Movie: Ghost in the Shell (live-action)

From Variety...

Spielberg fights for rights to Japanese thriller

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.

Avi Arad, Ari Arad and Steven Paul of Seaside Entertainment are attached to produce and brought the project to the studio. Jamie Moss has been tapped to pen the adaptation.

Universal and Sony were also chasing "Ghost in the Shell," but Steven Spielberg took personal interest in the property and made it happen at DreamWorks.

" 'Ghost in the Shell' is one of my favorite stories," Spielberg said. "It's a genre that has arrived, and we enthusiastically welcome it to DreamWorks."

DreamWorks prexy of production Adam Goodman said "Ghost in the Shell" is a property "that epitomizes 3-D live-action motion picture possibilities."

Avi Arad is at the forefront of comicbook-based material, having produced the three "Spider-Man" films, the three "X-Men" movies, the two "Fantastic Four" picss and the upcoming "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk."

Moss' writing credits include "Street Kings," which bowed Friday, and "Last Man Home," in development at Universal.

Yes, there was an ANIMATED movie...it was before the Standalone Complex series however, which is what I think you're referring to.

LIVE-ACTION, you dingis. LIVE-ACTION. Read the title.

Been a very long time since I'd seen the animated movie & don't remember much. But, this looks good.

Saw this last night. I wasn't expecting much when I went in, but I really liked this one. I never watched the original anime, but this is had very anime feeling tone, mixed with Iron (sound track kinda reminded me of that) and it just works.

Not sure how much into anime you are...but, even if you aren't, the original GiTS "cartoon" is worth checking out.

Fantastic artwork.

I never got much into it. Ninja Scroll, Appleseed, and I think Bubblegum Crisis? I knew about GITS obviously, just never watched it.

None of this including the Americanized Voltron and Robotech, of course.
