The first official trailer for Paramount’s live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell will arrive on Sunday, November 13th, but we now have a brand new behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming Rupert Sanders-directed movie courtesy of Entertaiment Tonight.
The site had the chance to speak with star Scarlett Johansson while the movie was still filming in New Zealand (a small chunk of the film was also shot in Hong Kong) and discuss her role, as well as her daughter’s thoughts on her look for this project and much more. There’s nothing too revealing here, but we do see Johansson shooting an action-packed scene alongside Game of Thrones star Pilou Asbaek, who plays Batou.
In the video, Johansson can also be seen talking to Mamoru Oshii (director of the 1995 Ghost in the Shell anime film), Kenji Kamiyama (director of the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime television series and its second season, plus the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society TV movie), Kenji Kawai (composer of two Ghost in the Shell movies), and Tricky, who plays a character in the movie.
You can watch the video below.
