Live action Akira loses director

Another setback for the troubled adaptation

With the wounds still fresh from Keanu Reeves turning down the role of Kaneda (which to be fair he was about three decades too old for), director Albert Hughes has left following what Deadline call “amicable creative differences”.

Warner Bros are reporting to be hooking the Book Of Eli director up with another project.
