Hughes Brothers have come out and said that there us no truth to the Efron rumors and that he has not been cast nor has he been asked to play Kaneda.

The fact that Efron might not be in the movie: no.

The fact that you just doused yourself with gasoline on a forum full of people who enjoy sometimes extremely violent cartoons: yes.

Not yet. Corbin Bleu is still up for the role.

And he's already ruined the name of one beautiful thing.

Where did you find that?

Because when I go to the movie I don't want to have to scream "STFU!" to the little girls screaming when he's in a close up during my movie.

I read on Wikipedia that Tetsuo would be renamed Travis. I pray that this is just someone playing a practical joke and messing with the info on Wikipedia.

My experience tells me this is no joke. Look at all the other anime characters played by non Japanese actors. Guyver, Fist of the North Star, and Dragonball for example were all made into live action movies and not one of them had showed respect to the character's original ethnicity.

This is already doomed in my book. Let Japanese characters be played by Japanese actors as I always say. I refuse to ever see an anime based Hollywood movie for this reason.

No live action Hollywood anime movie has been a remake. It's all an adaptation. They just like the story line and go off that because not one person anymore has any kind of ideas. I agree Kankokujin, this movie is doooooomed.

Hmm, and a hint of Silence of the Lambs? Or am I becoming too gruesome? LOL

but anyway, I think I'm going to see the Akira movie, but not expect anything cool from it, UNLESS the trailer proves to me otherwise. We don't know, maybe it will be strictly like the movie but in live action. Let's maybe stay positive? XD

Hey, do they have director for it yet?

Um...considering my lack of faith in humanity as a whole, let alone Hollywood, I'm gonna go with meeting new people at ACen. Besides, why deprive the world of what would be sure to be an awesome rifftrax?

Anybody know if they ever did anything for the Dragonball live action?

No, but it's been suggested on their forums.

The Last Airbender one they just did was amazing.
