The Akira Project launched an Indiegogo campaign in 2012 to fund the creation of a fan trailer for a live-action version of Akira. The beloved anime film seems ripe to translate to the live-action medium, and though Hollywood will probably get around to making that happen, these fans decided to get to it sooner.
They crafted a five minute glimpse at what Akira could look like as a live-action film, and man, it’s really good. It features Osric Chau – you know, Kevin on Supernatural – and the production quality is top-notch. I want to see a couple more hours of this imagining.
Watch the trailer after the break.
