Live Action Akira Movie Canceled

Say what you want about Akira; personally I found it very lacking. I didn't see it until I was well into my modern anime hobby; so possibly if seen on it's original run in 1988 in Japan or when it hit the states in the early 90's it's impact might have been greater. That said, it's unfortunate when a high profile project like this, with Big Dollar Hollywood backing, get's nixed. Hopefully the impending Cowboy Bebop movie fairs much better.
