Rupert Sanders is set to direct a movie version of sci-fi manga Ghost In The Shell.

The British filmmaker has signed up for the live-action adaptation of the Japanese series, reported Deadline.

The series, written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow, follows the fictional counter-cyberterrorist organisation Public Security Section 9, and was previously turned into films in 1995 and 2004.
