The Akira Movie Is Still Happening, But Possibly Without Taika Waititi

Film News

In case you’re unfamiliar with the original Akira, which itself was based off a manga series, the movie takes place in the dystopian Neo-Tokyo in 2019, and follows a biker named Sh?tar? Kaneda who watches as his childhood friend, Tetsuo Shima, gains telekinetic powers after a motorcycle accident and gradually becomes a threat to the entire country. Although previous attempts at the remake would have seen white actors playing the characters, Taika Waititi said back when he was still in negotiations to direct that he would cast Asian-American actors as the leads.
