DreamWorks’ live-action Ghost in the Shell adaptation will begin shooting next year, star Scarlett Johansson confirmed during an interview with Collider.

Johansson was signed to star in the adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s manga and anime property earlier this year (see “ScarJo to Star in 'Ghost in the Shell'”), with Rupert Sanders directing.

“It’s happening,“ Johansson said during a press day interview for Avengers:Age of Ultron. “It will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February and it’s me and Rupert [Sanders]; and that’s all I know.”
