Those that know the 1988 animated movie AKIRA by Manga KNOW that a live action remake is a BIG fucking deal. Those that know will rejoice. Those that know have their 22 yr-old prayers answered. Those that know question “Are the Hughes Brothers well equipped to handle this?” The Hughes Brothers are responsible for heavy films like “From Hell” “Book of Eli” and “Menace II Society”. But still, Akira is a movie that heavily demands director names like Spielberg, Cameron, Jackson or Wachowsky. Names we can trust with our inner geek. Either way, I am stoked that this is finally being made. And you should too… that is, if you are one of those who know. It’ll be okay, Warner Bros. never made a mistake I didn’t enjoy.
