Time for a little grain of salt warning. We may or may not have the synopsis for the live action AKIRA film. If this shit is legit, then I am down for this setup. It follows the plot of the original Akira. Not sure about the change that makes him and Tetsuo brothers instead of buddies but whatever. At least they aren’t fucking with the mechanics of the story.
Check it out:
“Kaneda is a bar owner in Neo-Manhattan who is stunned when his brother, Tetsuo, is abducted by government agents led by The Colonel,” begins the breakdown.
Desperate to get his brother back, Kaneda agrees to join with Ky Reed and her underground movement who are intent on revealing to the world what truly happened to New York City thirty years ago when it was destroyed. Kaneda believes their theories to be ludicrous but after finding his brother again, is shocked when he displays telekinetic powers.
Ky believes Tetsuo is headed to release a young boy, Akira, who has taken control of Tetsuo’s mind. Kaneda clashes with The Colonel’s troops on his way to stop Tetsuo from releasing Akira but arrives too late. Akira soon emerges from his prison courtesy of Tetsuo as Kaneda races in to save his brother before Akira once again destroys Manhattan Island, as he did thirty years ago.”
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
