Ghost in the Shell Live-Action Film To Begin Shooting In Early 2016


During a press junket for Avengers: Age of Ultron, actress Scarlett Johansson shared that the live-action Ghost in the Shell film is scheduled to begin shooting in early 2016.


“It’s happening. It will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February and it’s me and Rupert [Sanders]; and that’s all I know,” Johansson, who is playing the lead role in the film, said to Collidor.


Sanders, who Johansson refers to in her quote, will be directing Ghost in the Shell. Sanders doesn’t have much to his name yet, outside of the Snow White and the Huntsman movie, which was his first feature film.


Dreamworks are in charge of producing the Ghost in the Shell movie. Disney, who are handling marketing for the film, recently announced that they aim to launch the film on April 14th, 2017.
