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.

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.
