Akira Movie

Akira The MovieWe’ve heard about a live action movie adaptation of Akira since quite a while, but the project was in development limbo. Well there’s reason to hope again: Warner Bros has hired the Hughes Brothers (who once brought us the Book of Eli) to helm the project. And Screenwriter Albert Torres is working on a new script. So hopefully, we’ll get to watch the movie Akira in a not too distant future.

Akira Movie

“The story is set in a neon-lit futuristic post-nuclear war ‘Neo-Manhattan’ where a teen biker gang member is subjected to a government experiment which unleashes his latent powers.”

On one hand I’m sad they they still haven’t released this live-action movie adaptation of Akira, but on the other hand they better take time to do it right, don’t want to the movie Akira to be a let down!
