The live-action adaptation of the popular anime and manga has reportedly found its lead actress.

A report from Variety says that Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson has signed up to star in the Ghost in the Shell movie from DreamWorks.

Ghost in the Shell will be a live-action adaptation of the anime and manga series of the same name.

Johansson has already proved that she can star in action flicks, playing Black Widow in the Avengers movies and also taking on the lead role in Lucy this year.

Last year The Wolf of Wall Street star, Margot Robbie, was rumoured to be in talks for the role, but she has since been cast in DC Comics' Suicide Squad movie.
