Scarlett Johansson Offered Lead in 'Ghost in the Shell' Movie

Scarlett Johansson's action movie streak continues!

The "Avengers" star and new mom has reportedly been offered the lead role in a live-action feature film adaptation of the popular anime franchise "Ghost in the Shell."

DreamWorks is heading up the adaptation, which was rumored to have "The Wolf of Wall Street" star Margot Robbie attached earlier this year. "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders is attached to direct.

The "Ghost in the Shell" series centers on a special ops unit that stops crime in a future where technology and androids have become a much larger part of life. The anime series has spawned multiple iterations including a TV series and movies.

This continues a streak of action roles for Johansson, who seems to be leaving her indie "Lost In Translation" days behind for more and more big-budget, high-action films.

Most recently, Johansson starred in the Luc Besson thriller "Lucy" and is still in a multi-movie deal with Marvel as Black Widow. She's appeared in the "Iron Man" movies, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The Avengers" and is set for "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

However, Johansson has yet to accept the role. She did give birth to her first child not more than a month or two ago, so she might be taking time off with such a busy upcoming schedule with Marvel.
