Well, the whole ghost in the shell movie plot/theme would actually work out well now a days.
It doesn't have to be set in Japan the whole story could be moved to anywhere in the world, given its set in the future. While I do like to see a live action clone of the tv series played out, I'll give this a shot.
Hell, it might just be as good as Edge of Tomarrow. Incase you missed the memo that was a manga turned Hollywood movie called All You Need is Kill. For me that was a dam good movie. I never knew it was a manga till I read the credits.
So it actually might have a shot. The whole reason I think why most anime to Hollywood movies suck, it's because they are kiddy shows trying to be serious in the movie. It just does not translates well. Given ghost in the shell is no where near kiddy, the story could be on par with Ex Machina movie.
Unless they totally shit on everything and it flops royally the whole plot, then yeah. Who knows.
