    It'll be interesting to see but we really do not need one.

    I think they are also going to do a Bleach movie. I hope these two won't be a massacre like Dragonball Evolution...

    I can't help but feel pessimistic about this...

    God. I hope this falls through. At least it's not Uwe Boll.

    great, another lead who's supposed to be japanese, but is a white person. asians just arent cool enough i guess........this is gonna fail so bad, especially from the director of house of wax.

    exactly, why couldn't they use jackie chan or jet li? or someone similar? why are they using a caucasian male as the lead role, i really hate these remakes they really grind my gears.

    This is going to be terrible. I hate Warner Bros. ruining such a classic manga, and anime. It might as well be Uwe Boll, that's the kind of respect they're gonna give it anyway.

    the fuck I for sure thought that the movie was going down the drain, fuck I liked the movie, the animation is SUPERB by far one of the best movies just to watch for the sake of looking at it. Now they gotta fuck up the Akira's good name with this soon to be shat out shit, I mean you just can't recreate what the movie did into live action.

    Fuck this also reminded me of the point blank remake.... FUCK REMAKES

    Well at least we can hope this will be a huge box office bomb. Just like Dragonball Evolution.
