Keanu Reeves Passes on Akira, Now What?

JoBlo: Earlier this month, Warner Bros., in yet another attempt to get an A-list star with international appeal to anchor the increasingly expensive AKIRA, began informal talks with Keanu Reeves about taking the lead role in the film. The discussions were early but optimistic as Reeves seemed to have interest in the material but we can confirm that Reeves has officially joined Brad Pitt, James Franco and Ryan Gosling as actors who've passed on starring in AKIRA.

There you go, Megaton. Your wish has been granted. Make way for the next white actor xD

Pfft, for my wish to be granted they'd have to scrap this abomination. They eliminated 1 turd in a punch bowl of sh*t.

darklordzor4757d ago

Agreed, they just need to let this one go. I'd rather stick with the original.

It's hollywood lol. They're relentless with remakes.

Megaton4757d ago

I think this one sets a new bar for Hollywood rape. Akira in name only.

Of all the actors associated with this, he was the one I liked most...but you can't shine a turd.

What will it take for them to greenlight an Akira adaptation using nothing but puppets? What will it take!?
