Live-action anime adaption roundup: Akira + Attack on Titan

Daredevil showrunner to write screenplay for live-action Akira

Lol anyone remember this?

  • Marco Ramirez (writer and producer on the Daredevil and Sons of Anarchy TV series) will be writing a screenplay for Warner Bros' proposed live-action Akira movie.

  • Ramirez has also written for the Orange Is The New Black and Da Vinci's Demons TV series. Doug Petrie and him were also promoted to showrunners of the upcoming second season of Daredevil by Marvel Studios.

  • The Akira live-action project, which was announced in 2008, was intended to be the directorial debut for Ireland's Ruairi Robinson. Through the Appian Way production company, Leonardo Dicaprio was also attached to the production of the project. Gary Whitta, Mark Fergus, Hawk Ostby, Albert Torres were also attached to the project as screenwriters.

  • In October 2011, Warner gave director Jaume Collett Serra (Unknown, Orphan, House of Wax) the approval  to begin filming in February or March 2012. Warner had talks with Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Ken Watanabe and Helena Bonham Carter to star in the film.

  • In January 2012, production was shut down. The project was stalled by Warner to revise the script so it would be less costly.

  • The original science-fiction action manga, Akira (by Katsuhiro Otomo) is set in Neo-Tokyo, a city rebuilt after being destroyed in a mysterious explosion. The early proposals by Warner Bros showed that the story's setting was changed to "New Manhattan", "a city rebuilt after being destroyed 31 years ago".
