This doesn't make me want to see an American Akira, it just makes me want to see more Chris Weston art.

Bloomin' heck they are a lot more developed than the storyboards I've seen before. They are exquisite.

I thoroughly concur - The Weston Droid's art on display here is brilliantly artful.

Sadly I still wouldn't watch a US Akira till it was on TV. But these storyboards deserve all the praise they are getting.

Stuff the Movie make these storyboards into a Graphic Novel and it will sell enough to rescue the economy. Ok it's infringing Otomo's copyright >sigh<

Those are great. Almost makes me wish they'd got the film done. But not quite.

Amazing stuff. Mr Weston is on fire at the moment (not literally, I hope.)  :lol:

I do feel for Weston -- as much as I complained about the chance of a live-action Akira remake, and still have my doubts it would be any good, he seems genuinely gutted the project didn't work out. You can see from the work he's put into these boards that he was passionate about the film.

Might as well punch up an old thread about Chris Weston art with this news.



Leonardo DiCaprio Produced ‘Akira’ Scores In Latest CA Tax Credits Allocation

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to shoot Akira in California,” said Ravi Mehta, Warner Bros. Pictures EVP of physical production and finance on Tuesday of the film and the tax credits it has been awarded. “The availability of top-notch crew members, plus the wide variety of location choices and predictable weather are second to none,” the exec added of the upcoming project.

Eager to display that the 13th big budget film to receive tax credits since the program was expanded back in 2014 is a good financial bet, the CFC reckons Akira will create a total of $92 million in spending in Cali during production – which is serious cash all round.

In full, the math for this latest round of awards for the 18 films is estimated to generate about $408 million in what the CFC call “qualified expenditures.”

Set to film entirely in the Golden State, the also Andrew Lazar produced Akira itself is estimated to generate $43 million in wages to 200 below-the line crew members and more than 5,000 extras during its 71 days of filming. Having seen his name floated around in the past in connection to the project, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is still on-board to helm Akira, I hear.
