Back in April we got our first look at Scarlett Johansson as the Major in director Rupert Sanders' live-action Ghost in the Shell adaptation, but we haven't seen much else since.

More after the jump.
Hollywood Reporter's comics/geek media focused Heat Vision has learned that the live-action Ghost in the Shell has added Tokyo-born actress Rila Fukushima (The Wolverine's Kukio, Arrow's Katana). Her role is not specified. More after the jump.

Work continues on the project by Amauchi Industry and karakuri products to reproduce the Tachikomas from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex as 1/2 scale industrial robots, and a mock-up of the exterior shell of Tachikoma was recently on display at the Nico Nico Super Conference 2016.
