The adaptation of the classic manga has been in production limbo since WB acquired the rights back in 2002.

Over the years a lot of Hollywood names have (allegedly) been attached to the project; Keanu Reeves, Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart just to name a few, only for their names to fade into obscurity again.

Jaume Collet-Serra – who was supposedly in line to direct – appeared to have left the project as well.

Now new rumors have surfaced that WB is planning to do an Akira trilogy with none other than Christopher Nolan involved. Could this be Nolan’s next film, which has been announced for a July 2017 release?

Keep an eye on Gamegeekz.eu for any updates.
