Actual actors are apparently being considered for the Hollywood
remake adaptation bastardization version of Akira. Among them, Garrett Hedlund of Tron Legacy, Gary Oldman, Helena Bonham Carter, and Keira Knightley.
Now, I don’t know about you guys, but to me, nothing says “warring biker gangs in a futuristic, cyberpunk version of Japan” like Keira Knightley and that guy from Tron. Am I right?
(Also, aren’t the main characters high-school aged? Does anybody buy the Tron dude as a high-schooler? Even in this age of high school students as portrayed by late twenty-somethings?)
