It was announced a few months ago that Leonardo DiCaprio would be adapting one of the most famous pieces of anime film, ‘Akira.’ Now, one of Hollywood’s biggest players, Steven Spielberg, is following suit, having snatched up the rights to another Japanese anime classic. Dreamworks will be adapting ‘Ghost in the Shell,’ with Jamie Moss set to adapt the story into the screenplay. The current plan for the film will be a live-action, 3-D take on the animated story.
No word yet on whether Spielberg will be involved with the picture as director. Avi Arad, Ari Arad and Steven Paul have been listed as the producers.
