Das Akira Project arbeitet derzeit an einer Realverfilmung von Akira in Form eines Trailers und finanzieren das Vorhaben über IndieGoGo. Das Poster sieht schonmal okayish bis gut aus, was daraus wird, bleibt abzuwarten, bis jetzt hat mich noch jeder Fanfilm zu Akira enttäuscht.

We are creating a live action fan trailer based on the renowned manga "Akira". Ever since Kodansha first published the manga in 1982, Hollywood has been interested in adapting it into a feature film. In 2002, Warner Bros acquired the rights to the film and has tried four times to make production happen. Each effort was cancelled for various technical, budgetary and casting reasons; most recently in January 2011 with the story location moved from Neo-Tokyo to Neo-Manhattan.

We, as fans, felt like we ought to take a shot at making our own adaptation. A chance to stick as close to the source material as possible. A chance to do Akira Justice.

[update 7.8.2016] Hier der fertige Trailer:

The Akira Project is a crowd-sourced, non-profit project meant to create a live action fan trailer of AKIRA, the renowned manga-turned-anime film from the late 1980′s; a stunning example of both mediums as art forms. While Hollywood has been working on a live-action Akira movie for a few years now, we, as fans, wanted to take a shot at making our own adaptation. A chance to stick as close to the source material as possible. A chance to do Akira Justice.

We launched an Indiegogo campaign in July 2012 as part of a crowd sourcing effort to make this project come to life. Many people contributed not just financially but offered their time and talent to help the production that was shot in Montreal, Quebec from November 2-5th 2012. What started out as a simple idea between two guys having a beer (Hey! It'd be cool to see Kaneda ride his bike around Neo-Tokyo!), became a global endeavour, filled with adventures and hurdles, involving more than 40 artists in 12 different countries.

After a year and a half in post-production, we are proud to present the project to Akira fans the world over. We hope to have done justice to the timeless work of Katsuhiro Otomo and look forward to, someday, seeing the full scope of the Akira story translated to the big screen as a live-action.
