The moment new was out that they are planning to make a remake of Akira. It has been really off putting. Why do they even want to try?

Steve Kloves will be writing the live action script for Akira. The film is set to be directed by the horrible Hughes brothers. The remake will be something to miss out on if it is going to be these guys making the film. The cast has not been looked at and we will not really care for this news in the coming weeks.
