Live Action <em>Ghost In The Shell </em> Movie Update

The movies script writer Laeta Lalogridis talks a little about the direction the live action version of the Sci-Fi Manga is taking...

Its been over 2 years since Stephen Spielberg was announced as the man to bring the popular Manga/Anime Ghost In The Shell to the screen. Since then, we have found out that Shutter Island writer (and Avatar executive producer) Laeta Kalogridis would be writing the script for Spielberg. While out promoting the release of Shutter Island, MoviesOnline caught up with Kalogridis and asked her about the latest on the adaptation...



The main question they ask(for Ghost In The Shell fans anyway) is whether the upcoming movie would be an adaptation of the Anime, or the original Manga...

"Ghost In The Shell was originally the manga. The anime came from the original graphic novel and then — and that anime, as you know, is a relatively famous, groundbreaking piece of material — also generated two seasons of an animated television show as well. And this is an adaptation of the original manga, the original comic book that sort of began everything."

She also says..

"[It has] a lot of action… lots of action. There's still going to be a lot of atmosphere – [the movie] is about vast possibilities – all of this technology, the internet – it's about the limitless possibilities of this technology."

I have never read the comic, but was a big fan of the first Anime so lets hope this gets beyond the pre-production stage and gets made! These live action Manga/Anime adaps have a tendency to just drop off the radar.
