"Ghost in the Shell" Hires "Snow White and the Huntsman" Director Rupert Sanders

"Ghost in the Shell" Hires "Snow White and the Huntsman" Director Rupert SandersSubmit Comment
We've been talking about DreamWorks' live-action adaptation of the "Ghost in the Shell" Japanese manga since 2009 when "Shutter Island" writer Laeta Kalogridis signed on provide the screenplay.

Since then, the script has been re-written by William Wheeler (Hoax) and remained a top priority at the request of Steven Spielberg. Today, the studio is happy to announce that it made a deal with "Snow White and the Huntsman" helmer Rupert Sanders to direct. The plan is to shoot in 3D.

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 video games.

The 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.

Ghost in the shell has a great story, but i don't agree with that director and shooting in 3D. will probably f*ck this up.

Snow white and the huntsman was sh*t. This movie is going to suck d*ck.

Snow White did kind of suck but it looked great. Ghost in the Shell has always been more about style than substance anyway so this director might fit better than you think.

Happy to hear this anime is finally getting a major Hwood makeover. With the right actress and vision it could be good.

Best case scenario they cast a pretty but untalented Eurasian for the female lead. Worst case, they cast Kristen Stewart.

Either way this sh*t will likely be a forgetful wasted opportunity for something that could have been thematically and visually creative.

I could think of a number of well known, more successful and more popular filmmakers who would be far worse for the job. Personally, I kinda though Joseph Kosinski was a dead ringer for this film.

In any event, if it sucks, it'll most likely be due to the script and lame, generic decisions enforced by the studio.

The only reason Sanders wants to direct is because he wants to bang an asian girl.

Unless they can get major money and good talent behind it, it'll be a huge let down to the fans of the anime and the public at large, probably, and I don't think the GIT will translate well outside the vehicle of anime anyway.

Hate me, but to me the only people who could direct this right are the Wachosky brothers.
