Live-Action Akira movie announced and will be made in California!

If James Cameron can make a movie about Alita: Battle Angel, maybe Leonardo DiCaprio can do it too? It’s been revealed by Crunchyroll and Rightstuf that the manga series Akira, made by Katsuhiro Otomo, will be made into a movie. According to Crunchyroll, the movie will be live-action and it will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and will be funded by Warner Bros. The movie will be shot in California, United States with a budget of 18.5 million tax credit.

  1. Hollywood has the resources (special effects and money) to make a spectacular Akira film. Based on past anime adaptations I however remain sceptical. Maybe they are turning a corner though. Some people liked Alita.
