Hollywood adaptation of AKIRA on hold

The much anticipated resurgence of the Hollywood adaptation of AKIRA may be going into hiatus once again.

Under Warner Bros., the movie has been in pre-production for a few years, suffering several major delays due to changes in director.

In 2011 Jaume Collet-Serra was chosen to direct, whose directing credits include House of Wax, Orphan, and Unknown.

During a recent interview for his latest film Run All Night, director Collet-Serra was asked if any progress has been made on AKIRA, to which he replied: “No, no. There’s nothing.”

He added that he has been making movies nonstop for the past few years, that it won’t be for a while until he’s ready to go back to work again.

When asked if AKIRA is going to get released at all, he replied that “it’s a Warner Bros. question.”
