Warner Bros sudah lama ingin memproduksi Live-Action untuk film anime AKIRA. Tapi sepertinya mereka belum mempunyai ide untuk mengadaptasinya dengan matang. Pada tahun 2011 lalu, Jaume Collet-Serra ditunjuk untuk mensutradarai dengan Garrett Hedlund yang menjadi Kaneda. Tapi produksi film ini dipending, karena studio memotong budget produksi film ini hanya menjadi $90 juta dollar. Semenjak itulah sutradaranya mundur, dan mencoba untuk mengerjakan project lain yang skalanya lebih kecil.

Untuk kalian yang penasaran tentang persiapan produksi Live-Action AKIRA, sang sutradara Collet-Serra mengatakan…

“It’s different, because you have to be respectful of the source material. Otomo adapted his own work from a manga into an anime and both things are completely different and genius. The only way to do a live version of “Akira” is to take the spirit and adapt it. It will be as different as the anime was from the manga.”

Sang Sutradara juga ditanya tentang ekspektasi para fans, ke khawatiran mereka, dan bagaimana dia mempertahankan esensi-esensi dalam anime AKIRA…

“I think you cannot make a movie about “Akira” and hope that everyone understands it. Like everything else, you have to make three or four movies in one where there’s the essence somewhere. If you’re a fan, you already know what it’s about and you’ll see it’s part of the same world, but trying to oversimplify it would be a mistake. I think if at some point a character tries to explain it to the audience at the end of the second act, that’s a problem. It’s more like an existential opera. It’s something that can only be explained in the manga, and even in the anime it’s hard to follow.”

Ketika dia ditanya bagaimana dia akan membuat karakter dalam film ini…

“I hope that I can bring strong characters. In the original source material, I don’t think the main characters are the protagonists. What I’m hoping is to bring characters.”

Dia menambahkan…

“Nobody’s interesting. Tetsuo’s interesting because weird sh*t happens to him, and Kaneda is so two-dimensional. That’s part of the Japanese culture, they never have strong characters. They’re used as a way to move the other philosophy forward.”

Sebuah statement yang menarik, meskipun pasti tidak semua orang setuju. Yang jelas disitulah tantangan terbesar sutradaranya nanti… Lalu wawancaranya ditutup dengan…

“Yeah. So hopefully in my version that will be strong, and you’ll have a story that happens in that world that will show you a little bit of the mystery. Then, if you’re interested, they’ll make “Akira 2 & 3” then you can get deeper into it. I love the world, a lot of people love that world, so why wouldn’t we indulge in it a little bit and see how it would be if it was real? Like you say I don’t have to explain everything, but wouldn’t you like to spend two-hours in a world of “Akira” and follow a character and be like, “that’s cool”? That’s all I want to offer, is two-hours in a world you can actually feel. We’re working on it.”

Sebuah film live-action adaptasi dari Anime “AKIRA” jelas sangat ditunggu-tunggu oleh para fans diseluruh dunia… semoga bisa sukses, dan tidak mengecewakan yaa! mari kita tunggu updatenya.
