I own both the Appleseed movies and im freaking in love with them! I watch Ex Machina atleast once a month, so this is very good news! Looking forward to it!

I have seen the original from back in the 90s and have to say it was awesome! I re-watched it at least 3 more times! I am in all the way in this one.

I've watched Appleseed(2004) and quite enjoyed it. Haven't watched Ex Machina yet though. Anyway, this is a good enough interesting news to me.

if this will have same visual quality as appleseed ex machina my mind will be blown from its shear awesomeness otherwise the visual CGI quality of Cat Shit One will do lol

I think the original non CGI Appleseed is handsdown the best.. but, still excited to see this when it comes out.

Now, if a new GiTS:SAC season is coming, I will die happy.

Heh, they really love CGI now. I'll watch it anyway.

A series? That could be cool, though I can't say I was a big fan or the CGI movies. Someone forgot to write a compelling story for them.

Ack, CGI, why...?

Didn't Production IG say a while ago that they were returning to an old popular franchise?

They're making two films and a sequel to a popular franchise in 2013. It's 2010 now.

I think they said 2012, but yeah good point. I just assumed when I saw Appleseed that this was the big hit they were referring to.

So still a chance of more GITS? Keeping ma fingers crossed
