Stunning Concept Art That Should Inspire ‘GHOST IN THE SHELL’ Movie

Feb 9, 2015

We just learned that Dreamworks will have many extra months of pre-production for their live-action Ghost In The Shell film.

That said, I’ve dug-up some fantastic concept art (none is from the film) which many artists have already put together and hopefully the production design team over at Dreamworks sees this wonderful artwork influencing the final look of the film.

Being a huge fan of the material I’d hate to see the studio deviate too much from the original look and tone of Shell. Although, I’ve come to accept it’s likely going to need a PG-13 rating to allow for a larger production budget.

Yet, Dreamworks is the same production company that gave us Saving Private Ryan, The Pacific, Band of Brothers, Munich, Collateral, Rescue Me, and Gladiator.

Some of the concept pieces are direct homages to the classic anime film/series and others I’ve added because I feel like they could easily be included into that world.

It’s not hard to see how Shell could incorporate major visual cues from other films such as Blade RunnerAvatar, District 9, Elysium, Moon, The MatrixChildren of Men, and Chappie.

Ghost In The Shell will be released on April 14th, 2017 with Rupert Sanders set to direct and Scarlett Johansson (Her, Lost In Translation, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Lucy) confirmed to star.

Also, here’s a very cool trailer for the upcoming first-person-shooter video game Ghost In The Shell: First Connection. There’s lots of amazing visuals and design work that could be pulled for the film as well.
