Twilight's Kristen Stewart Offered Role as Kei in "Akira"

Kaneda's love interest in live-action adaptation may be found

In a role we previously thought might be more suitable for Keira Knightley, Twitch reports that Twilight's Kristen Stewart has been offered the role of Kei in Warner Bros. upcoming live-action Akira film.

 

Twitch describes the role as "a young medium who becomes the love interest for Kaneda," the latter being played by Tron Legacy's Garrett Hedlund.
