Upcoming action movies and sexy stars as Scarlett Johansson! One of the most famous anime films of the 90s was Ghost in the Shell, an animated adaptation of the popular Japanese manga by Masamune Shirow. Now, it’s a cult-hit!
From then, talk of a live-action adaptation has been discussed. Today, that expected movie is going to be a reality.
Dreamworks has put together director Rupert Sanders, and writer William Wheeler to work in Ghost In The Shell.
Rupert Sanders’ first feature film is Snow White and the Huntsman, which was released in the USA in early June 2012. The film’s budget was $170 million, including an eight-figure marketing expenditure, and it earned $20.3 million on its opening day in the USA. To date, the film has grossed $396,592,829 at the box office. Wooow!
Among other works, William Wheeler wrote the screenplay of Reluctant Fundamentalist (2012).
‘Ghost In The Shell’ is scheduled to be released in 2017, maybe on April 14th.
Scarlett Johansson will star in the lead role: “It’s happening. It will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February and it’s me and Rupert [Sanders]; and that’s all I know.”
But it is still unclear whether or not she is going to play manga/anime protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi.
Fanbase is already upset over the alleged “white-washing” of the Japanese material.
Producers: Avi Arad and Steven Paul.
