It has been years now this movie has been rumored to being made. New rumors have Keanu Reeves being attached to the film. He would be in line to play Kaneda. Now I really like Keanu, the dude is just cool but this is a bad move. First off he’s too old to play Kaneda, but I guess that’s not that big of a deal. It seems like they want get someone the public knows decently well enough so maybe they can cast a nobody as Tetsuo. Akira live action will be hard to do, nerds will give it a hard time. Akira is an anime classic. They really have to keep things in line and do this right. Last thing we need is a bad Hollywood remake of this thing. Will see where it goes from here, but we’ve been hearing rumors like this for a long time now.
Live action Akira film still rumbling around
