Directed by Rupert Sanders (“Snow White and the Huntsman”), this version of “Ghost in the Shell” earned the approval of Oshii, who paid a visit to the set. “Scarlett Johansson playing Motoko from beginning to end has gone above and beyond my expectations for the role,” he said. “I’m sure this will be the most gorgeous film in the series so far.”
