Scarlett Johansson Confirms Live-Action Ghost in the Shell Begins Filming in Early 2016

Masamune Shirow’s 1989 anime classic, Ghost in the Shell, is getting the live-action remake treatment. Directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) with Scarlett Johansson in the lead portraying Motoko Kusanagi.

“It’s happening. It will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February and it’s me and Rupert [Sanders]; and that’s all I know,” said Johansson in an interview with Steve Weintraub of Collider.

Ghost in the Shell is set to release April 14, 2017.

Expect ranting and raving from angry fans (including myself) very soon. There is even a petition with almost 48,000 electronic signatures to get Johansson removed from the film.
