Live Action Akira Scrapped

Archimedes

Not Dead Yet
Now if only the same would happen with King of Fighters, or Castlevania. Those both look pretty damn horrible.
They better not. Although I could see them making someone with an austrailian accent playing Light.
You do realize who all are working on the Death Note remake correct? It's better off scrapped.

Screw that. Dragon Ball Evolution's sequel is top priority on the "DO NOT WANT" list.
Are they actually going to make a sequel? Pretty sure the first one bombed.

In my opinion anime based movies are fine they just need to start treating them with more respect. It took them a few years to figure that out for comic book movies and it'll probably take them a while to figure it out for anime ones too.

They've signed on for at least 3 sequels to Dragonball Evolution.

Maybe they're afraid Dragonball Evolution is a sign that live action anime movies don't work.

...except that D:E is getting its own sequel. So I dunno.

Now if only Tekken, Death Note, KiKi's Delivery Service, Prince of Persia, Shadow of the Collossus, KOF and the unwanted DB Evolution sequels would get canned.

O_O?? WTF?? How do you make a movie out of that. I'd rather them make a movie to Ico then SotC. Seriously, what are they going to do to make this work?

Agreed to having that canned.

Why the hell is it that cheap American companies with a firing lust to cash off the most unnecessary of things are the ones that get the rights to anime adaptations? ****, Koreans would do better off their license (nothing to do with my nationality), and most people would agree to that.

Everyone loves a good hollywood movie.

****.

Really hope that Ghost in the Shell and Ninja Scroll don't see the same fate; otherwise, I'm not holding out hope.

Good. I personally can't stand Live action adaptions to anime XP
You are aware that live-action adaptions of anime and manga has been around for a long time, right?

Maybe Warner Brothers will scrap Death Note next.
Death Note could really work, If Warner Brother could do a japanese verison, they could to american adaption of Death Note.

I was interested in seeing a live action verison of Akria, I guess that it was too differecult.

As for Dragonball evolution, yes the fail in the us, but was successful in Asia.

I'm almost willing to bet money it's gonna be Christian Bale.
