>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.
Oh crap. Please no.

Well this is going to suck.
I wonder why this is going to be terrible?
Incoming GiTS : Evolution
how did this happen. I made the same post literally seconds apart. Are you me OP? Anyway I can't delete the other one now.
>Ari Arad is the executive in charge of production of Hulk, co-producer of The Punisher and The Invincible Iron Man and executive producer of Ghost Rider, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Punisher: War Zone with his father Avi Arad.
At least you'll get cool mechanical bodies
Isn't this the jew involved in MGS5?
Oh shit noooooooooooooooooooooooo
MGS and Infamous films
I should be happy because it means more cyberpunk stuff is being made, but I'm not happy because it'll probably be shit, fuck up the source material or both
It is the guy Kojima went to and got Sutherland
>FBI Section 9
>dem cyberterrorist are looking for our digital burgers
Just a reminder. Akira and Cowboy Bebop got canned and both times people had invested just as much money into the project that would never be.
This may all just end up being nothing.
Ya I know Dragonball Evolution happened, but that was actually a popular series in the west. It had recognition. Go and ask somebody what GitS is.
G.I.T.S is pretty well known for the movie, not so much about the manga or SAC
Maybe in the late 80s or early 90s it was but I seriously doubt its something that clung to the collective minds of people who don't like anime.
It is not a big western property and no one but us and the Watchoski Brothers remember it.
All I'm saying is lets see if this actually goes somewhere before we gather up or pitchforks and torches. By the sounds of it, this project isn't even in pre-production. A lot of films die in this time.
Someone is actively killing scripts attached to anime related Hollywood films
You have a guardian angel in Hollywood, /a/. Be thankful.
Only one has been squeezed out so far, and if it fails no other films will be attempted.
