DreamWorks has tapped scribe Laeta Kalogridis to adapt the Japanese manga property “Ghost in the Shell.” (…) Avi Arad, Ari Arad and Steven Paul of Seaside Entertainment are attached to produce and originally brought the project to DreamWorks. (…) Jamie Moss was the original writer hired when DreamWorks bought the property last year. (via variety)

Kalogridis, according to IMDB, worked as a screenplay writer for Ночной дозор (Night Watch) and two episodes of the exquisitely sad series called Bionic Woman done pretty much as if we still lived 25 years earlier but we had gorgeous women like Michelle Ryan.
