Moviepilot.com broke a story today through Facebook about a new Ghost in the Shell series starting on July 23, 2013. It is set in the past, before the events in the first two television shows. The technology will be more crude, with her and Batto communicating verbally instead of inside their heads. And the Chief won’t have pointed gray hair!!
I’m not sure how I feel about this especially with Spielberg wanting to make a live action version. Will the remove the angst that made the Major in the later movies and series’? I kind of hope they do because I for one didn’t like the way they sent the character. They create a kick ass woman warrior and then make her have more drama than a high school student?? That’s not a good recipe for success in my opinion.
I’m willing to give it a chance and see where it goes.
