"Akira" Remake Greenlit, Garrett Hedlund in Talks

"Akira" Remake Greenlit, Garrett Hedlund in TalksSubmit Comment
After years of trying to get it off the ground, Warner Bros has finally greenlit its live-action remake of the anime cult hit "Akira" and has scheduled production for late February/early March.

Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown) is on board to direct the film, which is now budgeted at $90 million, far less than it was previously. The studio is now focusing on finding the leads. "Tron: Legacy" star Garrett Hedlund is considered a front-runner to play Kaneda.

Set in New Manhattan, the sci-fi epic follows the leader of a biker gang who must save his friend, discovered with potentially destructive psychokinetic abilities, from government medical experiments.

IF this movie is set in Detroit,East LA or CHicago because theyre dangerous then i'll be up for it.NO NEW YORK or Miami

I actually agree with bando. Detroit is the reason robocop kicked so much ass. But manhattan? I dont think so.

$90 mil. is a modern budget for a Will Ferrell comedy, not a "sci-fi" epic.

And yeah, Detroit is a great choice.

When will somebody wake up in Hwood and realize Hedlund is box office poison? He really one of the worst actors EVER! Casting this guy is a true sign bad things to come.

New Manhattan? That's just f*cking blasphemous.. How the hell can they just take the story out of Neo Tokyo? Just seems wrong to me.

First, they allow only $90 million for the budget which is low for an epic adaptation and second, they cast white boy to play as a japanese character. That can mean only one thing: sh*t movie.

@Green Justin Chatwin? Does Dragonball remind you of anything? Of course not, nobody saw it. They already cast him in an Asian movie and you're thinking about doing it again? Wrong move.
