>EXCLUSIVE: DreamWorks has made a deal with Snow White And The Huntsman helmer Rupert Sanders to direct Ghost In The Shell, a live-action film based on the Japanese manga futuristic police thriller that has a new script from William Wheeler. The film is being produced by Avi Arad, Ari Arad and Steven Paul. Fueled by the personal passion of Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks acquired the project several years ago with ambitious plans to shoot it in 3D.

Checked the catalog didn't see a thread up. Looking forward to this. Hopefully they don't change the setting too much,

Hollywood is in the middle of an existential crisis.

This could be good if they go the spinoff route, rather than the adaptation route.

Picture this, a spinoff GitS film, same universe, but covering different events in a different country, from a different perspective. The world order is very different in GitS than it is in reality, there was a third worlds war, etc. It could go into more detail on that, using original characters, but retaining the thematics.

But unfortunately that would require it to be more than a quick cash-in, so it's unlikely.

Hollywood has created it's own problems aswell. It has released uninspired, insipid bollocks for decades. The whole experience of attending a cinema has become diluted with the arrival of large multiplexes and the closure of smaller local cinemas. My old local cinema was a beautiful grand art deco building. You were attended to by stewards in uniform. Even if the film was shit, attending the cinema was a pleasure. It was closed and replaced with a huge out of town complex. I haven't been to see a film on over fifteen years.

Can't, there are already 4 separate GitS universes. If they make live action it would just be the 5th universe. GitS changes every so often. But that's how it stays up to date.

Those early attempts was during the Anime Economic Bubble. They thought that the films would print money. Then the bubble burst.
>>
You people talk like the GitS manga was something clever or serious. Shirow just threw some tired cyberpunk cliche stories together and put a sexy fembot who fucks computers on top without even bothering to give her a particular personality.

He's a hack easily on par with whoever directed the Snow White film. Now, the GitS animated movie was more coherent, though still simplistic. SAC and the following movies were painfully genre, which is what the segment of Hollywood that's taken the rights quite excels at.

It's not going to "ruin" anything, at worst it will be a shitty movie.

Why does anyone have this thought process? That if a bad adaptation occurs, the source is "ruined" by it's existence. The only way this could happen is if the adaptation is treated as canon to the source.

Why doesn't hollywood realize the reason people like anime is because it's ANIMATED? Yes, there's particular anime franchises that are popular due to story but underneath that is the notion that people like seeing this stories animated.

Read this:
>Classic cyberpunk characters were marginalized, alienated loners who lived on the edge of society in generally dystopic futures where daily life was impacted by rapid technological change, an ubiquitous datasphere of computerized information, and invasive modification of the human body.[2]

Then this:
Many writers who grew up reading in the 1980s are just now starting to have their stories and novels published. To them cyberpunk was not a revolution or alien philosophy invading science fiction, but rather just another flavor of science fiction. Like the writers of the 1970s and 80s who assimilated the New Wave's classics and stylistic techniques without necessarily knowing or even caring about the manifestos and ideologies that birthed them, today's new writers might very well have read Neuromancer back to back with Asimov's Foundation, John Brunner's Stand on Zanzibar, and Larry Niven's Ringworld and seen not discontinuities but a continuum.[2]
>>
>>100898931
Its not about rising up to fight 'the man' no more.
>>
>>100898931
Cyberpunk, is about fighting "the man", the oppressor. This is why it was called cyberPUNK. Post-cyberpunk, was what happened when people borrowed the ideas, but not the ideology of cyberpunk. So while many of the same things might be present in both, a post-cyberpunk story does not have that punk ideology at it's core.

>>100899334
>Director put out this before and the recent-ish snow white movie. Might turn out alright?
You think they might make Batou the main character? Because it is easier to sell a white American as the main lead in Hollywood. I don't see them having Motoko being the protagonist working out.
>>
>>100899469
They could make Togusa the main character, which I would actually be kind of okay with.
>>
>>100899469
Eh? If anything, Togusa would be the go-to guy to be our protagonist. The fact that he's got the least amount of cyber upgrades helps put him near the "everyman" persona that Hollywood loves in a lead coming into an established fantasy or sci-fi world.
Still, the protagonist SHOULD be the Major, but I can see Hollywood turning her into a mysterious enigma figure to be admired from a distance.
>>
>>100898931
>>100899155
Section 9 takes down corrupt corporations, politicians and fight with other government agencies. The manga's world is way more Cyberpunk with child slave workhouses and old people thrown out with the garbage and it appeared way before post-cyberpunk was even coined and while Cyberpunk was still pretty new.
>>
>>100899469
Why? They made the Tomb Raider movie without turning Lara Croft into a dude or shifting protagonist duty to some other character.

The major is a brain with a cell, which means in practise any race you want her to be with minimal justification.

The main point is that if the Major is the Hollywood lead, she would no longer be Japanese by necessity. I would rather that she has as few changes as possible, which can only happen if she is not the main lead.

Pazu is ethnically Japanese, and not fully prosthetic, so he'd look pretty odd. Saito on the other hand is vaguely shown to be from somewhere in the middle east, and his accent could easily be handwaved by claiming he was educated in England like so many are.

Sorry about that, I stand corrected. I think the Western audience would still draw comparisons, though.

Because the industry and audience for the most part avoid ever casting any ethnic minorities except in token roles. Contrary to what some of the shitposters are saying, it's a business run by conservative Caucasians.

They will never get past that notion, animation is for kids period, which is kinda weird considering all the crap they show on Family Guy and The Simpsons.

Also, money and blowjobs from desperate fresh faced "actresses".

No it wasn't made in Japan, but was meant to be done in an anime style.

Yes, there's a hilariously bad North Star live action movie, starring Sean Penn's brother Chris as Jagi.

Jew TV is in a slump now as well. They can squeeze procedural crime drama for so long. Who knows how long until something like the Wire and Breaking Bad comes around?

And live action adaptation is a horrific idea. I don't know when American media has shunned animation so completely but it's a shame considering animation for the most part is an American invention. The Jew acting guilds probably felt the need to assert itself.

Love how everyone says Hollywood is flopping but from year to year now movies either almost or reach over a billion dollars more often now.

As long as they go with what I.G has built and not the shitty manga I will be fine.

They make money but they are sorta shallow creatively. Them making a mockery of foreign and animation fare shows the live actor favoritism too.
