    As per The California Film Commission's statements, Warner Bros.' live-action Akira film will shoot entirely in California and receive a tax credit of US$18.5 million.The project is scheduled to shoot on 71 days of filming in California.


    It was previously confirmed in an April 2018 interview that Director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) was working on the project. Waititi has not confirmed whether or not he is the director on the project.


    Entertainment news website Deadline previously described the project's story as taking place "in the rebuilt New Manhattan where a leader of a biker gang saves his friend from a medical experiment."

    I doubt Warner Bros can handle a classic like Akira.

    Won't judge before a trailer is out but I'm guessing they'll dumb it down some notches.
