Production I.G. has begun negations with Hollywood studios to produce a live action Ghost in the Shell.
Ghost in the Shell is a popular manga that has been made into an animated series and three movies. It is a futuristic cyberpunk thriller which explores the ethical and philosophical questions surrounding the widespread merging of humanity with technology.
Very few anime or manga series have been successfully made into live action films; if this project is successful, it will be interesting to see what other properties might be produced as well. However, there's a very long road between negotiations and a quality movie.
