It looks like the oft-tried but never realised Akira US live-action remak is back on… and it has a writer on board. Again.
Deadline are reporting that Dante Harper, the first writer on the Tom Cruise movie Edge of tomorrow, is going to get to grips with the classic Manga tale.
They report that “Harper is currently working with Warner Bros, Appian Way, Mad Chance and director Jaume Collet-Serra on Akira, and recently did a draft on The Last Witch Hunter for Lionsgate.”
So, the remake/reboot of Akira is back on – we know that the response to this first time out was very negative, but does the inclusion of Harper help ease your mind, given that All You Need Is Kill was based on the Japanese light novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka? Or does it fill you with dread?
No release date, cast or filming details are known yet.
