Albert Hughes walks away from Akira
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
It was a bit too good to be true. Book of Eli helmer Albert Hughes was preparing to take on directorial duties for Warner Bros. planned live adaptation of Akira. Not anymore.
This is a bit of a bummer. Although I’m not convinced that Akira is the best anime property to turn into live action, like others poor choices before, it was at least in very talented hands with regard to direction. The plan is to still fast track this film into theaters so the idea is that we’ll find out who will be filling in the role of Director within a reasonable amount of time. Great, now they have to find a cast and a director.
