Actor Paul Dano Confirms Reading for Live-Action Akira

posted on by Egan Loo

Actor Paul Dano confirmed with Indiewire's The Playlist blog that he read for the (renamed) part of Tetsuo in the planned live-action Akira film. He acknowledged going through an audition with the director, as well as meeting with different filmmakers. He added, "The only way that movie would be worthwhile would be if someone like Rian Johnson did it or something, that's the version they should make." Danno worked with Johnson in the director's Looper film.

Warner Brothers shut down pre-production on the film adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira manga while the script is being reworked.
