I couldn't agree more that Planescape represents some of the best work TSR ever did, it was always my favorite.  In fact, I argue that the 2nd edition is an overlooked golden age for the game.  Certainly earlier editions have been basking in some renewed attention recently, and many of the players playing today grew up on 3.0 or later.  In some reading long after my time with 2nd edition, it sounds like this was a troubled time for the company itself, and perhaps that has reflected negatively on some of the work of this time.  Then again, perhaps this time just had less players and thus fewer people to carry on the memory of it.  But to me its easy to see that the time that brought us Dark Sun, Spelljammer, and Planescape was a wonderful time.  If you need any further evidence of the masterwork that is Planescape, consider its steampunk style - a full decade earlier than steampunk's current surge!

Probably a terrible idea but I can't help but be excited for a live-action GitS!

Following the success of “Lucy,” Scarlett Johansson looks ready to take on another action pic, this one coming from the world of Japanese anime.

Johansson is set to star in DreamWorks’ adaptation of the popular anime pic “Ghost in the Shell.” Deadline Hollywood had reported that the actress had the offer to star but at the time she was still undecided about taking the role. Sources now say she has agreed to star in the pic.

The story follows the exploits of a member of a covert ops unit of the Japanese National Public Safety Commission that specializes in fighting technology-related crime.

Rupert Sanders is on board to direct. Avi Arad and Steven Paul are producing the film from a script by Bill Wheeler. Mark Sourian is exec producing.

Insiders also tell Variety that Paramount has the option to come on as co-producer and financier and that decision is expected in the coming weeks.
