forward the release of the movie into April.

Scarlett Johansson, the actress most known for Lucy, Lost in Translation, and The Avengers signed on to star in this adaptation of Masamune Shirow‘s manga, and Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) will direct off a script by William Wheeler (Hoax, The Reluctant Fundamentalist).

Johannson revealed earlier in April that the film “will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February.” Deadline reported earlier this year that she was offered $10 million for the role.
