Live-Action Akira Film's Opening Storyboards Posted

Storyboard artist Jeffrey Errico posts opening title sequence for Warner Bros.' planned film

Jeffrey Errico, a storyboard artist who worked on the live-action film adaptation of Katsuhiro Ōtomo's Akira manga, has posted his storyboards for the opening title sequence for the planned film.

In January, the entertainment trade magazine Variety and the film news website Deadline both reported that Warner Bros.' adaptation of the manga is not finished, even though the film's pre-production has been shut down.

Variety had added in January that Warner Bros. wants the current script draft, which was written by David James Kelly, to be reworked.

Warner Bros. officially green-lit the film for production last October with director Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan, House of Wax). When the project was originally announced in 2008, it was intended to be the directorial debut for Ireland's Ruairi Robinson. Actor Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, The Aviator) is producing through his Appian Way production company.

Thanks to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.
