up the role of fellow protagonist Kaneda (a name that, thanks to the anime version, we can only ever pronounce by screaming it aloud when talking about it.)

So true. :lol:

I'm guessing everyone will be delighted with this!

Well he has the same number of syllables in his first name, so it's a start. :roll:

Thing is, why do they say they're being cast as Kaneda and Tetsuo? Is the gang they're in going to be a gang brought together by the fact their American parents gave them all Japanese names?

Bingo. I don't get that at all. Apart from the obvious NO! reaction to him being in this, the age seems very odd.
Mind you, they've been linking him with Cowboy Bebop live action for ages, so maybe this is just uninspired casting.

I've a feeling this is gonna be one of those movies that keeps going back and forth, then just get a sudden spark of life that has it in the cinema quickly enough.

I liked the last panel of last week's Anime News Nina with their casting choice

Warners had a deadline to greenlight Akira, and so they have.

The fact they had the deadline makes me think of the Roger Corman Fantastic Four film

The story has been updated to say Garrett Hedlund has been offered the Kaneda role, or rather the bike gang leader.
Also Gary Oldman is supposed to have been offered the part of the Colonel and Helena Bonham Carter the part of Lady Miyako.

And he's used to the shape of the bike from his time in Tron Legacy

I thought I saw something on Kiera Knightley being given a role too.

Yeah, though don't know which role she was offered. I would guess it would be Kei.

Well looks like Keira won't be Kei. Kristen Stewart has been offered that role apparently
