ET Visits The “Ghost in the Shell” Set

Ahead of the first trailer premiere this Sunday, a new behind-the-scenes video is out from the New Zealand set of the live-action “Ghost in the Shell” film starring Scarlett Johansson.

The segment, courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, shows Johansson as The Major and Pilou Asbaek as Batou engaged in an intense shootout that occurs in broad daylight in parts of Wellington that were redressed to look like a futuristic Asian city. Some of the film was also shot in Hong Kong.

Director Rupert Sanders, British trip-hop singer Tricky, original 1995 anime film director Mamoru Oshii, ‘Shell’ TV anime director Kenji Kamiyama and composer Kenji Kawai are also on hand during the scenes suggesting the creative minds who brought the property to life on screen in animated form are likely involved in the new version.

This take on “Ghost in the Shell” is currently slated to hit cinemas in March.
