Get Out’s Jordan Peele Eyed to Helm Akira

Posted on: March 30th, 2017

Get Out is one of the most successful films of the year, one of the most impressive horror films EVER and is the first film directed by an African-American to have a debut of $100 million. So, it’s safe to say that the film’s director Jordan Peele is hot property.

Warner Bros is currently eyeing the director to helm the live-action remake of Akira; an extraordinary anime production from 1988. The story follows two teenagers and a group of psychics as they try to put an end to a dangerous military project.

As Get Out was such a unique and memorable horror experience, we would expect the possibility of Peele’s Akira to be equally as creative, with a clear vision from this scarily impressive director. Keep your eyes Peele-d.
