In the anime, Kei is a member of an anti-government faction and becomes the essential love interest of biker gang leader Kaneda (Garrent Hudlund).
The film takes place in neo-Manhattan, It appears to be building towards an all white cast. Why eve bother calling it Akira anymore
I’ve enjoyed almost every “whoa” the man has uttered in everything from Bill and Ted to the Lake House, but the only word to describe him being cast in Akira would be: BOGUS!
General fan consensus is that the movie will both suck and blow at the same time, but it appears that some new interesting news might change those feelings.
