With Age of Ultron hitting theaters on May 1, news outlets are starting to turn their attention toward Scarlett Johansson’s next big project.
News site Collider recently reached out to Johansson, seeking comment on the live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. ScarJo responded, stating that “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.”
Dreamworks has been working on a live-action adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s Ghost in the Shell for nearly six years. In January, news arose that Scarlett Johansson signed on to the project. Less than a week later, Deadline reported that Dreamworks would partner with Disney to produce the film. The House of Mouse will fund the film, which is expected to hit theaters on April 17, 2017.
