Live action Akira movie starring Tron Legacy's Garrett Hedlund

The live action Akira film has officially been green lit by Warner Bros. and the current front runner to play Kaneda is Tron Legacy’s Garrett Hedlund. Plans are to start as early as February or March of next year.

So is Flynn Jr. a better Kaneda than Leo? Do you prefer this crappy photoshop to the one I did back when reported details on the movie’s director and writer?

A word to fans! Please don’t call this a remake, like fools at slashfilm and many others have done. Akira was a Manga before it was an Anime movie, so this simply an adaptation of that Manga in a different medium. We can still speculate about the validity of white people fucking it up, but it’s no more a remake than Dragonball Evolution was a remake of that shitty Anime Dragonball Z movie. Which one? Take your pick…
