Rupert Sanders to Helm GHOST IN THE SHELL Remake

By Amirose Eisenbach January 28, 2014

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.
