Ghost in the Shell

Until now I hadn't found anything conclusive to support the rumours of Ghost in the Shell movie. However this morning I opened my laptop and found an actual trailer!

Ghost in the shell in my eyes is one of most iconic Manga films (next to Akira).

The trailer doesn't give too much away, but one thing it does show is that they have cast Scarlett Johansson for the part of Major Motoko Kusanagi. An augmented human, and field commander of Public Security section 9. After seeing Scarlett in the 2014 film "Lucy" I think she could play Kusanagi really well. Although the characters name will probably have changed by the time the film is released.

The only thing that worries me at the moment is the story. Will it be as close to the original or will it be a watered down version of the Manga icon I remember from my teens? I guess only time will tell...
