I can't think of a single japanese actress who is well known enough to have draw for American audiences.
It appears to be a money thing. Big studios don't want to risk money on unknowns (to an American audience). Many, many movies don't get made the way the fans might want them to because of business concerns,
Would you rather have Scarlett J or no big budget Hollywood movie? Studios aren't going to risk big money ($100 million plus production and advertising -my guess) on unknowns.
Vote with your wallet. Make sure you don't watch it. Green is the only color the big studios care about.
