Kise Kazuchika Directing GHOST IN THE SHELL: ARISE
Twitch is reporting that development on a third anime film based on the Ghost In The Shell manga is on it's way. The film entitled Ghost In The Shell: Arise will be directed by Kise Kazuchika (Blood: The Last Vampire, Neon Genesis Evangelion). Details are unknown at this point but it's title could be a speculative clue. It's possible Arise could mean the resurrection of the Major or even a cyborg uprising. There had been a live-action film in development-limbo over at Dreamworks with producer Steven Spielberg attached. That project has a script written by Jamie Moss only to be replaced with Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Avatar) but hasn't been mentioned in a very long time.
