More AKIRA Concept Art From Warner Bros. Defunct Live-Action Remake

More artwork from Warner Bros. live-action remake of Katsuhiro Ohtomo's Akira has surfaced online. Hit the jump to see concept art depicting the unusual sets, and scenes involving Kaneda and Tetsuo.



If you've been following the saga of Warner Bros. failed attempt to make a live-action remake of Akira, you will know that the studio has gone through at least three directors. Below you you will see concept art that Tommy Lee Edwards created for Albert Hughes' ("The Book of Eli") version. Then there is Tim Flattery's artwork, which I believe was intended for Irish short film director, Ruairi Robinson. Lastly, there is Rodolfo Dimaggio artwork of Tetsuo's big finale, the bowling alley, the freeway, Ducati Demolitore, and the Marquee bar. I'm speculating, but the art seems to fit with Jaume Collet-Serra's ("Orphan") vision.

Kaneda is a bar owner in Neo-Manhattan who is stunned when his brother, Tetsuo, is abducted by government agents led by The Colonel. Desperate to get his brother back, Kaneda agrees to join with Ky Reed and her underground movement who are intent on revealing to the world what truly happened to New York City thirty years ago when it was destroyed. Kaneda believes their theories to be ludicrous but after finding his brother again, is shocked when he displays telekinetic powers.

Ky believes Tetsuo is headed to release a young boy, Akira, who has taken control of Tetsuo’s mind. Kaneda clashes with The Colonel’s troops on his way to stop Tetsuo from releasing Akira but arrives too late. Akira soon emerges from his prison courtesy of Tetsuo as Kaneda races in to save his brother before Akira once again destroys Manhattan island, as he did thirty years ago.
