Dreamworks has bought the rights to the Ghost in the Shell franchise. Hmmm… What is to come of my favourite Deleuze-and-Guattari-citing, massive-robot, sexy-cyborg work of Japanese popular culture? A 3-D live action thiller apprently. Ok… Live action rhizomes? The ‘ghost’ and the ‘shell’ correlate with what Deleuze described as the incorporeal and corporeal dimensions of events. For example, the ‘Laughing Man’ only makes sense as an event. What is cool about GitS is that much of the time is spent exploring the metaphysical problematic of events in a futurstic virtualised world as much as it is about chasing down the bad guys, etc.
