    <-- Very skeptical


    I don't trust Hollywood to understand GitS beyond the look and feel of it, and I imagine they'll be attempting to clone the extremely pretentious animated movie rather than the original manga or the TV series.

    Sorry then. When someone mentions the show, and the "original 90s movie" (there was only one made in the 1990s) is mentioned in response to that, it does give the impression that the speaker believes the movie is the original.

    Anyway, we don't even know from the article which particular incarnation, if any, it will be based on. In fact:
    For that matter, most of the (incredibly short) article focuses mainly on the manga.

    oh, ok, I saw the title image from the movie and assumed that that was the incarnation they were referring to.

    It probably is, since that's the incarnation that's had the most influence on Hollywood, but we don't know that yet. On the other hand, I doubt they're going to directly remake an animated movie that was only done about ten years ago--at least not unless they were doing a live action version, which they're not. We'll probably get something different that tries to look and feel like the first movie, maybe borrowing a few extra things from the manga, like the fuchikoma.

    So basically, it's most likely going to suck?

    More than likely, but it would be nice of DreamWorks to prove me wrong.

    It would be interesting to see them do a version based solely on the manga, but with it being made by an American studio, I doubt it. I have a hard time understanding how they could even get the license now that I think about it. I mean, when it come to animation at least, Production I.G has been amazingly wonderful to the franchise. Innocence was a just plain beautiful movie (strictly talking animation), so why they would take a chance with an American studio kinda confuses me.

    What's the difference between a 3-D live action feature and just a live action feature?

    to quote the article...
    "plans to adapt the futuristic police thriller as a 3-D live-action feature"

    It just won't feel right to have a white woman running around as Motoko Kusanagi.

    Whoops! And right after I corrected someone else for not reading the article. For some reason, I was thinking 3-D computer animation. Well then, maybe it will be remake of the animated movie from the 1990s. Unfortunately, that will probably make it suck worse.

    I'll still go see it. I'm a sucker for 3-D movies.

    my friends and I are discussing this, dreading the epic suckage. here's the question we have, who do you get to play the Major?

    Will it be the Mamoru Oshii style of the first GITS and Innocence type movie?

    Or the Kenji Kamiyama Stand Alone Complex and Solid State Society type movie?

    Nevertheless. If they don't get Yoko Kanno for the OST I'll be disappointed.

    While I enjoyed the Oshii movies, I would much prefer the Kamiyama style. It would work better I think, even over the manga style as well, which I just can't see translating to a live-action movie.

    Also saw this from the article:
    I IMDB'd Ari Arad, and his production credits include The 2003 Hulk movie, Blade the series, and The 2004 Punisher movie. Does not bode well....
    :( 

    *edit*
    Apparently he also produced the 3 Spiderman films, the X-Men movies, and the Fantastic 4 movies, so its not AS BAD as i thought...

    Well I hate shitty signatures, so I guess we'll have to live with it.
