For years now, DreamWorks Studios has been trying to get their live action version of the classic animated film "Ghost in the Shell" off the ground and now it looks like it may actually come to fruition. It's been reported that "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders will direct the film. While some did not like the dark rendition of the classic fairytale, it was certainly regarded as a stylistic entry with very cool visual effects.

Sanders currently has four other projects in development including the narcotics enforcement thriller "90 Church" being distributed by Universal and a picture on the short man with the might complex "Napoleon", over at Warner Bros.

For those less familiar with the subject, "Ghost in the Shell" started out as a manga before becoming a highly respected anime starting with the 1995 original movie. Sanders version will be the first live-action adaptation.

William Wheeler ("The Hoax") is penning the script and it's unknown at this time just how close they will stay to source material for the big-screen adaptation. Steven Spielberg will most likely serve as an executive producer in the end, as his passion for the material is one of the main reasons DreamWorks decided to pick up the project.

    Guys... Just be glad John and company put the Miyazaki films in there in the first place. Clearly there are people in the world who do know what they're talking about when it comes to film that agree with you that these movies are, in fact, great. So consider it an honor you had a fighting chance thanks to those who comprised the list. But, at the end of all things, anime fans lost this battle. But that's ok, because you know what you love and that's all that really matters. You got some recognition and praise. Don't tarnish it by being a sore loser. Honor your victor and walk away gracefully. That's what I intend to do. Just for the record I voted for most of the anime movies not because they're anime, but because I think they're overall better than what they were pitted against. Personally, (all film is subjective) I can't believe Pinnochio won. What I am excited to see is who wins... Toy Story or Incredibles. My bet is Toy Story, though that's not necessarily my vote. Final Matchup will be Lion King vs Frozen

    I took my 2 daughters to see Home this past weekend and we loved it! My 4yr old doesn't ever sit through a entire movie and this time she didn't even ask to get up. I would love to win this umbrella just for her, she would be so happy and has always had a love for umbrellas.
