Oddly enough, I have no problem with Justin Timberlake.  He's actually surprisingly solid as an actor.  As for Robert Pattinson, I haven't seen anything with him since Harry Potter 4, so I have no idea if he can act or not.

It just seems odd to choose a list of the whitest of white guys and still put the names "Tetsuo" and "Kaneda" in the same sentence.

In fact, it feels odd to call the movie "Akira" when the setting is in "New Manhattan".


I guess that also means that if they actually adapted it, say, ala the way Scorcese adapted Infernal Affairs, I wouldn't have as much of an issue with it, but as it stands it just feels so culturally off.

There are so many questions.

Like, if this is going to be based on the manga, rather than the film, who's going to replace the Americans (who turn up in book three or four and start trying to assassinate Akira and Tetsuo before etc. etc. spoilers etc.)? Is it just going to be...the Americans? Like their own government? Because that changes the plot quite a lot. Like the relationship between the Colonel and the Americans, how is that going to be handled?

I mean, don't get me wrong, the idea of a new adaptation of Akira has some legs. The Manga is a monumental work, six volumes of about five hundred pages each, beautifully drawn and well plotted. The anime film, though excellent (particularly in terms of soundtrack and visual flair) Only really takes the story to the end of the second book (then ranges a few fragments of the third and fourth in) and leaves it all rather mangled, which is a large source of the 'WTF factor'. The story also benefits a lot from the deepened characterisations of people like The Colonel and Joker (who barely even appears and doesn't speak in the film), Lady Miyazako (who also barely appears, as a completely different character), Tetsuo's sinister aide-de-campe, and of course Chiyoko.

But this is going to be shitting dreadful.

I have to concur, any film that casts people like Pattinson and Timberlake is very clearly trying to release to the broadest possible audience, otherwise known as the mainstream. The American movie industry has regularly fallen down when trying to deliver Science Fiction to the mainstream with other than the simplest of scenarios and the same can be said of extra-national cultural storylines. Attempting both with what I would guess is a percieved need to pursue heavy simplification is unlikely to be successful from a quality point of view.

It's a pity because I suspect that the American audience is a lot smarter than the industry gives them credit for. That said, the fiasco of The Madness of King George does call for much psyducking.

It's being directed by the Hughes Brothers and they're aiming for a PG13 rating. That was literally all I needed to hear before clocking out. 

Honestly, I didn't mind so much when DiCaprio was attached to it as his track record is absolutely fantastic.  But yeah, we'll see where this ends up going.  I want to see a trailer for this, I really do.

 I think this would be a good role for Justin Timberlake to really step up as an actor. It could go both ways, but he can definitely act.

 However, the correct choice for Tetsuo and Kaneda would obviously be Cillian Murphy and James Franco.

Supposedly, it's a myth that they changed the title because Americans would think 'The Madness of George III' was a sequel. Apparently the reason for the switch to 'The Madness of King George' was to sell the fact that George II was a king up-front, though given when George III reigned you'd have though most educated Americans would have some idea who he was.

As for why switch the medium, I think you could fairly argue that the original film didn't do the plot or the overarching themes of the manga justice. That's no reason to remake it live action of course. Its natural format for the screen would be a six-episode high-budget OVA, or a 13 episode series. Anything longer than that might be pushing it, but there's parts particularly of the 3rd to 5th books that need to be quite still and atmospheric. That said the entire 6th book is mostly one big hyper-mutating trans-dimensional punch-up, so...

Wasn't aware of the urban myth. I'd always understood that the change was to confirm for American audiences that the film was about a king because exits on early screenings reported that they hadn't been aware of this going in. Apparently any promotional imagery such as trailers and the like weren't sufficient. It seems rather incongruous that you'd go to a film without any forewarning and come out unpleasantly surprised that it centred around a member of European royalty. Still, some people were even caught off guard by Snakes On A Plane so maybe not that surprising.

Perhaps the studio will need to change the name of Akira to something like "Japanese Headfuck Conspiracy Post-Apocalyptic Wierdness So STFU If You Haven't Seen The Animated Version You Clueless Fucks".

My friend was wondering how they were going to include the themes from the original into this. All I could do was stare blankly at him for a while.

Are we already comparing it to Dragonball?  Ow.  I was hoping that it would turn out to be like Resident Evil.  Horrible but at least watchable. We are all going to compare it to the original and in that respect it is going to suck.  The question is whether it's going to be an enjoyable popcorn flick.

if I recall correctly, lots of movies film in Vancouver for some kind of complicated tax reason or something. Doesn't mean they will be actually filming the city, I would imagine a movie like this will be filmed largely in studios and on soundstages and in front of green screens and the like. Where it films will probably end up being irrelevant to everyone except those who are keeping the project on budget.
