Hope (?) for the Live Action Akira Film

In case you've forgotten, Warner Bros has been trying to make a Westernized, live-action version of the 1988 anime Akira for years.  Widely regarded as one of the most groundbreaking and well-loved animes of all time, most fans don't see the need for an American Akira, especially not with big Hollywood names like Chris Pine, James Franco, Andrew Garfield, Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson rumored to be attached to the project.  Things have been pretty quiet on the Akira front for a while, but a new name has cropped up, and one that isn't so bad. 

Netflix's Daredevil season 2 showrunner Marco Ramirez has apparently been hired to write a screenplay for the film.  In addition to the new Daredevil series, Ramirez has also written for Orange is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy.  There's no questioning his talent; Ramirez can certainly pen a good script, but the question remains of whether or not this film should even be made.

 Does Ramirez's involvement affect how you feel about an American Akira?  Would you watch it?

Kit Harrington and Andy Samberg Serve Up Tiny Shorts for This 7 Days in Hell Trailer

HBO is getting back into the mockumentary game with the upcoming movie 7 Days in Hell starring Kit Harrington and Andy Samberg as two rival tennis pros.

The minute-long trailer only gives you a taste of the tournament to come, but it at least leaves us comfortable in the knowledge that Will Forte is involved. We can all sleep easy after that.

This marks a presumptive comedic turn for Harrington, who has mostly stayed on the dour side of things as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones. Although, he has shown that he can be pretty funny if given the chance.

Looks Like Fox is Rebooting League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Remember when Sean Connery turned down Lord of the Rings to be the lead in a horrible adaptaion of Alan Moore's graphic novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? The movie flopped so hard, Connery chose to retire from acting altogether, and now fox wants to give it another go.

League follows a group of characters famous from 19th Century British sci-fi/fantasy novels as they team up to take on the most villainous threats. Alan Quartermain, The Invisible Man, Captain Nemo, Doctor Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, and a full vampire version of Mina Harker round out the cast.

Fox tried to produce a TV series in 2013, but it never went beyond the pilot. While it feels like they're just hoping to hold onto the movie rights a little bit longer, let's hope Fox can make something decent from the property this time around.
