Get out, and don't come back. I'm not even a huge fan of Akira (think I've got it rated 8/10 on MAL), but this really annoys me. They're whitewashing the hell outta this. I think we might see a new bar set for Hollywood rape here.

Love Keanu Reeves but not for this....forget it.

No matter who they choose for the role people are going to hate it.

Megaton1995d ago

I know I will. Wanna see Akira? Watch the original. It would take a whole lot for me to change my mind about this abomination.

Why are they looking for someone so much older for these characters ? Makes no sense ???

Megaton1995d ago

I know, right? In the anime they're Japanese kids/teens, not middle-aged white guys.

I don't know what they're trying to do if in fact that is what they're doing. I know a lot of younger actors that would be much better suited for this....are we sure it's not just a rumor?
