    Default Ghost In the Shell Movie

    I was just cruising the net and came across a few blurbs about a GITS live action movie. Apparently the rights have been sold.

    My thoughts are this : If done well - this movie could be amazing. If they kept it very dark - and to script, it would be amazing.
    I could picture the atmosphere of " Underworld " ( the 1st movie - and actually I could actually picture Kate Beckinsale playing a convincing Motoko Kusnagi.

    I sit patiently

    I'd even accept a third GITS movie.
    I live GITS SAC - but it doesn't have quite the same bite as the two movies do.

    I've always thought Ghost In The Shell really had potential for a live action movie. I also can picture Kate Beckinsale as Major, she'd be perfect for the role IMO.

    I would have hoped this would be done in Japan with Oshii Mamoru as director D:

    But I'll be eagerly awaiting with an open mind. Now the only thing missing is a third run of SAC...

    Ghost in the Shell live action... meh I seriously hope not as for Kate, I don't want Hollywood or even America to touch anime and make them into live actions, butchering even more.

    By the way doesnt GITS: Solid State Society count as a third movie or was that an OVA?

    Manmachine Interface and Manmachine Interface II was better than Stand Alone Complex.

    Well hopefully they will make a GITS movie that is with live actors/actresses. That'll be great. Surely, for an anime fan or perfect for the original franchises who never really thought of watching anime will hopefully consider watching the real anime series of GITS, and regarding too the movie, there will be new seasons for oncoming DVDs. Well that's just me though. Problem is..Who is going to be playing the real major actors, like Aramaki, Major Motoko, and Batou? I don't see it. Unless the do some computer animation technique.

    Well would it be an American or Japanese made movie? Either way true fans are going to be upset after seeing it I can tell...just look at the crazed fanboys and girls who bashed the PoT live action movie to death..what a shame I found it to be hilarious. If this movie comes to fruition they might as well put it right at the end of a commercial for the movie "If you know everything about Ghost In The Shell PLEASE do NOT see this movie. We don't want this to be harshly rated like the DBZ live action will be"

    Well - normally I would agree that they would butcher it - but I would hope they would have Mamoru Oshii as a director - or intensely involved...

    I have faith that this could be done correctly - and my idea of correctly would be COPYING the anime, pretty much frame per frame

    And I also feel Kate IS clearly perfect.

    Hollywood/ America has already ruined Resident Evil and many other great gaming titles, and apparently they are about to ruin Akira too.

    Another classic anime that shouldn't be tampered with. v.v Hollywood really sucks at turning anime into live-action films. So they should just quit trying and not even bother with it; becasue if it fails miserably: it ruins the entire perspective, image, and reputation of the original concept.

    Unless that is, if the creators of the original The Matrix collaborated with Shirow Masamune (artist and creator of the original GITS manga) and Mamoru Oshii (director for the first two GITS animated films), then I think there might be a pretty good shot. Though, I think it would be really cool if Ghost In The Shell were turned into an awesome computer-animated film, like Final Fantasy VII Advent Children or Appleseed Ex Machina.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. The original creators of the matrix actually cited anime as some of their inspiration...

    I think if anyone one could do it - they could -

    but just for the record, for this to be done right - they would need Shirow Masamune - and Mamoru Oshii

    They would would also need to try and make a carbon copy - but live action - none of the poetic licencing where they would make everyone look different and take a whole new twist.. ( IE - the HE-MAN movie - which was my first hollywood let-down :P )

    I second that opinion. Look what they did to Speed Racer. They have the tendency to dumb things down, as if they feel the audience isn't intelligent enough to get anything unless it's served to them on a silver platter. I shudder to think of what they could do to GitS. Remove all the philosophical elements? Turn it into another silly action movie? (Not that I mind silly action movies, I quite like them, but STILL...)
