Screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis has been hired by Steven Spielberg’s Dreamworks to pen a script for the upcoming live-action 3D movie adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. And she’s been talking about her take on the famous manga:
So she’s thinking about writing a trilogy? Well I hope she will manage to convince the execs at Dreeamworks because I strongly agree with her when she says that there is a lot to develop with Ghost in the shell! The universe created by Masamune Shirow is damn huge and would definitely deserve to become a movie franchise.
Here’s the movie trailer of Ghost in the Shell, the animated movie:
GHOST IN THE SHELL
“A female cyborg cop and her partner hunt a mysterious and powerful hacker called the Puppet Master.”
I was blown away by the Ghost in the Shell animated movie at the time, so I wait with impatience for Dreamworks’ live action 3D adaptation and have high expectations!
