With Kristen Stewart and Helena Bonham Carter possibly slated to join the Akira remake cast, it’s a horrible chunk of news indeed to hear that, right now, the production may well be dead in the water.
The original series followed a Japanese biker gang who finds one of its members experimented on, and in turn, receiving psychic powers. But those powers may well lead to the destruction of the entire planet, as they find out much to their horror when the experimented member turns against his hometown.
But considering that the movie itself had at least two rewrites, and has recently sent the crew packing, this may well be the end for the production. However, this isn’t the first time the production has seemed doomed, and there’s just something about it that’s keeping the folks at Warner Brothers coming back for more.
Keep it right here for all the latest on this one, because there’s sure to be more soon!
