DiCaprio Talks Akira, Scroll

Leonardo DiCaprio tells MTV News that at present he’s waiting on the final draft of the live-action remake of anime classic “Akira”, but is still in only very early development stages of the “Ninja Scroll” redux.

The star is committed to NOT screwing these efforts up like so many American remakes seem to do – “I’m a big fan of Japanese anime… I know there a lot of loyal fans out there of the project and die-hard fans, so we’re going to try to do the best job we possibly can and we’re not going to make the movie until the script is in the right shape.”

Also in spite of his Appian Way company producing both films, he himself has no plans to star in either film.
