The director of Snow White and the Hunstman has signed on to direct the live-action take on anime classic Ghost in the Shell. Deadline reports that Rupert Sanders--who eventually became more famous for having an affair with his star Kristen Stewart than for the film itself--will direct the film for DreamWorks from s script by William Wheeler. Steven Spielberg is said to consider the film a priority for DreamWorks.
The film is based on the Japanese manga and anime in which the cybornetic Motoko Kusanagi, a member of the covert ops agency Section 9, hunts down a mysterious hacker known as the Puppet Master.
