Kodansha an Production I.G announced on Friday that a new anime based on Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell manga has been green-lit. Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) are co-directing the anime. The format and release date have not yet been announced.

Production I.G previously produced Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence films in 1995 and 2004, respectively, as well as the 2002 Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex television anime and its TV sequel, OVAs, and film. In 2013, Production I.G adapted the material into the Ghost in the Shell Arise prequel OVA, which it later remixed into a television series. Most recently, the studio debuted Ghost In The Shell: The New Movie in 2015 and the Ghost in the Shell VR Diver smartphone video in 2017.

Cool. Just started Stand Alone Complex. Hope to be caught up in the (animated) franchise by the release of this.

Woo! I am looking forward to this big time. I don't want the live action movie to bomb, but Hollyweird just doesn't have the talent to do a decent adaptation without completely remaking it. For example: The Seven Samurai to The Magnificent Seven.

I am so sorry giving you more bad news / I am just the messenger


Deadline: Ghost in the Shell Film Will Lose At Least US$60 Million

Entertainment news website Deadline reported on Wednesday that Paramount Pictures' live-action Ghost in the Shell film is tracking with a US$60 million loss.

While the movie's stated budget is US$110 million, Deadline said some sources claim the actual cost to make the film was in more the US$180 million range. Deadline said that its estimate of a US$60 million loss is based on an estimated total earnings of US$200 million for the film (US$50 million domestically and US$150 million internationally), with a combined P&A (print & advertising) and production cost of the film being around US$250 million.

It's okay. I just didn't want the live action movie to hurt the franchise. I was never going to watch the movie unless forced to do so. I'm sorry Miss Johansen (sp?) is no Major.

Suppose we'll see what they do with it but I'm sure when the first designs and clips come out nobody will be happy as usual lol. People always just want what they had previously instead of new things, When the first movie came out it was so different from the manga in look and feel then Stand Alone Complex kinda mixes the deep philosophical stuff with the comedy and character design of the manga so people didn't really like the Major's character design at first and the same for Arise because she looked different. No matter what everyone here is going to whine lol.

Love Stand Alone Complex but that character design is so anime with red eyes and giant boobs. Think I prefer the realistic designs of the earlier movies. I guess right now we don't know what it will be it could just be a remake of the movie or something. I hope for a full on 24 episode show that does something new and doesn't just retell the same stories.
