Unused AKIRA Concept Art Featuring Kaneda & Cityscapes Of New Manhattan

Warner Bros. has tried numerous times to make a live-action remake of Katsuhiro Ohtomo's Akira, so at this time I don't know which incarnation these are for. What I can tell you is that it was created by Brazilian artist, Rodolfo Damaggio. Check it out!



Just a year ago, Warner Bros. live-action take on Akira, starring Kristen Stewart (Twilight) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), appeared to be moving forward, but several concerns arose that lead to the project being shutdown indefinitely. That version would've been directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan), but he isn't the only director to take a crack at Akira. Before Jaume, there was Albert Hughes (Book Of Eli & From Hell) and even Irish short film director, Ruairi Robinson.

Even though WB has been unsuccessful with their live-action version we at least have some concept art from the defunct project. These new images that have surfaced on Rodolfo Damaggio's ((Hulk, Iron Man, & Green Lantern) website give us a much better idea of the look of the film, whichever version it was for. There are a trio of cityscapes depicting "New Manhattan" and one of the film's protagonist, Kaneda. Enjoy!
