Rolleyes Interesting Akira live action remake news
http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/23431/t...ira-remake


Agree that you can't do that movie with anything less than a R rating.

Didn't know the anime movie was only a portion of a larger story.

I really wish they wouldn't do this movie. Akira is intrinsically Japanese, so to do an American remake is insulting to the source material.

I saw Ran in theater… pretty much King Lear, with great panoramic battle scenes.

We got Seven Samurai from the Japanese, they in return have
produced a bastardize animation version of The Swiss Family Robinson.

RE: Interesting Akira live action remake news
To be honest, this is one of those movies/remakes/rehashes.. that I hope NEVER gets working.

There are some Japanese animes that would work in a live action model, but this one is definitely NOT one of them. (Akira was the first full-length Japanese anime I ever actually saw).

This one is a little more adult in nature than those Saturday Morning cartoons most Americans grew up on.

If they did it live action now it would easily be a R and if they did the original anime justice it should be NC17 for the gore and violence.
