Potter Finale had Better Include These Moments

When the decision was made to cleave "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" into two movies, it was easy to see it as a unnecessary, commercially motivated move. After all, there was no natural mid-story cliffhanger to point to, and wasn't there quite a bit of mid-book wandering and narrative boondoggling that could have easily been cut? It's an attitude fostered by six previous film adaptations that continued to clock in at relatively lean running times, given the expanding girth of J.K. Rowling's novels.

Of course, to keep the earlier films at two-and-a-half hours or less, sacrifices had to be made. Subplots had to be excised; beloved characters had their arcs abbreviated. This is a fact of life when adapting books into movies. And it's likely that fattier versions of the films would not have played as well. But now that the films are in the home stretch, and the "Potter" story has played out fully in book form, a two-part finale offers a prime opportunity to pay tribute to Rowling's wide, wide world. But with this expanded ending, there are certain scenes Potter fans are going to expect to see.

kylie wants to be us x factor judge

KYLIE Minogue is set for a sensational role on The X Factor role after telling Simon Cowell: “I’m up for it.”

The Aussie pop princess revealed how she is keen to follow in kid sister Dannii’s footsteps by becoming a judge on the US version of the hit show. But Kylie, 42, also hinted that as part of the deal she could enjoy a “sister act” on the British version of the ­talent show.

Simon, 50, will launch his American version of The X ­Factor next year. And news that Kylie is up for ­perching her pert posterior in one of the judge’s seats will be music to his ears.

Sources admit that he has long wanted to get Kylie to join his line-up but she has resisted his advances – until now. When asked about The X Factor by American TV’s NBC, Kylie said: “That would interest me. Maybe I could come in for a special kind of tutorial.”

Officially, Simon’s camp are claiming that it is still “too early” to discuss potential judges. But an insider said: “There are a few names on the wishlist and Kylie definitely is one of them.”


I like Kylie but I think it's clear the US doesn't want her :\ Besides, her sister is the one with judging experience already...

Fergie: Cole’s HOT

BISEXUAL pop star FERGIE says CHERYL COLE is so sexy that she could turn any straight woman gay. The BLACK EYED PEAS singer - who has joked she has a crush on the GIRLS ALOUD beauty - said she was "hot enough to turn anyone". Fergie, 35, added: "Some girls you look at and think, 'Damn, you shouldn't look that good'. Cheryl is one of them. "She has this quality that turns powerful men into giggly schoolboys. Any guy that ends up with her will be lucky. "It might not be a man. I'd take her out on a date and she knows it." X Factor judge Cheryl, 26, has supported the Black Eyed Peas on their European tour. She struck up a close friendship with rapper WILL.I.AM and even introduced him to her mum. CHERYL has admitted she needs only four hours sleep a night. <------ no idea why this is in the article other than to let everyone know she has plenty of time for shagging

Fleur Delacour to guest star in Gossip Girl

Clémence Poésy on Gossip Girl

Harry Potter’s Clémence Poésy is set to guest star on Gossip Girl’s fourth season!

The 27-year-old French actress is best know for her role as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter films. The fourth season of GG, which premieres this fall, begins in Paris as Serena and Blair enjoy the summer across the pond.

The Wrap, who broke the story, could not confirm the number of episodes that Clemence will star in or which character she plays.

She's also reprising her role in Deathly Hallows pt I and II, which I am going to cry during.

Ja Rule weighs in on Queen Lil Kim VS. Stranger Danger Nicki

He told DJ Vlad: "I thought Nicki was paying homage. I never heard Nicki say nothing disrespectful about Kim. As a matter of fact, in interviews I thought I heard Nicki say she likes Kim, for me, having been in possibly the biggest beef in hip-hop, I think hip-hop beefs are wack because the beef I was in, n*ggas act like I didn't battle back, I didn't make rap battles, nah, y'all motherf*ckers didn't want to hear my raps back at 50 [Cent] or y'all didn't want to hear what I had to say about 50 because he was the new hot artist at the time, everybody rode on that wave which I understand.

“I think it's silly for Nicki and Kim to be arguing. I think they could be making hot records together because it's obvious that Nicki likes Kim, she did the same pose, like, that pose is so obvious Kim. Nobody can mistake that for being you, that can only be said as paying homage. It's not like she tried to steal that from you."


Ok what is up with everybody in Rap playing patty cake and shit? Before itunes, ring-tones, and mp3 players rap was about Beef/Battling!!   It was a way for people to settle their differences without killing each other. Beefs give fire to some of the best rap albums out today! ( exp. Jay-Z and NaS)
Also Ja Rule, copying someone is NOT a show of respect if you are NOT mentioning the source! In college we call that plagiarism! Lil Kim is speaking her mind un-edited and raw like she has been for the past two decades! Maybe this will help Stranger Danger Nicki make some better material than her flop first two singles.

And to all you Haterz I dedicate this song to you and your mama!

Teairra Mari To Drop EP This August

Teairra Mari may be one of the baddest chicks in the game right now, but she hasn’t had the luck of her sex appeal pushing her label Warner Bros. to release her super delayed sophomore album At That Point. The singer has been seeing some good success with her single, “Sponsor” however, it doesn’t seem that is enough for WB to release her album. In lieu of the full LP, it was just announced that a 5 track EP will be released on August 17th. I actually don’t think this is such a bad move. It’s better than no release right? In this market, or singles market I should say, EP’s are becoming more and more popular. So why not drop it and see what happens.

TLC To Air Hour-Long Special on Michael Jackson's Kids (WTF)

Michael Jackson wasn't the kind of dad you'd catch flipping burgers on the barbecue.

But cable channel TLC is out to prove that -- despite all the weirdness that enveloped his world -- Jackson was the kind of father they make phone-company commercials about.

Prince, Paris and Blanket, who are now 13, 12 and 8 years old, get their first, unauthorized TV special -- "Hidden Lives of Michael Jackson's Children" -- Father's Day night.

But the network means "hidden" in a good way, it seems.

"I think people are always going to say that [Jackson was strange]," says executive producer Wendy Douglas. "But I feel that if they . . . see some of the things he did with his kids, I hope they think a little less of that. They'll say he was a little weird, but was also a very hands-on father."

The special, airing at 9 P.M., comes on the one-year anniversary of Jackson's death (June 25). It features behind-the-scenes footage seen before only in snippets -- including Jackson helping Prince recite his "ABCs" and playing chess with his oldest son.

The show has its tabloid moments, like former child actor Mark Lester saying that Jackson asked him to make a "donation" to help conceive Paris.

But the point of the special is that the kids behind the dark veils and (sometimes grotesque) masks were fairly average children.

"Footage of Michael and his kids was always protected. He never liked to release it," says Douglas.
"We were shocked we had this intimate footage, and I love it because it shows how much of a great father he is. You'll actually see how hands-on he was and how close he was to his children."

While no one interviewed on Sunday's special doubts that Jackson loved his kids, his child-rearing methods (including the veils and masks) are questioned by some -- including Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth, who covered Jackson's 1993 child molestation case (eventually settled out-of-court).

(Orth's late husband, Tim Russert, hosted "Meet the Press" for NBC, which produced this special under its Peacock Productions banner.)

The true paternity of Jackson's children is also cautiously questioned. Lester admits that he could be Paris's father, but adds that "it doesn't really matter," since Jackson was her father in every other sense of the word.

Missing are interviews with any of the kids themselves.

"As you can imagine, that was something that would have been really challenging and difficult to get," Douglas says.


Erm . . . well, it's nice that they're not out to bash MJ and all, but at the same time, do these kids really need an hour-long TV special about their lives? Their dad was the famous pop star, not themselves.

Who Sang It Best? Lupe Fiasco vs. B.o.B.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Did you know the hit record, "Nothin On You" (featuring Bruno Mars) wasn't really for him. Hit producer Jim Jonsin says he begged the the label head, Craig Kallman, to let B.o.B keep the song. "I was actually working on a session in Chung King [Studios], and [Atlantic Records chairman] Craig Kallman called me during that session with that particular track, to work on it for Lupe Fiasco," Jonsin told MTV News. "I told Craig, 'I like the song a lot. It's a smash and could be somebody's single. But it's not Lupe's record. I need this record for B.o.B. Please give this record to B.o.B.'

I guess they went through whoever they went through and convinced whoever they needed to, and it got to B.o.B." Jonsin then talked about how surprised they were with the songs success. "We really didn't expect it to have the dramatic impact it had, nor how fast it happened," B.o.B told MTV News last month. "Me and my managers, B. Rich and TJ, we still look at each other speechless. We always aim to be successful. But when the byproduct exceeds your expectations — when usually you barely make the basket with what you want — the gratitude is through the roof. It's literally a dream come true."

Somehow, Taylor Lautner Won't Realize That These Aren't His Real Parents in 'Abduction'

Lionsgate has lined up a cast around Taylor Lautner for Abduction, which starts shooting July 12 in Pittsburgh. Lautner plays a youth who discovers the parents that raised him aren't his real folks, a revelation that leaves him running for his life. Sigourney Weaver will play his therapist, Maria Bello plays his mother, Jason Isaacs plays his father, Denzel Whitaker plays his best friend, and Michael Nyqvist plays the villain. They join Lily Collins, who plays his girlfriend, and Alfred Molilna, a CIA agent vested in bringing the kid in alive.

The plot of the new Taylor Lautner thriller Abduction centers on his sudden realization that the mom and dad who’ve raised him aren’t actually his real parents. How do you cast those roles convincingly? With two actors famous for being blond, of course! Jason Isaacs (who plays Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter series) and Maria Bello have come aboard the project as Lautner’s fake family, and for an entire first act, he will pretend not to notice that their tans are nowhere near as good as his. Somewhere, Jennifer Lopez is crying, for the assimilatory torch has been passed.

Box office update: 'Toy Story 3' on fire; 'Jonah Hex' bombs

Here’s a lesson for the movie studios: You can make a sequel 11 years after its predecessor as long as the story is great and the characters are so beloved that earlier generations are still attached to them. That’s what Disney-based Pixar did with the third chapter in the Toy Story franchise. Toy Story 3 grossed an estimated $41 million Friday night, suggesting that many of those 20-somethings who watched Toy Story 2 when they were in elementary school came back to the franchise to see its latest chapter. Now Buzz Lightyear and Cowboy Woody are destined for Pixar’s record books, with the highest-opening ever for a Pixar movie. Based on the Friday numbers, Toy Story 3 could earn as much as $120 million for the three-day frame. (The studio’s previous opening-weekend record was $70 million for Finding Nemo in 2003.)

That’s the good news. The bad news is that Warner Bros.’ action Western Jonah Hex is a giant misfire. The Josh Brolin-starrer grossed approximately $2 million for a weekend that’s likely to wind up with only $6 million and a probable sixth place in the box office rankings. That is really bad. And it doesn’t bode well for the studio that released Splice earlier this month to paltry numbers too.

The rest of the top five will be dominated by holdovers, with The Karate Kid holding in fairly well considering its competition from Toy Story 3. The Jackie Chan-Jaden Smith starrer grossed an estimated $8 million on Friday for a weekend that should total $30 million, representing a 46 percent drop-off and a total cume that’s likely to reach over $100 million. The A-Team is in for a steeper fall, earning less than $4 million on Friday for a likely weekend total of $13 million. That represents close to a 60 percent drop for a movie that bowed last weekend to number’s beneath industry expectations. Shrek Forever After is likely to take fourth place with a bit over $2 million on Friday and a weekend total that should add up to over $8 million. Fifth spot goes to Get Him to the Greek which earned a bit under $2 million Friday night for a weekend that should reach $6 million for the frame.

Check back tomorrow for official results.



Engaged Megan Fox Flaunts Giant Black Ring

Guess Megan Fox hasn't replaced her lost engagement ring yet. She showed up wearing an enormous black ring on her right hand at Thursday's premiere of Jonah Hex in Hollywood. (The new Us Weekly, out now, reports that Fox lost the 2-carat ring on a Hawaiian beach just hours after Brian Austin Green's proposal.

Even without a new diamond to show off, Fox, 24, gushed to UsMagazine.com about her wedding -- even if it's still a long ways off.

"It's going to be years!" she told Us of her walk down the aisle. "I'm going to be 44 when I get married!"

Whenever the big day happens, Green, 36, will be a hands-on groom, Fox said. "He is in on the planning. He wants to be!"
The star also clarified to reporters that their latest news is "really not a re-engagement... nothing is different."
The couple began dating in 2004 but called off their previous two-year engagement in February 2009.

The original gangster, Pac-Man, on yo TV in 3D

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Avi Arad wants to bring Pac-Man back to television -- and he wants to do it in 3D. Arad, former CEO of Marvel Studios and now executive adviser for Namco Bandai, showed a three-minute teaser of his vision for the new Pac-Man at an E3 event celebrating the pellet chomper's 30th birthday.
    Pac-Man was the star of a Saturday morning cartoon in the 1980s (in the thick of the nation's obsession with the game). Arad, though, hopes to use computer animation and advances in stereoscopic 3D to create a show that speaks to teenagers and tells the story of a hero who doesn't know his own strengths.
   "We wanted to keep Pac-Man the same lovable guy he has always been, but (put him) in the 21st century," Arad said. "We (also) wanted to talk about real stories and … see how they can relate to our lives, being in high school and being a teenager. At the end of the day, it's the story of a reluctant hero."
   The plot centers around ghosts who are trying to overtake Pac-Man's world. (PAC LAND) It's up to Pac-Man, who's a high school student, to save the world. In this mission, he'll be assisted by his Pac-friends and four friendly ghosts -- Pinky, Inky, Blinky and Clyde (who were the little guy's archenemies in the original arcade game). Arad said he has not yet approached studios and distributors with the idea, since he and Namco wanted to unveil it at the celebratory event -- and both parties wanted the 3D in the trailer to be done right before showing it to potential TV partners.
   "We feel we have a unique opportunity to have an action adventure, human interest story," Arad said. "As a filmmaker, it's a unique opportunity to get to know the characters you play. … We don't know what happened to Pac-Man's parents. He's the only yellow one in Pac-Land; what does that mean? Is it a social statement? We'll find out."

Bethenny Won't Return to Housewives Without Some Changes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Is Bethenny Frankel following in Dina Manzo‘s footsteps?

Like the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star who recently revealed she was done with the show, Frankel says she too may be walking away from the NYC version of Bravo’s hit franchise — unless there are a few key changes.

“I don’t see myself going back to The Real Housewives the way that the cast is now,” the new mom told PEOPLE Thursday at a Pampers event in New York on Thursday.

Frankel went on a “horrendous” trip to the Virgin Islands with her nemesis Kelly Bensimon and saw her friendship with Jill Zarin unravel on the latest season of the reality show.

Whether or not she decides to step away from the drama, Frankel is more than happy to continue appearing on another show: Her own.

“[Bethenny Getting Married?] has been so well received, everyone loves it and it’s really all about me, so that takes a big weight off of my shoulders because I guess I can carry a show,” she says about the highest-rated premiere in Bravo’s history.

“I just am so happy. I really have the best fans. They’re so interactive and they root for me,” she adds. “I could cry. I have the best fans. It’s all about the relationship with the fans.”

Alicia Silverstone: Enviromentalist

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Recently on her personal blog, "The Kind Life," actress and environmentalist Alicia Silverstone wrote an in-dept article on the use of reusable hygiene products. "This blog is for the ladies! Men, no need to read further!" She stated, following her attention-grabbing or attention-averting opener with statistics about disposable pads and tampons:

"'According to waste consultant Franklin Associates, 6.5 billion tampons and 13.5 billion sanitary pads, plus their packaging, ended up in landfills or sewer systems in 1998. And according to the Center for Marine Conservation, over 170,000 tampon applicators were collected along U.S. coastal areas between 1998 and 1999.'"

"I am so not a tampon girl," she added, "But if you prefer tampons to pads, then there are alternatives like the Diva Cup and the Keeper, which are reusable cups made from silicone or rubber that you wash out and can reuse for up to ten years. Supposedly popular among European ladies. I haven't tried them, but if you have, I'd like to hear your thoughts. I love the idea of these, but am freaked out by them cause I’m so not into tampons. But I think that if you like tampons, you might be into these. Let me know!"


What do you think, ONTD? Personally, I love that allahlicia does so much for the enviroment, but personally I just can't get into the idea of sticking a rubber cup up my snatch. Also I think it's pretty sexist of her to exclude men like that...just because they don't menstruate doesn't mean they don't care about landfills!

"Animated Black Panther To Debut ... Finally ... Digitally"

Marvel Comics announced today that an animated series, Black Panther: Who Is The Black Panther?, will debut June 23 on major online platforms iTunes, Xbox Live, Microsoft Zune and Playstation Network. This is the same project that was originally slated to air on cable network BET.

In April 2008, Marvel Comics and BET announced an animated series based on Black Panther, king of fictional African nation Wakanda and widely considered the first black superhero. Reginald Hudlin was both writer of the Black Panther comic and president of entertainment for BET at the time.

Based on trailer footage released at the 2008 Comic-Con International, it literally looked like Hudlin and artist John Romita Jr.'s comic books "come to life," with the stories and visual lifted directly from pages. The vocal cast included Academy Award-nominee Djimon Hounsou and soul singer Jill Scott.

It never aired on TV, despite being slated for early 2009 and several episodes completing production. This January, six episodes aired on Australia's ABC3, though no domestic air dates were announced.

Now, the series will finally see the light of day for the rest of the world, though not on TV. BET was not mentioned in the press release.

The release of the series marks the latest in Marvel's increasing online efforts. In April, they released an iPhone and iPad app, acting as both an online store and digital reader. The publisher has also released motion comic versions of Astonishing X-Men and Iron Man: Extremis, and last year premiered a new Spider-Woman series first as a motion comic, with the print edition following a few weeks later.

The Ups and Downs of Robert Downey Jr.'s Career

Robert Downey, Jr. has pulled off an incredible feat in his career, going from nearly less than zero for around 25 years to box office hero in the last two. Aside from supporting roles in a few popular movies, Mr. Downey could have been labeled box office poison for most of his career, better known for the poisons he was putting into his system than for his movies. But despite so many commercial strikes, Hollywood kept letting him play, and it finally paid off in 2008.

Wanted was a great movie … James McAvoy makes that movie different than most other action movies because he’s a real guy, and I feel most action movies don’t have that. But I wouldn’t just want to be in a mindless, blow-up movie. I’m not into it.”

Is District 9's Neill Blomkamp next in line to direct The Hobbit?

After Guillermo Del Toro's departure from The Hobbit, producers have been scrambling to find a replacement. TheOneRing.net is now reporting that District 9 director Neill Blomkamp could very well be tapped to helm the project.

MrCere at TheOneRing.net recently reported that there's a strong chance Blomkamp is in the running to direct the live-action version of J.R.R. Tolkien's short-person epic:

In short we know from lots of sources:

1. Jackson doesn't want to do it

2. He wants somebody he trusts and can be sure of

3. Casting is happening now

4. Pre-pre-production is happening now

5. MGM and Warners need a talent in place yesterday

6. The platform for making a big genre splash announcement is approaching

7. The schedule fits with rumors from many sources
8. Many spies are sounding similar notes
9. One tells us they have seen the film breakdown with Blomkamp directing

So is Neill Blomkamp going to direct "The Hobbit"? Could be. My personal opinion is that this information is correct.

We certainly admire Blomkamp's work on District 9, but The Hobbit would be a daunting project for even the most seasoned auteur. Then again, Peter Jackson began his Middle Earth career primarily known as a director of totally oddball genre films (see: Bad Taste, The Frighteners , Dead Alive), so that's precedent at least.

Is being fat in Hollywood bankable?

On the A&E show "Kirstie Alley's Big Life," the star sits in bed, working on her laptop and talking to her kids about her weight. "Does it upset you that I'm fat?" she asks them. "No," they both reply, the end of the word going up slightly the way it does in uncomfortable situations.

"Slightly?" she says. "It's never embarrassing?"

The kids - 17-year-old son True and 15-year-old daughter Lillie - look down and say no again.

"You're not -" True begins, and Alley finishes his sentence: " - circus fat?"

Welcome to the era of the fat celebrity. No longer is it shameful, shocking or a career killer for the famous to make weight struggles the centerpiece of their lives. In fact, they're making money off of it.

And we can't get enough.

In addition to Alley's show, we have:

"Carnie Wilson: Unstapled," in which cameras follow the singer-performer-author as she goes about her life. They chronicle, among other things, her efforts to lose the weight she gained after bariatric surgery and after giving birth to two children. She complains to her trainer that stretching hurts, frets to her sex therapist that she doesn't feel desirable and worries that her young daughter Lola is becoming a little too fond of sugar.

"Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp," a reality show that pits a bottomless pool of chubby D-list notables against one another to see who can drop the most pounds through rigorous diet and exercise. Put through their paces by tough-but-lovable trainer Harvey Walden IV, some lose weight, some maintain and a few actually gain during the show.

Eliza Dushku: "Don't hold your breath for a Dollhouse movie"

Joss Whedon's beloved-but-cancelled series Firefly was adapted into the movie Serenity after it got the axe, so will his follow-up show Dollhouse also get the big-screen treatment?

The show's star warns fans not to get excited.

"You never know, but I don't think so," Eliza Dushku told TVFIX. "We really felt it was sad we didn't get to go on and tell more stories, but it was rewarding we were able to wrap up the second season with closure."

That said, Eliza admitted she'd jump at the chance to star in a Dollhouse movie — on the condition that Joss Whedon be involved (unlike that sure-to-be-awful potential Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot that was said to be going ahead without him).

Lindsay Lohan Drinks Too Much

Is Lindsay Lohan's Tea Partying Sabotaging Her SCRAM?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Rocking a SCRAM bracelet hasn't exactly been Lindsay Lohan's cup of tea. But, according to reports, her recent run-in with the law could have been due to her love for that particular beverage.

The 23-year-old alleged celebrity has been spotted around town with bottles of Kombucha tea, which the company claims contains only a trace of alcohol (less than .5 percent). But recently, Lilo's drink of choice was pulled from shelves at Whole Foods.

Why, you may ask?

Lohan's beloved beverage is now suspected of having more alcohol in it than the its label states, according to X17online.com. The exact amount of alcohol is being investigated.

But, could guzzling bottles of Kombucha really have set off Lohan's SCRAM the night of the MTV Awards, raising her blood-alcohol level to a reported .03-.04?

Kombucha's head honcho says no way.

I guess this is better than the "Someone spilled alcohol on my leg" excuse.

Potpourri post about Bollywood's sexiest dads...

DNA India names Arjun Rampal sexiest dad in India

Arjun Rampal, 2 daughters with supermodel wife Mehir

If there can be yummy mummies, there can certainly be dishy daddies. On Father's Day, After Hrs asked some of the beautiful women of Mumbai who they thought was the sexiest dad. There was close competition between actors Arjun Rampal, Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.

However, it was Arjun who edged past the other.

Jewellery designer Queenie Singh, who voted for Arjun, says, "He easily goes from being one of the best looking stars into a normal, loving father." Actor Soniya Mehra adds, "Apart from oozing sex appeal, Arjun portrays a very responsible side to him that is endearing." Television actor Barkha Bisht furthers, "Arjun does not try too hard to be sexy. He is at ease with himself and always comfortable with what he is doing."

Minor Twilight character becomes major player in movie promotion

(a.k.a Jane/Dakota > everyone in Twilight)

The Jane character in the Twilight books, though important to the plot, is minor (though you wouldn’t know it from how often Dakota Fanning appears doing “Eclipse” promo, and from the extra screen time her character enjoys in the film). From the franchise perspective, it makes all the sense in the world to have the heaviest hitters do promotion. But has the Jane connection to the original story been overstated in the films?

Collapse )
Why do you think that's the case? Is it due to her Hollywood prowess? Or because she is a PR goddess among a group of awkward & less media savvy co-stars? Or perhaps because Dakota Fanning is universally adored by the general public?

What do you think, ONTD?


HBIC Jane is amused.

Live-Action Akira Film Plans Get New Writer

The Collider.com movie news website interviewed producer Andrew Lazar (Jonah Hex, Space Cowboys, Get Smart) on the planned live-action Akira films, and Lazar revealed that his Akira team hired a new writer named Albert Torres to work with director Albert Hughes (Menace II Society, From Hell, The Book of Eli). Lazar said that Hughes is "off conceptualizing the movie with a bunch of visual artists" in pre-production development. When asked about the challenges of getting the project made as a big-budgeted, high-profile studio release, Lazar responded:

Akira happens to be something that Warner Brothers management loves. They see the value in the title. They see the value in the franchise, and what the underlying property meant. It's a pretty seminal piece. And so they think that, with a guy who is a visionary director like Albert Hughes, it's not pushing a boulder up the hill for Akira because, quite frankly, the studio is really enthusiastic about it.

Lazar also confirmed that the first film will cover Katsuhiro Otomo's first three Akira manga volumes, and the next three volumes will be covered "hopefully, if we're fortunate enough to do a second one."

Screenwriter Gary Whitta was previously attached to the project, which actor Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, The Aviator) is producing through his Appian Way production company. According to ComingSoon.net, Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby also worked on the films' scripts before Torres was hired.
