Ragnarok's Taika Waititi Would Cast Asian Leads For Akira — Thor

For Waititi, there's only one way to approach the issue of casting.

"Yeah, I'd probably want to take it a bit back more towards the books." he added on, nodding to the six-volume manga collection the Akira anime film is based on.

Waititi's self confessed good luck charm - House - said that she didn't know what to expect walking into the premiere screening. Asian teenagers would be the way to do it for me and probably no, not, like no name, I mean sort of unfound, untapped talent. Love the movie, but I would not do a remake of the movie.

For now, the director seems to be keeping his options open regarding the movie, and since Thor: Ragnarok looks set to be a huge hit, he'll have no shortage of career options.

Nearly a month after a report surfaced that Taika Waititi was in talks to helm Warner Bros.' long-planned adaptation of Akira, the Thor: Ragnarok director remains coy about his potential involvement. "And, yeah, so anyway there's been some chats [about him directing it]". The anime is rightly considered a groundbreaking piece of work and helped popularize anime in the West.

The Akira remake is a project that seems permanently trapped in development hell, but if any filmmaker could tackle it -and do a great job - then it would be Taika Waititi.

The unfortunate state of the current Hollywood studio system means "Akira" fans have every right to be worried over whether or not the studio will whitewash the movie and cast caucasian actors in roles written for Japanese performers. Assuming a deal does stick, though, the latter noted that his version of Akira would be more loyal to the source material, as opposed to Katsuhiro Otomo's decorated sci-fi flick of '88. (Yeah plus Tetsuo teleports to the moon and blasts a new crater in it, which is delightful, but there are also drug-fueled sex-slave orgies ... which is decidedly less delightful.) We'd also get proper characterizations for Lady Miyako, Joker, and Kei's much-better storyline should the manga be adapted. Time will tell if the project moves forward this time, but given the fate of previous attempts at Akira, it's best not to get any hopes up just yet.
