Of all the manga, why do they have to white washing GIS whole plot and culture !
Firstly, there IS no nipple! If you can't find a proper Asian Major, at least get her nipple right! If SJ is too shy about her nippy, find someone else.

Secondly, if you have Major's mum an Asian, why don't you SJ just act like an Asian?

Third, you ruin the fecking plot~ WHY!!!!!!?

Imagine how Superman fan feel if Superman is black or Asian? (Now I won't want to see that).
It's like saying Michael Jackson is a white boy and having a white actor portray him in movie!
Racism does exist, because ignorance exist.

There are so many good Japanese female actress out there and you can't find one?
As an Asian, I think Hollywood is just racist to the bone

1, Starwar 1 to 6 , of all the alien cultures in the universe, Asian extinct!
2, Interstellar, yep, this explain why, because all the Asian died together with earth.

That is fine! Because I understand it come from different cultures and it's got its history of things~

But please respect other culture and DONT white wash it! White washing Major and her plot is crossing the line!

Ok, would it be fair to cast Olivia Munn or Maggie Q? :) I don't think GITS has cult status in Hollywood. One problem is that anime and manga adaptations to film should be done by the people who produced them. However, I think that great stories work whoever the characters are, even if they aren't like the originals. GITS and Death Note, for ex., have really complicated plot lines that can't simply be transposed or shortened. Afa the white washing, it is kind of sad when an Asian character is played by a non-Asian, especially if the film takes place in Asia and the character's family is all Asian. But, hey, it's about the dollars, and SJ is a hot commodity, and they hope that people who never heard of GITS will go see the movie because of her.

Ya mean there couldn't be Asians on Krypton? You wouldn't want to see that :)

Movie production is a large budget investment
this is especially so if you have lots of special effects and CGI
GITS was made to the tune of 110 million.

From the movie exec point of view, it is completely logical to
cast someone popular and bankable (to get finance) for the lead.
Cast an Asian and be true to the original?
Sorry mate, i do not have the luxury of such sentiments.

True to the original plot?
Audience are not gonna go to the box office to see a plot they
already know right? come guys, let's be logical?
So let's change it up a bit; add this and that; so we got something
to tell and sell.

You gotta know what you see comes from.

but they dun understand, with GITS you cannot do things half-ways
and take as little risk as i can.
There is no half-ways about this story, plot, character, setting, costume,
etc.

they should have listened to the fans, the numbers speak for themselves.

if you took 110 million and kept it in the bank for 3 years at a rate of 5%,
you get something like 21 million
