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.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
