There has been rumors of a Akira live action movie for a good decade or so but it looks like we may finally have a real movie in sight.
Warner Bross acquired the rights to make a live action Akira movie in 2002 but that contract could expire soon if a movie isn’t in production. Lucky for everyone the powers that be have stepped up and signed Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan, Goal 2? WTF) to direct.
For fans of the Manga or Anime it’s great news the story is getting yet another interpretation. It leaves the question, will modern day CGI and special effects be able to give Akira justice. Transformers worked out in the end but
As far as casting goes it’s had everyone attached from Morgan Freeman to Kristen Stewart and Keanu Reeves. Only time will tell who will play Tetsuo in this two part movie series.
Manga and Anime reviews coming soon, along with news on the upcoming movie.
