AceShowbiz - It looks like an "Akira" movie won't be coming in the near future as Jaume Collet-Serra has confirmed that production on the live-action film has been stalled. The news came a year after the film director confirmed he was working on the adaptation of "Akira" for Warner Bros.
In fact, at a junket for his new movie "Run All Night", Collet-Serra opened up to Collider that no development had been made on the planned feature. "No, no. There's nothing," so he responded to question of the progress he'd made on "Akira".
"A vacation! I truly will not make a decision on a movie for a few months because I've done these two movies in three years without any time off so I cannot wait for this movie to come out and just fade away," Collet-Serra explained further when referring to his desire to have some time off after filming "Non-Stop" and "Run All Night" back-to-back for the past three years.
"So my next movie's not gonna be for a while, let's put it this way," he added. When asked further if it's still possible for "Akira" to be developed, he answered, "It's a Warner Bros. question."
