Ghost in the Shell Featurette – Section 9

Scarlett Johansson, “Beat” Takeshi Kitano, Michael Carmen Pitt, Pilou Asbaek, Chin Han and Juliette Binoche star for director Rupert Sanders in the highly anticipated live action remake of revered anime classic Ghost in the Shell.  The Japanese release of the film will be dubbed by the original voice cast of the cartoon and, given it’s the 25th anniversary of its debut, what a great way to honour it.

Synopsis: In the near future, Major (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind:  A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals.    When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it.   As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to:  her life was not saved, it was stolen.   She will stop at nothing to recover her past, find out who did this to her and stop them before they do it to others.   Based on the internationally acclaimed Japanese Manga, “The Ghost in the Shell.”
