Guess what, you guys? A Malaysian is set to appear in the Rupert Sanders-directed sci-fi film, “Ghost in the Shell“.
Cinema Online reported that Malaysian multi award-winning filmmaker Pete Teo was notified of this opportunity by his agent in Hong Kong. After reading the script for a role, he was offered a spot in the film, which is based on the 1995 Japanese anime and manga classic of the same name.
Due to the fact that Teo has signed a confidentiality agreement with Paramount Pictures, the actor can’t reveal much details about his character except that he’s be playing someone named Tony. “I can’t really say much about the film, the producers asked us to not to, and we respect their decisions. So we have to keep everything very low-key,” Teo said
However, when asked about his on screen time with lead actress Scarlett Johansson, the 44-year-old actor shared, “She’s very easy to work with, very professional, very good at what she does, always comes prepared, and very easy to get along with. A very nice person; I really like her.”
“Working on the film is amazing, I mean it is like nothing I have ever experienced before, and I’ve been in this industry for a very long time,” said the seasoned movie star before adding, “I’ve done European films before but never Hollywood, so this is my first Hollywood film, and it’s on a totally different scale!”
Be sure to look out for this Malaysian actor when “Ghost in the Shell” opens in local cinemas on 30th March 2017.
