Akira finally to be live?

According to Variety, Warner Bros. will turn anime artist Katsuhiro Otomo’s six-volume graphic novel masterwork Akira into two live action feature films, the first of which is being fast tracked for release in summer 2009.

WB, which had the Akira rights several years ago, only to let them lapse and then recapture them in a spirited bidding battle, is planning a twin-bill that the filmmakers have described as “Blade Runner” meets City of God.
