I’m sorry if anyone was actually excited about a live action remake of Akira because if you were, I have bad news.
It has been announced that the project is dead and gone.
Akira as a concept is one best left alone, Its very name for me defines anime and the film was so far ahead of its time and far out it would be lost on a Western audience.
Plus I dont know about you guys but the idea of Leonardo DiCaprio stepping into the shoes of Kaneda was just not.. good and the idea of then making it a two parts (considering it only ran for just over 2 hours) wasn’t sitting right with me.
So I’m ok with this development, Any comments?
