A petition has been created calling for Scarlett Johansson to be replaced by an Asian actress for the upcoming silver screen adaptation of Japanese comic series Ghost In The Shell.
Care2, a social advocacy website, announced this news days after the news of Johansson’s casting. The DreamWorks-Disney film is scheduled for release April 14, 2017.
The petition notes that barely over 4 percent of speaking roles go to Asian actors, according to a USC Annenberg survey, and asks DreamWorks to “stop whitewashing Asian characters.”
The online petition states, “The original film is set in Japan, and the major cast members are Japanese… So why would the American remake star a white actress? The industry is already unfriendly to Asian actors without roles in major films being changed to exclude them.
“(Production company) DreamWorks could be using this film to help provide opportunities for Asian-American actors in a market with few opportunities for them to shine. Please sign the petition asking them to reconsider casting Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell and select actors who are truer to the cast of the original film!”
“Ghost in the Shell” is based on a franchise iconic Japanese media began as a manga in 1989 and become anime movies, television series and video games. It is set in a future Japan and its main characters are members of a group of cyber-terrorism work.
Manga and anime have raised questions regarding long-ethnicity. Characters tend to look traditionally Japanese or not, for example, very realistic. In any case, they are highly idealized, with huge eyes, and hair Aqualine features natural colors like blue or pink. They often seem tall and slender. Women are often impossibly curvy
