Gary Oldman and Ezra Miller in Talks for "Akira"

Gary Oldman and Ezra Miller in Talks for "Akira"Submit Comment
Reports recently surfaced that the "Akira" film is back on track with "Tron: Legacy" star Garrett Hedlund in talks to play the role of Kaneda. Now comes word that actors are being tested for the other roles in the film.

Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and Alden Eherenreich (Tetro) are candidates for the role of Tetsuo, who acquires deadly telekinetic powers after encountering a government experiment.

Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight) is in talks to play the Colonel, the military leader assigned to take down Tetsuo once they realize he may have enormous power. Meanwhile, Helena Bonham Carter and Keira Knightley are in talks for undisclosed roles.

I thought Morgan Freeman was set to play the Colonel? Well, Oldman is just as good. And I think I know which part they want Keira for.

But all this doesn't change the fact that this movie should not be made.

The only problem I got with this project is that studios are trying to revitalize a classic in live action. Just see what happen to Dragon Ball, and now everybody hates the damn manga!!!!

This will be cool if Garrett Hedlund is not involved. Guy jumps on a bike once and all of a sudden he's in Akira.
