Doesn't have to be Merchant Ivory. Could be a Tim Burton movie with Johnny Depp as one of the 3 kids. Or maybe all 3.

What really throws me is that they've changed Kai's name but Kaneda and Tetsuo are the same at the moment. Are they going to do a Robert Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder or Fisher Stevens in Short Circuit and try to make Garrett Hedlund look Japanese?

*Puts hand up* I don't want to see this.

Why change so bloody much and yet have the gall to still call it Akira? It's clearly not a remake.

I'm with CT on the name change, 'tis odd. :? Sure if that's the case why not turn Kaneda into Canada, Tetsuo into Terry and Akira into Ciara?

It makes more sense to change the names considering they have changed everything else. Utterly agree. But these people seem either clueless or just don't care.
