Mamoru Oshii's Future Plans

The famed auteur has a lot coming up.

Few names inspire the instant respect that comes attached to Mamoru Oshii's; the Ghost in the Shell auteur, novelist, and scriptwriter is up with Satoshi Kon and Hayao Miyazaki as the best known Japanese anime directors outside of their home nation..


Which means you guys want to know what he's up to, right? So here's the scoop. Oshii's got two live-action films on his plate, one an indie pèce de résistance, the other an action flick peppered with sex and violence. In addition, he has an anime film in the works that we may see in 2011.


Of course, that's just the upcoming stuff-- an Oshii-written anime film based on Musashi Miyamoto, animated by Production I.G, is coming out this summer. Plenty to keep the man busy, never fear!
