With Scarlett Johansson now announced to be headlining DreamWorks’ live-action GHOST IN THE SHELL movie, the studio has gone ahead and announced a release date for the adaptation. To be directed by SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN’s Rupert Sanders, GHOST IN THE SHELL will be released on April 14th, 2017.

This live-action adaptation of the classic anime and manga series has been in development for a while now, although it was only in the last few weeks that Johansson was finally revealed to have signed on. Avi Arad and Steven Paul are on board as producers, with Steven Spielberg also involved in the project. The futuristic thrill-ride could be stunning if handled correctly, especially given the latest modern technology that would be available to create such a world. The original 1989 feature from Masmune Shirow, about a bizarre and complex future that see an ops unit tackling technology-related crime, has spawned multiple animated series, films and comic books over the years, gaining a huge cult following.

Expect more on this as it develops.
