Dreamworks has moved the production of the upcoming live-action Ghost in the Shell film from Disney to Paramount, who will now be co-financing the movie. The film still stars Scarlett Joahnsson as Major Motoko Kusunagi, and Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is still directing the film based on the popular anime series.
They didn't state why they switched production, but it probably won't affect the film in a significant way.
The story follows the exploits of a member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime. I'm excited to see this film despite some fans who are against the decision to cast Johansson.
The film will hit theaters on March 31, 2017.
