Will DiCaprio Ruin Anime In America?

As you may have heard, Leonardo DiCaprio is working on live action re-makes to Ninja Scroll and Akira. The good news is that he recently stated that he won’t be starring in either film. The bad news is that you just know he’s gonna screw it up in a most hard core fashion. Here’s what he had to say in a recent interview with MTV.

“We’re waiting for the final draft of the script [for 'Akira'],” DiCaprio told MTV. “I’m a big fan of Japanese anime — that and another project called ‘Ninja Scroll’ we’re trying to get developed and made into a movie, and I know there a lot of loyal fans out there of the project and die-hard fans, so we’re going to try to do the best job we possibly can and we’re not going to make the movie until the script is in the right shape.”

This cartoon just popped up on Youtube showing all the fears that fans have of an American Adaptation:

Of course, if they do pull it off, imagine how cool this would look in live action:

I’m optimistic. I’ve heard before DiCaprio is a fan and what fan would want to see it butchered. …and I must admit, I do like his movies. Never seen Titanic, though. Something tells me I’d probably hate him after watching that.

So was JMS and look what he did to Ghost Rider and Daredevil (granted, DD director’s cut wasn’t that bad)
