Its old news but according to IGN & Wiki

"Production I.G., the animation studio behind the most recent Ghost in the Shell film and TV series, has obtained live-action movie rights from publisher Kodansha, creators of the original Ghost in the Shell manga."

This is good news for me since I really enjoyed the series and movies. I just want to know if it is going to be made in Japan or Hollywood although Production I.G is a japanese production company. Still either one I am actually fine with because Hollywood is great with sci-fi its romance they suck at (my sassy girl remake....damn you hollywood) I would just be worried about who they would cast. And since we are on casting, who would you cast for the lead roles in the American version or who would you cast in the Japanese version?

I think a film of this could possibly be a huge success especially if made in the states since we seem to love Sci-Fi with martial arts mix films. Like I said though the only problem would be the casting selection because that can always damage a movie. With today’s advancement in CGI effects and the success it’s had in the states this could possibly draw in a new crowd not even familiar with the manga or series.

Yeah, ghost in the shell was a massive hit over here and its very "matrix" like. I'm thinking it would go fine in the states if done right... so many remakes to live action are done wrong. Ghost in the shell has a good storyline though, even if it followed a classic murder like detective case but adapted to the ghost in the shell storyline, it would probably seem interesting. Having some gay expensive holywood actor (ROFL LINDSY LOHAN) as the major would also kill it.

I have to say, I've only seen a few live-action shows form Japan. GTO was OK. Cutey Honey and ESPECIALLY Devil Man were terrible! So, I'd definitely want better quality than those clunkers!

Yeah GTO wasn't bad, but it pretty much required no props or special effects.

Ghost in the Shell would make a good live action if done right......just hope they find good actors for the members of section 9....
