Comics Alliance and several other sources confirmed today that the Live Action Akira project has been shelved (probably for good).
Considering the way they were taking the movie, this is GREAT news :D
... everything we read about the project seemed to scream 'MASSIVE FAILURE!!!'. If you want to do the Akira story justice, I think you'd be best of to do a CGI series of movies that stick VERY close to the original manga, both in story as well as design.
Thank GOD. Thats the best news I've heard about this project XD
funny thing is other movie news sites say the film has just found a director. http://www.aintitcool.com/n... http://www.darkhorizons.com... http://www.totalfilm.com/ne...
