Concept art of Warner Bros’ defunct AKIRA live-action remake

Comicbookmovie:

Conceptual illustrator James Clyne (“Avatar”), has updated his website with artwork that he created for OblivionEnder’s Game, and Warner Bros. never-produced live-action remake of Akira.

In 2002, Warner Bros. acquired rights to make a live-action remake of Katsuhiro Otomo‘s Akira. Plans for it didn’t start to really materialize until 2008. That is when Irish short film director Ruairi Robinson (“The Last Days on Mars”) was brought on board to direct.

At that time, the script was being written by Gary Whitta (“The Book of Eli”), and Leonardo DiCaprio would’ve been one of the producers. Of course things fell apart and the project would end up in two other directors hands (Albert Hughes and Jaume Collet-Serra) before WB finally pulled the plug on it in 2012. Below, you will find several pieces of concept art that conceptual illustrator James Clyne created for Robinson’s version of Akira
