Akira 'live' remake stalled


Creative Writer
Warner Bros. finally catches up to everyone else and realizes a live-action Akira isn't such a great idea

The budget seems to keep going down on this one and for now production is suspended until they can figure out a reduced budget. Frankly, with Akira being so huge, it's not like it will utterly fail at the cinema, but maybe the film companies really ought to look into how to make films a bit cheaper and if they can't, then there's something very wrong if effects trounce storylines. They used to say the silver screen was about storytelling, but that is sadly no longer quite true. They're losing their way.
