Sci-fi spectacle Ghost in the Shell takes place in a future where cybernetic enhancements — high-tech add-ons to make yourself the best you can be — are a fact of life. But when we asked the film’s cast if they’d take advantage of such a procedure (watch our video above), given the choice, they’d prefer to stick with their flesh-and-blood body parts.
“I don’t know that I need any cyber-enhancement,” says star Scarlett Johansson, who plays the titular ghost in the shell, The Major, a human consciousness uploaded into a cyborg body. “I appreciate my flawed human self.” On second thought, though, there is one next-gen body feature she’d look into. “At this moment in time, I would like a ‘No jet-lag button.’ I’m still waiting for that advancement.”
Meanwhile, Johansson’s co-stars, Chin Han and Pilou Asbæk, do see the value in investing in a pair of robotic peepers to help them read scripts for upcoming projects. Asbæk actually has a pair of cyber-eyes on screen as Batou, the Major’s right-hand man, but they weren’t very helpful in real life. “I’d love to have cybernetic eyes, but not the Batou style” Han says, laughing. “Ones with peripheral vision!”
