Ghost In The Shell, or GiTS as it is called by fans, is a Manga Anime film strongly linked to Japan's history in the 80-90s. 

Many fans are upset that Scarlett Johansson has been cast for the lead role in DreamWorks' upcoming adaptation. For starters - Johansson isn't Japanese. But, as the Verge points out, the "casting is even worse than it seems." It's a straight up #GiTSFail.

Defenders of #TeamScarJo point out that Johansson is one of only a handful of women that can get a movie greenlit by signing on. She's a popular actress and we should see a bit more of the movie before we judge. In the end, she's just an actress doing her job.

A video on why the big screen anime adaptation should've stuck to its cultural roots.
In this video a panel discusses how Johansson is the "safe" bet for the role. That without Johansson - the film might not have been made. The panel is a bit split, but makes the argument for Johansson as the lead role.
