Something interesting came into my facebook feed while I was "working" today. Apparently, someone is making a live action ghost in the shell movie with Scarlet Johanson playing the stoic purple haired chick. I saw that some people were raging about it on social media.
A few things:
1. I don't think anyone can play the purple haired chick well. Race doesn't really factor into that. Personally, I would've hired the main female role in the Resident Evil movies for the job because that's probably the closest thing we got.
2. Are people just raging about a Japanese character being played by a white girl?
Have you heard of this nerdrage going on? What's your thoughts? Is there more to it than i'm mentioning?
I mean, i'll probably get a bootleg copy regardless.
