New animated Ghost in the Shell film!

Postby movieartman » Thu Apr 06, 2017 9:58 pm

Following the release & flop of America's live action Ghost in the Shell (2017) we have brewing...

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Japan-headquartered Production I.G. and publisher Kodansha are partnering to develop an animated reboot of “Ghost in the Shell,” based on the hit manga by Masamune Shirow. Production I.G. is responsible for the hit 1995 version of “Ghost in the Shell” that’s heralded as one of the best theatrically-released anime of all-time.

The film will reportedly be helmed by anime veterans Kenji Kamiyama (“Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex” series) and Shinji Aramaki (“Appleseed”). No writers or voice cast have been attached to the project at this time.


Very pleased to hear this. Haven't watched Arise yet but have been told it's the low point in the franchise besides the original Manga's own sequel. So hopefully this will bring things back to the quality of the directors Stand Alone Complex series (which I am currently making my way through and am enjoying a good deal)

Your thoughts/hopes?

We already have the original film, SAC, and Solid State Society. What can they possibly hope to add at this point?

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

New ideas, charecters, conflicts and situations?

Well, no, it's a reboot. That doesn't suggest new anything. To the extent the basic premise can be clarified or refined SAC already did it, so what can reasonably be added to it at this point in a reboot of the original story?

Speaking of reboots that can't possibly accomplish anything new... The graveyarded tangent is there precisely because of the "opinions (which are not subject to verification or falsification) being presented as facts" problem, and here you are going right back to it.
