Mamoru Oshii, Kenji Kamiyama, and Kenji Kawai Visit Live-Action Ghost in the Shell Film Set
posted on by Eric Stimson
In June, Mamoru Oshii, Kenji Kamiyama, and Kenji Kawai paid a visit to the set of the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie; they are the director of the first two Ghost in the Shell anime films, the director of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and its spin-off film, and the composer of the first two anime films respectively. They spoke with Rupert Sanders, the live-action film's director, and Scarlett Johansson, who plays the Major.

The movie is being filmed in Hong Kong. Below are photos from the filming on June 11, which took place at Yung Shue Tau and Tin Hau Temple in Kowloon. The temple was closed off for the day.
The film has stirred up controversy after its release of a photograph of Johansson as the Major, given widespread allegations that good roles for non-White actors are limited in Hollywood. The film's producer, Steven Paul, recently spoke to BuzzFeed about the controversy.
Thanks to Renato Rivera for the tip and Shushan Song for the translation.
