A Peek at Live-Action "Akira" Film Storyboards

Unused storyboard from Sylvain Despretz's 2008 work

Before Akira went back to the budget drawing boards, before Jaume Collet-Serra was attached to direct, before Albert Hughes was in line to helm the project, sci-fi short direct Ruairi Robinson was going to step up to take the classic anime/manga to the big screen. A pair of concept storyboards have been unearthed from that iteration of the project.

 

From concept artist Sylvain Despretz's (Gladiator, Alien Resurrection) 2008 work on the project.
