Ghost in the Shell 3D Live Action

DreamWorks comes out on top, passing both Universal and Sony, for licensing rights to adapt Masamune Shirow's "Ghost in the Shell" cyber-police manga into a 3D live-action film. The story of an elite paramilitary unit in future Japan has already been adapted into three animated films and two television anime series.

DreamWorks has released the second animated Ghost in the Shell film, "Innocence," in North America. DreamWorks also released "Millennium Actress" and produced "Transformers," another live-action science-fiction film with Japanese roots. DreamWorks' co-founder Steven Spielberg expressed his enthusiasm for the project stating that "Ghost in the Shell is one of my favorite stories. It's a genre that has arrived, and we enthusiastically welcome it to DreamWorks." [Source: ANN]
