That didn't stop them trying to cast Brad Pitt (49) as Kenada (15) a while ago.

Justin Timberlake is in the running too now I believe.

What possible audience are they aiming this film at? It boggles the mind...

I wouldn't be surprised if they'd approached Keanu Reaves too.

It's a simple equation: they make it before someone else does.  The rest is semantics as long as a name cast and director is involved.

I would like to see Hollywood attempt Urotsukidoji - Legend Of The Overfiend, just to see them get round the tentacle sex.

This is one of the dumbest things ever. If they really have to remake / americanize it, at least use teenagers - there's no shortage of them - and don't call it AKIRA if it's set in New York !

Didn't they make "Dragonball Z" a couple years back ? And it bombed ? Maybe there's hope...

You'd choose Lance Henriksen over Clint Eastwood??!!?!?

If they ever make a biopic about Lance Henriksen (unlikely, yes) I'd rather see Clint Eastwood play the role of Lance Henriksen than Lance Henriksen himself.

True , they both have the craggy face and gravelly voice I'd assume the Saint has , but I still reckon
Henrikson  would pull it off over Eastwood.

Another craggy faced gravelly actor who would make a great Saint of Killers is Stephen McHattie. He was great in A History of Violence and 300, and should have been chosen by Spielberg to play Abe Lincoln over Liam bloody Neeson IMHO.

Actually he'd make a great Lance Henriksen too.
