Most especially since the nature of the entire story is "what is Human?", which I doubt most in Hollywood can handle, since they barely qualify themselves.
If the screenwriters have any wisdom, they'll use one of the Stand Alone Complex episodes that was set in Germany. It would give them a lot to work with, without having to stretch anyone too far.

Mamoru Oshii, who (Fortunately.) had little to do with the GitS franchise outside the movie, did have a certain Polish actress in mind for the role of the Major in a live-action movie IIRC. I do think Hollywood would be doing a great service to the world if they kept Oshii from getting his hands on any part of a live-action movie, since it would result in a nearly constant monologue that would turn into idiotic idealism (Patlabor 2, I am looking at you.).
There has been rumblings about a GitS live-action movie for years now. Sometimes more and sometimes less serious. Not sure what this news would qualify as, though.
It is a good thing for Scarlett Johansson to have said to be attached to the project, since her stock has been steadily rising with her participation in the Marvel movies.

Also, I like Patlabor 2! All three Patlabor movies, for their faults, do a great job telling stories with background imagery, setting, atmosphere and music.

Of course, in GitS, "bureaucratic infighting" can result in blood being spilled so maybe that's not all bad.

I'm sure that Hollywood will do the same bang-up job that it did with "Starship Troopers".
