Tetsuo from Akira

Warner Brothers’ live-action adaptation of Akira has been development hell for the better part of 15 years. Going through numerous directors, the film looked like it would never get out of it. But new reports say Get Out director Jordan Peele may be the person to step in and helm the film.

According to The Tracking Board, insiders say that WB is “moving aggressively” towards inking a deal with Peele to direct the film. This coming off Get Out, which was his directorial debut. Apparently, the studio was thinking about having Peele direct The Flash, but Akira is a top priority for the studio, and it looks like discussions between the two have been “encouraging.” More on the story below.

Movie Review: Jordan Peele's Get Out

Get Out

Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 103 Minutes

Whether it’s Rosemary’s Baby, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, or Videodrome, the best horror films act as subversive social commentaries, dealing with humanity’s fears on a subconscious level and offering a kind of communal catharsis.

In his 1981 non-fiction book, Danse Macabre, author Stephen King states that the horror genre can “serve as an extraordinarily accurate barometer of those things which trouble the night-thoughts of a whole society.” George A. Romero’s landmark 1968 film, Night of the Living Dead, for example, was rife with racial commentary during the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

Keanu the Cat

Keanu
Director: Peter Atencio
Screenwriter: Jordan Peele, Alex Rubens
Cast: Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Method Man, Luis Guzmán, Nia Long, Will Forte, Tiffany Haddish, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Jamar Malachi Neighbors, Jason Mitchell
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R | 100 Minutes
Release Date: April 29, 2016

“We in the market right now for, like, a gangster pet.”

Directed by Peter Atencio (Key & Peele, The Last Man on Earth), Keanu is the age-old story of two friends who pose as ruthless gangbangers to retrieve a stolen kitten named Keanu, which – as we all know – is Hawaiian for “cool breeze over the mountains.”

Jordan Peele stars as Rell, a soft-spoken stoner whose life is forever changed when the most precious of kittens shows up at his doorstep. A graphic artist, Rell makes little Keanu the subject of his next artistic endeavor: a calendar where the kitten plays assorted characters from iconic movies like The Shining, Heat, and New Jack City. But when Cheddar (Method Man), the leader of the notorious 17th Street Blips, steals the cat, Rell and his straight-laced cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) are forced into action.

Thought this wasn’t always the plan. In fact, it wasn’t until Reeves actually saw a trailer for the movie that he reached out to see if he could help out at all.
