Update on Ghost in the Shell Live Action

There has been movement about the live action movie of Ghost in the Shell. It looks like they will be adapting the movie using the original Manga version by Masamune Shirow. They are using Laeta Kalogridis to write the script and here is an excerpt:

Q: Is that a remake of the 1995 film or is that an adaptation of the earlier manga?

Lk: “Ghost in the Shell” was originally the manga. The anime came from the original graphic novel and then — and that anime, as you know, is a relatively famous, groundbreaking piece of material — also generated two seasons of an animated television show as well. And this is an adaptation of the original manga, the original comic book that sort of began everything.

I know the Tachikoma's will in all probability be CGI, but this is something I am really looking forward to seeing how they are shown. Lets hope that Spielberg does this justice.

  1. I'm not really a Ghost in teh Shell fan myself, all I've seen is the first movie and I wasn't that nutty for it.

  2. Oh, cool. Always like the GITS movies and series :D
    Will be looking forward to this.
