Twitch continues to ping-pong actors for Warner Bros. Pictures’ Akira reporting that Ken Watanabe (Inception, Batman Begins) has been offered the role of The Colonel in Jaume Collet-Serra’s adaptation. They state that Gary Oldman and Warners were unable to close a deal.
We won’t even bother attempting to explain who is in talks for the role of Tetsuo, you’ll have to click here for that info.
Right now the only confirmed role is Kenada, who will come to life courtesy of Tron Legacy star Garrett Hedlund.
“Akira” originated in 1988 as a manga and then as an animated film co-written and directed by Katsuhiro Otomo. Set in New Manhattan, the cyberpunk sci-fi epic follows the leader of a biker gang who must save his friend, discovered with potentially destructive psychokinetic abilities, from government medical experiments.
