"Akira" Storyboards Leaked Online

Posted: March 22nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Akira" Storyboards Leaked OnlineSubmit Comment
Warner Bros has been working on a live-action "Akira" film for several years, with lots of actors and directors being attached at different times. But the movie never got off the ground due to budget concerns, and has now been shelved.

Thanks to io9, we now have some of the storyboards that were put together by Sylvain Despretz (Gladiator) during pre-production. At the time, Ruairi Robinson was set to direct the film, with "Book of Eli" writer Gary Whitta signed on as screenwriter and Leonard DiCaprio as producer. Check out the storyboards below.

"Akira" is not dead, it's just on hold. The goal is still to eventually make the film, but at this point, the only actor attached is Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy).

Do Not Distribute. lol. Damn though if they don't look good. Nice style and very much reminiscent, but inferior to, the original manga.

Hmmm. The movie might have been decent.

I agree. Let the Japanese make movies out of their own stories. The quality may be sh*t compared to Hollywood, but they know when an anime needs to be made live action and how.

Don't worry guys I think within the next couple of years Hollywood is going to learn that they can no longer make crap movies and have people flock to see it. In years past I've been floored by the fact that no matter what is put out the damn movie makes money. (Ghost Rider!) But recently we've seen a rash of dumb ass Hollywood crap fests getting hundred million dollar budgets and then loosing money.

Battleship should be the next one, hopefully, nobody goes to see that. Then maybe this Akira will flop and in the least they'll realize that yes, we do have a discerning palate, we won't just take whatever they push out. I just don't see why they don't clear things with "real" people instead of their fake execs who obviously think they know more about us dumb Americans than they do.

Lastly @midknightcd I gave a girlfriend the fist of the northstar once, she only allowed it because I have small girly hands, but it was still pretty horrible. Something about being elbow deep and realizing your chevette sized garage just got a mac truck parked inside it. No going to be the same after that. It's exactly like when you go black... they can never come back!
