Margot Robbie is on fire now after her appearance with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street. She’s currently working on Tarzan as Jane Porter. Now we hear that she’s in talks to be in the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie for DreamWorks, according to The Wrap.

It doesn’t say whether she’ll be portraying the lead character, Major Kusanagi, but it seems highly likely.

The movie is based on the manga by Masamune Shirow (Appleseed), which had a successful anime that is considered a masterpiece by many critics. (The Matrix film was heavily inspired by it.) Ghost in the Shell features Major Kusanagi and Section 9 as they combat corrupt officials, companies, and cyber-criminals.

The live-action Ghost in the Shell movie will be directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) with Bill Wheeler (NBC’s The Cape) penning the script.

What do you think of Robbie as the sexy cyborg?
