DreamWorks to make 'Ghost' in 3-D
show user profile  Sypher-5
DreamWorks has acquired rights to the Japanese manga "Ghost in the Shell" with plans to adapt the futuristic police thriller as a 3-D live-action feature.

Story follows the exploits of a member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime.

Created by Masamune Shirow, "Ghost in the Shell" was first published in 1989. It went on to generate two additional manga editions, three anime film adaptations, an anime TV series and three videogames. The second anime film, "Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence," was released in the U.S. by DreamWorks in 2004.

It may actually be enjoyable if yo'u'e able to not judge it entirely based on how it compares to everything that's gone before it.

But for fans that's near impossible, so I don't really see this being a wise move. (who am I kidding, it'll be a hit with the casual/mainstream audience who've never seen/read the original anime/manga)

I for one am looking forward to this. There's nothing intrinsic to GITS that needs to be hand-drawn, and its generally grounded in reality enough that live-action is a better choice than entirely CGI.
I wonder if they'll cast Asian actors or Americans?

I doubt the "American Empire" will be in it,and it'll be dumbed down to hell. The "evil" western world will be removed. The thing with the stories is each time you see them you find something new, something that sparks a thought. Fantastic 4 made me dumber, along with the other movies mentioned. They spent their budget on special effects instead of writers with an imagination.

You might not be a bad idea..Spielberg in his old age has been trying in his last few movies to get kinda more into the story as opposed to showing off.

But i dont know much about the Ghost in the shell series Beyond the basic story line and havent kept up with it in the last year or two and i am not a HUGE FAN BOY. But when the movie came out a few years ago i was all over it and loved it. Infact it was the first DVD i bought for my first dvd player back then.

But then again it was really Noir and i don't know how in the hell they'll pull that off because ive never seen the like from Mr. Spielberg. But Robert Rodriguez pulled it off extremely well with Sin city IMO so...who knows, maybe

I consider the remake of Dawn of the Dead superior to the original.

But I'm probably the only person in the world who thinks that.

NO Jollabollathan I believe that as well..and Romero in his old age has gotten much much better in his vision IMO..Diary of the dead was great in my eyes as well. And city of the dead ansewred a few questions i had about the human race in his view of things.
