This is how you remake Ghost in the Shell!

The casting of Scarlett Johansson in the new Paramount Pictures live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell has elicited accusations of ‪#‎whitewashing‬ amid other criticisms, so I reached out to the first woman to portray a live-action Kusanagi, Christine Adams, to get an Asian-American point of view.

Christine is a full time model and gamer, cast in the privately funded GITS PROJECT 2501 from director Ash Thorpe, which sought to recreate the opening title sequence from Mamoru Oshii's animated adaptation of Masamune Shirow's manga. Matt and Christine talk about how a modeling career can launch from playing Dungeons & Dragons and the challenges for people of color in the white dominated world of American movies. Listen to it here on this amazing episode of Pod Sequentialism with Matt Kennedy presented by La Luz de Jesus Gallery & Meltdown Comics!
