Akira Remake To Be Directed By The Hughes Brothers
Looks like Warner Bros. is going to give the go ahead on the long awaited Akira film. After the job that the Hughes Brothers did on The Book Of Eli looks like Warner Bros. has found its team for this upcoming film.
They are going to be making two films due to the length on the six-volume manga that the film will be based on.
Even if you had read all of Katsuhiro Otomo’s epic 1982 manga and/or seen his own 1988 anime adaptation, summarizing the plot to Akira would still prove a bit of a challenge. As near as we can figure, Akira is about the leader of a biker gang who tries to save his kidnapped pal from a powerful supernatural experiment. (It might also be a psycho-philosophical exploration of corruption, the will to power, and the maturation of man and mankind, but we were actually pretty high when we first saw it in college, so please don’t hold us to that.)
