Live Action STEVE is Dead! Long Live AKIRA!
Angry Zen Minion Paoken writes in with news that the live action Akira film, known as STEVE to everyone who knows me, has been shelved.
Unfortunately, because the rights are still out there, this doesn’t mean that the project is dead. We’ll never see the horrendous version that somehow got producers excited for this incarnation of the film, but I expect it’ll rear it’s ugly, revisionist head sometime in the future. My hope is that when it does, the producers will remember how much we hated this news and at least cast the thing with some Asian people. Or at least rename the fucker if they still don’t want Asian people.
