Jaume Collet-Serra Talks About Live-Action Akira Development
The live-action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo’s anime/manga property Akira is fraught with hurdles and various delays, resulting in many fans to lose confidence that they will ever see the project completed. However, it seems like a tiny glimmer of hope has shone on the development as Director Jaume Collet-Serra (who replaced Albert Hughes in 2012 before leaving the project as well due to budget constraints) has returned to talks last summer after his schedule has opened up.
During ther during the press meetings for Non-Stop, Collet-Serra discussed his current thinking on Akira.
In an interview with Coming Soon confirmed “I’m still working on “Akira,” so that’s part of my life. (laughs).”
