A live-action Akira Movie is planning to be released in summer 2009. Andrew Lazar, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jennifer Davisson will produce the film. The film is set in a New Manhattan, a city rebuilt by Japanese money after being destroyed 31 years ago. No announcement has been made regarding the cast, although it is reported that DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be playing the lead roles of Kaneda and Tetsuo, respectively.

It will be interesting because I heard they will be making two separate films, one for the first three volumes of the Manga, and one for the last three volumes. They're not really trying to recreate the old movie.

Dicaprio has no interest in acting in the Akira movie. He's Producing both NinjaScroll and the Akira movie. About the NinjaScroll movie, it is said that Dicaprio wants a cast with japanese people. In an interview he professed to be a big fan of both Akira and Ninja Scroll, and added...

"I know there a lot of loyal fans out there of the project and die-hard fans, so we're going to try to do the best job we possibly can and we're not going to make the movie until the script is in the right shape."

Not sure if he'll still be acting in it, but it's stated that he has no interest in acting in them, and that he wants a cast with japanese actors/actress.

i have no idea what Akira is about, but anime turned into live-action doesn't suit well with me. =|
i hope that they do good with this though if they decide to push through with this project.
