Laeta Kalogridis will be writing the script for GITS. “Who the hell is Laeta Kalogridis?” is the first question that many people are probably asking right now. Well, I didn’t know, so I looked up his past works. The only thing I heard of from him was Alexander, and that wasn’t too good.
Essentially, I have lost some hope for GITS to end up being good. It may have the Dreamworks name behind it, but without a decent producer, writer, and director, it could end up as another ass print on a DVD like Dragon Ball Evolution did.
Maybe one day Hollywood will leave anime alone or at least not change the stories so much that it alienates true fans of the series.
