Live-action 'Akira' adaptation sets release date


+ Taika Waititi's 'Akira', produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, has been set for a May 21, 2021 release. Production begins this July.
+ Waititi affirms that it will be true to the books with no white-washed casting: “I actually love the books. Love the movie. But I would not do a remake of the movie. I would do an adaptation of the books. Actually Asian teenagers would be the way to do it for me... I mean sort of unfound, untapped talent".
+ No casting specifics or other details have been shared yet.
