Rumors are circulating that the Hughes Brothers' next project could be a live-action remake of Akira. But they don't just want one film — the Warner Brothers picture is planned as a two-parter.
New York Magazine says Warners is in negotiations with the Albert and Allen Hughes to direct a live-action remake of Otomo's cult classic manga Akira. The script is from Iron Man and Children of Men writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. Which, last we heard, was being tweaked by the team last September, after Ruairi Robinson left the picture.
