Will the madness never end? Every time you turn around these days another film is going 3-D, can't you guys work on making an immersive cyberspace experience first? Anyways, news is that while a couple other studios were chasing Ghost in the Shell, Spielberg himself took an interest in the property and brought it to Dreamworks. Jamie Moss, who hasn't done much of anything except write Street Kings is set to pen the adaptation. "The story is set in the year 2029. The world has become intensively information oriented and humans are well-connected to the network. Crime has developed into a sophisticated stage by hacking into the interactive network. To prevent this, Section 9 is formed. These are cyborgs with incredible strengths and abilities that can access any network on Earth." I have to say, I'm not a Spielberg fan and I'm wondering what they're going to do with this, make it a big budget hollywood blockbuster like ID4 we're all going to hate? I hope they tread lightly, Ghost in the Shell is one of the only anime things I actually like.

Do you think that Dreamworks is planning to go head to head with Cameron's similarly themed Battle Angel (also in 3D)? Word is he's still doing it.

I didn't really like Ghost in the shell all that much, besides the opening and closing scenes. Ghost in the Shell II was even worse. Seemed hollow somehow, and way less action than I was expecting. What has happened to some of the other anime titles that have been rumoured to be turned into live action films like Akira and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Those would be some costly movies to make.

I wonder which storyline this will follow, the manga, original theatrical movies (GiTS and GiTS:Innocence) or the Stand Alone Complex (two seasons and another movie)

Personally, I hope it's the Stand Alone Complex story arc.

As much as I hope it will be respectful to the original theatrical film I imagine that, when it's finally done, it will resemble the source material in name alone and be only an amalgamation of various characters and story points.

Seriously people, give Spielberg a chance. Who knows, it may turn out good. =/ I'd say it's better than nothing at all. At least someone is stepping to the plate and will hopefully be closely watched when making it.

I hope they go with a dark story line. Not a 'happy we got the bad guy' and the movie is over type of story. Motoko is not mainstream, but she is very complex.

Ya guys it's is the best of the best in Japan SI-FI but what if it's happening already. Lets say that there is a way for this sort of thing to happen to you or just about anyone how would you feel how would you act to others. Just a question just a thought or maybe it's the real deal think about it talk about it!
