Scarlett Johansson Says Ghost in the Shell Begins Shooting in 2016

By   /   2 years ago

Scarlett Johansson says that Ghost in the Shell from DreamWorks Studios will begin filming in 2016. As of now no other character is confirmed and the production process will start in the beginning of next year.

“It’s happening. It will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February and it’s me and Rupert [Sanders]; and that’s all I know.”

Rupert Sanders will be directing the movie, Johansson signed the contract with Sanders last January and believes that the filming will start next year.

For the past six years, the studios have been trying to develop a live action version of the manga property classic. Looks like finally it will get the fuel it needs to run.

So the original versions of Ghost in the Shell follows a branch of Japanese National Public Safety Comission called Section 9. This wing fights cybercrime and cyber terrorism in the future. Commander Motoko Kusanagi leads the whole wing, who has replaced her entire human body with one artificial intelligence piece.

Considering Kusanagi is the lead character in the anime, Johansson might be playing this role. Though we can’t confirm it as an official statement has not come out yet. This is a mere speculation.

Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson will release on 14 April 2017, as of now.
