The American film production company Dreamworks has signed up Rupert Sanders ("Snow White and the Huntsman") to direct its planned live-action film adaptation of Masamune Shirow's "Ghost in the Shell" cyber-police manga. William Wheeler ("Hoax", "The Reluctant Fundamentalist") has written a new script for the project.
Jamie Moss ("Street Kings", "Last Man Home") was originally signed to script the film when Dreamworks announced its license in 2008. Dreamworks hired Shutter Island writer and executive producer Laeta Kalogridis to draft the film in 2009. She wrote in March 2010 that she would "turn in a draft in a few weeks". Kalogridis also reiterated in 2010 that her script for the live-action film would be based on Shirow's original manga and not Production I.G and Mamoru Oshii's animated movie adaptation.
Не, ну я понимаю: делать по мувикам бесполезно, Вачовски и так их ободрали; но делать "SAC"... хм...
Короче, они всё испортят в очередной раз. Одна надежда - а вдруг им денег не дадут?
