Taika Waititi Would Not Whitewash Akira

Published

on

Director Taika Waititi has been in talks to direct the live-action movie of the cult classic Akira. Warner Bros has been trying to adapt the Anime based on manga of the same name for years. Now it seems that the Thor: Ragnarok director could be the one to bring it to life.

IGN asked the director during a press junket if he was going to direct Akira. “I am — that was more or less a rumor. There was, I mean, I was in talks to do that, for sure, and something that I was very passionate about — am passionate about.” said Waititi “I actually love the books. Love the movie, but I would not do a remake of the movie. I would do an adaptation of the books,” Waititi said, adding, “And, yeah, so anyway there’s been some chats [about him directing it].”

There has been a lot of backlash with Hollywood whitewashing from Exodus to Ghost In The Shell. Warner Bros. has been trying to get the property off the ground with white actors rumored for previous versions, Tobey Mcguire, Leonardo DiCapro, and Garrett Hedlund were all set to play the roles of Japanese characters.

Waititi said he would not white wash any of characters. “Yeah. actually Asian teenagers would be the way to do it for me and probably no, not, like no name, I mean sort of unfound, untapped talent. Yeah, I’d probably want to take it a bit back more towards the books.” Waititi later added that he meant “all” the books in the six-volume manga series.

Published

on

Rick and Morty’s creators are gearing up for a historic run for the series.

After long negotiations that pushed back season 4, Adult Swim has renewed the show for 70 episodes. Now with the deal in place fans won’t have to wait 18 months between seasons.

Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland spoke to Polygon about the impact of the new deal. “We‘re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security,” Roiland said. ”Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer’s room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster. We’re not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.”

Fans still have to wait a couple of months for the fourth season. Rick and Morty’s fourth season may not debut until late 2019.
