So they’re going to make Ghost in the Shell into a live-action film.
I’m a HUGE Masamune Shirow fan, and of course I’ve already had my quality film adaptations. The 2004 Appleseed Film was AMAZING! And I really enjoyed the first Season of Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex.
Still the idea of it being live action is interesting…then I saw the trailer.
So disappointing, as much of the trailer appears to be of shot-to-shot remakes of scenes from the 1995 film which took great liberties of the source materiel to great determine in my opinion.
Also given the idea that this is a copy of an adaptation, rather than a fresh adaption, it likely means this will be a tired plot-line with a HUGE special effects budget.
Allegedly they are trying to do a live-action AKIRA film, I can only imagine that Opus being even harder to translate to live-action, especially a Hollywood remake…
