From Ruairi Robinson


Quote :
Part one of a two-part live action adaptation of the 1988 anime film, "Akira", in which the leader of a biker leader tries to save his kidnapped friend from a powerful supernatural experiment

Quote :

Akira is set in a neon-lit futuristic post-nuclear war Tokyo in 2019 where a teen biker gang member is subjected to a government experiment which unleashes his latent powers. The gang's leader must find a way to stop the ensuing swathe of destruction.

Based on the classic 1988 as manga which was made into an animated film by Katsuhiro Otoma.

More remakes, sigh . . .

Well, not quite. Word has it that there will be several live-action feature films made and that they will be based on the rather lengthy original manga (printed comic book) instead of the movie version.

The series will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio's production company along with Warner Bros. Screenplay will be by Gary Whitta. No news yet on casting or a director, but the project is being fast-tracked for 2009.

-sigh- Neutral

why make a real life adaptation of something as brilliant as the Akira Anime... it CANīT be better than the animated movie, I donīt care how much money and special effects and topactors and topdirectors they throw at it!!! Just like the animated movie will never beat the comicseries...

weīll see... but personally: Evil or Very Mad !!!
