New Ghost in The Shell Behind the Scenes Released

“Come 2017, Hollywood veteran Scarlett Johansson will be headlining Paramount’s lavish Ghost in the Shell movie as The Major, an elite cyborg enforcer who spearheads a task force known as Section 9,” writes Michael Briers for WeGotThisCovered. Ghost in the Shell was partially filmed in Wellington and is “earmarked for US release on March 31, 2017”.

Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, Kaori Momoi, Rila Fukushima, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tuwanda Manyimo will be starring alongside Scarlett Johansson.

The teaser provided by Entertainment Tonight is designed to “take you behind the scenes of Ghost in the Shell” and shows “Johansson and Co. engage in a pre-CG firefight on the streets of Wellington, New Zealand – acting as a stand-in for the futuristic cityscape of Masamune Shirow’s cyberpunk saga.”

“Tapping into Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig, the creative team behind Paramount’s live-action movie have continually stressed that the 2017 tentpole will remain faithful to the source material,” as reported in the article.
