Ghost in the Shell Hollywood live action movie. A live-action version of Masamune Shirow’s acclaimed manga Ghost in the Shell has been in development at DreamWorks since 2008, when the studio acquired the rights at the behest of Steven Spielberg.
Since then, there’s been no movement on the movie. It was one of my most favorite Manga and Anime film. And just like Battle Angel Alita, it has been on the shelf for almost a decade, *read my rant here, James Cameron should give up the right to Battle Angle Alita. The live action take on Akira also have fallen by the wayside.
The latest news is that Snow White And The Huntsman’s director Rupert Sanders has signed on to direct the 3D live-action adaptation of the film. Sanders has been linked to a few different movies, and while he’s definitely on-board this one, it doesn’t necessarily mean that Ghost In The Shell will shoot next.
William Wheeler (“The Hoax”) is penning the script and it’s unknown at this time just how close they will stay to source material for the big-screen adaptation while Avi Arad (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will serve as producer.
