Warner Bros.' Live-Action AKIRA Movie Is Currently Stalled...AGAIN

Warner Bros.' Live-Action AKIRA Movie Is Currently Stalled...AGAIN

Director Jaume Collet-Serra says that Warner Bros.' live-action Akira movie is currently dead in the water. Is this on again, off again project now officially dead?

While at a junket for his new movie, Run All Night, director Jaume Collet-Serra says that development on the live-action Akira movie has stalled. Just last year, Collet-Serra was reportedly actively developing the project but he told Collider that he's going to take a break after filming Non-Stop and Run All Night back-to-back.  With that news in mind, is the live-action Akira movie officially dead? Collet-Serra says that he's unsure and that it's something that WB must decide.  However, if the project does begin anew, it sounds as if Collet-Serra won't be directing as he's a bit burned out after directing two films in three years.  Back in January 2012, Warner Bros. shutdown production on the live-action Akira film, despite securing a talented cast that included Garret Hedlund, Ken Watanabe, Helena Bonham Carter and  Kristen Stewart.
