'Akira' Production Offices Shutdown



Just when the live-action film for Akira was up and ready to go, the Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that production on the film has been shut down.

Production offices in Vancouver, Canada have been closed down and all non-essential crew and talent are being sent home after Warner Bros has decided to review the budget. The Hollywood Reported noted that the studio still feels that the amount is too high and is hoping to bring the budget down to between $60 million and $70 million.

According to insiders, the project could very well end up being shelved entirely if the issues aren't resolved. Other sources have said that the film isn't dead yet and that the studio "just won't let it die."
