October 28, 2016  Abby 1 comment Ghost In The Shell

Scarlett is set to do her first Ghost In The Shell promo in Tokyo on November 13th at a Ghost In The Shell event with some of her co-stars.

Principal photography has wrapped on the live-action Ghost in the Shell film, and that means the cast are freed up for the inevitable press tour. First stop: Tokyo.

That’s the word from Anime Anime, who just announced that the Japanese capital will host a special Ghost in the Shell event November 13.

In attendance will be none other than the Major, Scarlett Johansson, joined by the film’s director, Rupert Sanders, and Takeshi Kitano, who plays the role of Aramaki.

The report from Anime Anime states that the event, whose location has not yet been revealed, may include new announcements, and that the number of attendees will be extremely limited.

Unless, of course, you can ghost-hack an attendee’s brain. Then you’re set.

The first look of Scarlett from her upcoming 2017 movie Ghost In The Shell has just been released. Scarlett will be playing Motoko Kusanagi or as she is known by major. The film is scheduled for a March 31, 2017 release date.

The #filmtwitter world is focused on France and the Cannes Film Festival announcement this morning, but there’s much more going on beyond the Croisette. Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures have announced that production has started on “Ghost In The Shell” starring Scarlett Johansson, and they’ve released the inaugural first look image from the movie.

Rupert Sanders (Snow White And the Huntsman) is directing the anime adaption, with lensing taking place in Wellington, New Zealand. Paramount Pictures will release the film in the U.S. on March 31, 2017. Press release details below.

The film, which is based on the famous Kodansha Comics manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow, is produced by Avi Arad (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 1 & 2, IRON MAN), Ari Arad (GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE), and Steven Paul (GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE). Michael Costigan (PROMETHEUS), Tetsu Fujimura (TEKKEN), Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, whose animation studio Production I.G produced the Japanese GHOST IN THE SHELL film and television series, and Jeffrey Silver (EDGE OF TOMORROW, 300) will executive produce.

Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, GHOST IN THE SHELL follows the Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.

“We are so pleased to be in Wellington to shoot ‘GHOST IN THE SHELL,’” said producers Avi Arad, Ari Arad, Michael Costigan and Jeffrey Silver. “The city boasts state-of-the-art production facilities and a rich urban landscape that make it an ideal setting for a sci-fi action film. The crew-base in New Zealand working on the film is first class, and working with Sir Richard Taylor and the team at Weta Workshop is inspirational on every level. The people of New Zealand have been terrific partners in helping us bring this story and its beloved characters to audiences around the world and we are thankful for their continued hospitality.”

Rupert Sanders’ live-action remake of the anime classic is a go

News about the controversial plans for a live-action remake of anime classic Ghost In The Shell has been thin on the ground of late. But with Scarlett Johansson does the press rounds for a little movie called Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the star of the planned project told Collider when the film will start shooting.

“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.”

Rupert Sanders is the director of Snow White And The Huntsman, and he’s working with producers Avi Arad and Steven Paul on the film which no doubt hopes to match the financial success of 2014’s Scarlett Johannsson action movie Lucy ($458 million worldwide).

The production rumbles on despite the understandable concerns of those who love Masamune Shirow’s original 1989 work, which spawned three manga editions, three films a TV series and several video games. Still, Ghost boasts a compelling story angle for the big screen: the focus is on Motoko Kusanagi (Johansson), a cyborg law enforcer and part of the member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission, which specialises in tackling technology-related crimes.

Live-action will be a tougher medium to work in than either the printed page or animation, but if James Cameron can find a way to shoot Avatar, it should be possible to make a good Ghost film. Assuming you can crack the story properly… And for more on that, and more on the original generally, be sure to read through our Ghost In The Shell crash course guide.

The Scarlett Johansson-headlined remake of Ghost In The Shell will arrive in April 2017.

This one appears to be happening. Disney – which distributes DreamWorks’ live action slate – has scheduled the film for a release of April 14th 2017, reports ERC. Scarlett Johansson is indeed attached to the project. Here’s our original story…

Although she’s yet to get a solo Marvel film of her own, Scarlett Johansson’s already proved she can open an action film by herself – Luc Besson’s completely bonkers sci-fi confection Lucy managed to make more than 10 times its $40m budget at the box office last year.

If the latest reports are correct, Johansson could be about to play a not dissimilar role in another sci-fi action film: DreamWorks’ live-action remake of Ghost In The Shell. The original anime feature, directed by Mamoru Oshii and based on Masamune Shirow’s manga, is a true classic, influencing numerous other writers and directors and spawning a TV series subtitled Stand Alone Complex.

According to Variety, Johansson has agreed to take the lead as Kusanagi, a cybernetic human who, in the original film, went on the trail of a hacker called the Puppet Master. Rupert Sanders, who previously made Snow White And The Huntsman, is set to direct, while screenwriter William Wheeler (The Reluctant Fundamentalist, The Hoax) is in charge of the script.

A project that has been discussed for some time (the last we heard, The Wolf Of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie was in talks to star), Ghost In The Shell may pick up a bit of speed with a star of Johansson’s magnitude attached.

I known there is a lot of hate out there right now for Scarlett getting this roll and I can get were it’s all coming from i can but at the end of the day they want the movie to do well and for that they need a big name and after “Lucy” Scarlett can pull in the money for them and thats all it comes down to “money” for the people making this movie. Most people will go to see it as it has Scarlett in and that is want they want.

Following the success of “Lucy,” Scarlett Johansson looks ready to take on another action pic, this one coming from the world of Japanese anime.

Johansson is set to star in DreamWorks’ adaptation of the popular anime pic “Ghost in the Shell.” Deadline Hollywood had reported that the actress had the offer to star but at the time she was still undecided about taking the role. Sources now say she has agreed to star in the pic.

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.

Rupert Sanders is on board to direct. Avi Arad and Steven Paul are producing the film from a script by Bill Wheeler. Mark Sourian is exec producing.

Insiders also tell Variety that Paramount has the option to come on as co-producer and financier and that decision is expected in the coming weeks.

DreamWorks principal Steven Spielberg is a huge fan of the original and has long wanted to get this film off the ground. A commitment from a star like Johansson should help in getting the pic greenlit for production.

Besides Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lawrence, Johansson is becoming one of the few actresses in town with the clout to get a project greenlit on her name alone.

“Lucy” made $394 million worldwide and Johansson can be seen next in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” bowing in May. Johansson has also done a nice job of balancing action-heavy tentpoles with serious dramas and comedies.

She received rave reviews for Spike Jonze’s “Her” and is a part of the ensemble of the Coen brothers’ next pic “Hail, Caesar!” She is repped by CAA and LBI Entertainment.
