Takeshi Kitano joins Ghost in the Shell

kitanoThe Live-Action-Adaption of Ghost in the Shell just got 200% more interesting: „Japan's Cinema Today are reporting that Kitano Takeshi - the iconic director and performer - has joined the cast of the Rupert Sanders directed, live action adaptation of classic anime and manga Ghost In The Shell.“ His role, however, is a minor one (I'm guessing here, I'm not really familiar with anything but the first movie and some very few episodes of the anime-series), he plays Section 9 chief Arakami Daisuke.
