The current Ghost in the Shell live action film, starring Scarlett Johansson, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbaek, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche, is NOT doing well in theaters. The film is on track to earn $50 million domestically and $150 million internationally for a combined take of $200 million. Ouch.
On a happier note, Kodansha and Production I.G have announced they are working on a new animated Ghost in the Shell film! The project will be co-directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series) and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed). No writers or voice cast have been announced… stay tuned, kids….
