Taika Waititi's Akira Will Hit Theaters on May 21, 2021
Warner Bros. has been trying to make a live-action Akira movie for years, and so many talented filmmakers have cycled through its development that I honestly never thought we’d see it happen. But it looks like director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople) is going to be the one to finally crack it, because the film now has an official release date. The studio says Waititi’s version of Akira will hit theaters on May 21, 2021.
