It seems that Hollywood live action adaptations of cult anime classics 'Akira' and 'Ghost In The Shell' have been stuck in development hell for years now.. because they have. Well, at least for the latter, it seems the train is moving forward.
According to reports today, Dreamworks Pictures have offered the title role to Scarlett Johansson, who has proved her action skills in the 'The Avengers', 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'Lucy'. Rupert Sanders, who helmed 2012's 'Snow White and the Huntsman' is on board for directorial duties. Marvel honcho Ari Arad is producing.
'Ghost In The Shell' currently doesn't have a release date, but would be expected to be 2017 at the earliest.
