Live-action Akira adapation picks up steam

- greenlit by Warner Bros.

- helmed by Jaume Collet-Serra ("Unknown")
- "Tron: Legacy" star Garrett Hedlund is being considered for one of the leads
- Appian Way's Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran are producing with Andrew Lazar
- Katsuhiro Otomo, who wrote and directed the 1988 the anime, will exec produce



  1. i hope this turns out good. Depending on how Akira does Warner Bros. will greenlight the live action Bleach and Death Note movie

  2. I don't know, to be perfectly honest, I've never been a big fan of Akira. I've watched it twice over the years, and it just never really clicked with me.

  3. I've still yet to see the original.
