If they make a live action movie, I want it to have a serious tone like the second and third Patlabor movies and the GITS franchise. Oshii should direct, but he shouldn't write, he himself stated visual is more important than story to him. Get Kenji Kamiyama to write, he's great at writing political and military conspiracies storylines.
