A project that has been in development for quite a while, ‘Akira’ has finally been assigned a release date. The movie adaptation is to be directed by Taika Waititi, the New Zealand filmmaker.

‘Akira’: the flick will be helmed by Taika Waititi

After having been in the pipeline for 15 years, ‘Akira’ finally seems to be moving forward. Warner Bros. Studios recently received some financial facilities to produce the movie and is planning to premiere it on May 21, 2021 in US theatres. Taika Waititi has been attached to the project since 2017 and will be helming.

The Warner Bros. movie is based on a manga

Appearing in the pages of Young Magazine from 1982 until 1990, ‘Akira’ made its way to the US via the Marvel Comics. The manga became one of the first to be translated into English. Taika Waititi in partnership with Warner Bros. will be adapting its storyline which takes place in the dystopian city of Tokyo. The plot focuses on Shotaro Kaneda and his gang of teenage bikers.

Previous adaptations of the Japanese literary work

Furthermore, ‘Akira’ was previously adapted for the big screen in what is considered as “one of the greatest animated and science fiction films of all time”. It featured pioneering animation and an expensive budget at the time. Video games were also released such as ‘Akira Psycho Ball’ for the PlayStation 2.

Other films directed by the New Zealand filmmaker

Since his success with ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, Taika Waititi is a highly sought-after director. He is presently working on ‘Jojo Rabbit’ which will launch in theatres later in 2019. His other credits include ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’ and ‘Boy’.
