Scooped on Friday, July 15, 2011
Orphan and Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra is now talking with his friends at Warner Bros. about directing Akira. According to Variety, the studio has brought down the working budget of the picture from $150 million (when Albert Hughes was developing it) to now around $90 million dollars.
The project is still using the draft written by Albert Torres with polishes by Steve Kloves (the Harry Potter film series) and Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Iron Man).
