Rumor: Keanu could be Kaneda in Akira

I was pleasantly surprised when I first found out that this project was actually entering production and I’m still apprehensive with today’s casting rumor making the rounds that the Keanu Dude might want in on this project.

Now comes word that Reeves has held talks with the studio, with whom he already made the massively successful Matrix movies, for the part of Kaneda, the gang leader. Reeves doesn’t yet have an offer for the role, but we hear the talks with his reps have been going well.

Reeves anchoring the project could serve as a strong lure for another A-lister to take the role of Tetsuo, the best friend.

I thought this movie was about young people. I do like the idea of this movie entering production but they are taking so many liberties with this projects’ adaptation that they might as well just re-title it and call it an original movie like Ridley Scott did with his movie. This news strongly reminds me why I shouldn’t have such an investment in an unfinished film because if I did, then I might be a little upset about this rumor.

Keanu would make an interesting choice in the role but I am not overly thrilled about him taking the role. What’s the nice way to say this? I would just like to see them go in a different direction.
