At its Anime Expo industry panel, the anime studio Production I.G revealed that Right Stuf has acquired the North American rights to the Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie. Right Stuf had announced the Utena television series at its panel the day prior.
I.G also confirmed that it is involved in Avi Arad's upcoming live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell, and is working with Arad to create a new Ghost in the Shell comic titled Innocent (not to be confused with Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence). I.G is also currently working on two co-productions, one a kids series and the other a co-production with Singapore.
Update: I.G has told ANN after the panel that it "may participate" in Avi Arad's upcoming live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. The Innocent was not described as a Ghost in the Shell work.
