DreamWorks To Make a 3D Live-Action Movie Adaptation Of “Ghost In The Shell”

April 15, 2008


The American film production company DreamWorks has revealed that it has licensed the 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.

Variety reports that Universal and Sony also negotiated for the rights, which the Production I.G anime studio was pitching for the manga’s original publisher Kodansha. What turned the dealmaking in DreamWorks’ favor was co-founder Steven Spielberg‘s enthusiasm for the project. The entertainment trade newspaper quotes the acclaimed director and producer:

“Ghost in the Shell is one of my favorite stories. It’s a genre that has arrived, and we enthusiastically welcome it to DreamWorks.”

Avi Arad (formerly of Marvel Studios as well as of the Spider-Man and X-Men movie franchises), Arad’s son Ari, and Seaside Entertainment‘s Steven Paul brought the project to DreamWorks and will produce. Jamie Moss (Street Kings, Last Man Home) has been assigned to script the project.
