Now, during her promotion of Shutter Island, several outlets have asked for an update. “I’m writing ‘Ghost in the Shell’ for DreamWorks for Steven Spielberg,” she said. “This is an adaptation of the original manga, the original comic book that sort of began everything.” Kalogridis added: “[The movie will have] a lot of action. Lots of action. There’s still going to be a lot of atmosphere – it is about vast possibilities – all of this technology, the Internet – it’s about the limitless possibilities of this technology.

Created by Masamune Shirow, Ghost in the Shell was first published in 1989. It went on to generate two more manga editions, three anime film adaptations and an anime TV series and several video games. The second anime film, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence was released in the US by DreamWorks in 2004.
