Director Rupert Sanders‘ live action take on the classic anime Ghost in the Shell will be released a little earlier than expected.
Scarlett Johansson takes on the lead role in the adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s iconic cyberpunk manga series, the story of which follows members of a covert ops unit that take on technology-related crime. Ghost in the Shell was famously adapted into an anime feature back in 1995, and it seems fans are split on their excitement for the movie.
Sanders will direct the film from a script written by William Wheeler with Avi Arad with Steven Paul producing along with Steven Spielberg.
Disney and DreamWorks have announced that the release date of the film has moved from April 14th, 2017 to March 31st, 2017.
