It's the Enterprise! http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2008/11 ... Enterprise
Nice, very nice; looks pretty familiar to the movie versions (Like Abrams, my favorites); those new nacelles are cool. They needed something a little more realistic and dynamic than dual hot dogs for a modern-day film. ^ ^

Movie star and producer Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, The Assassination of Richard Nixon, The Aviator) told MTV's Splash Page that his Appian Way production company is waiting for the final script draft for the live-action film version of Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira manga. He added, "I'm a big fan of Japanese anime — that and another project called Ninja Scroll we're trying to get developed and made into a movie, and 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." He also emphasized that he is producing in these two projects, and that he does "not really" have any interest in acting in them.

The Variety entertainment news source reported in February that Warner Brothers and Appian Way had re-licensed the rights to remake Akira from the manga publisher Kodansha. The two companies originally planned to make two films, each of which would cover three volumes of the renowned science-fiction manga about a governmental genetic project and a teenager's attempt to save a fellow biker gang member. Otomo himself directed a popular 1988 anime film based on his own manga. Variety also reported last month that Warner Brothers and Appian Way had licensed the rights to adapt Yoshiaki Kawajiri's Ninja Scroll action anime film from the Madhouse anime studio.


Nice, he has just the right attitude, here, I think. Neither of those is a property that couldn't be adapted fairly nicely into a live-action format. Looking forward to this and seeing what Spielberg does with Ghost in the Shell (Which he was an avowed fan of).

Maybe for once they'll actually cast, y'know, some Asian people in an adaptation of an anime or manga set in Japan! (Glares at white kid DB movie Goku)
Okay, the Saiyans are technically aliens, but they always felt like an analog to the Mongols or other Central-Asian raiders to me.

No matter what way you said all that, Nate, you still came out a racist. :laughing:

Btw: Ever seen Casshern? It was made a live action film first (though the intention seems to be first anime, second nothing or again anime, and third live action film) and had an anime spin-off from it.

Nah, not racism, just source-accuracy. (Specifically, in terms of wanting to have characters who were originally Japanese be played by people of Japanese ancestry. I think it comes from my irritation with that old "audiences won't be able to relate to a non-white lead!" prejudice.(Remember how they used to change all the names in old dubbed anime to white peoples'? "Kids can't handle these Japanese names!")

I guess someone could call me an anti-white racist for that...but I am white, I don't think they could make it stick. ^ ^

I'm white and I have often stated blatantly racist terms against the race. O_o:;

...I can't really remember. It was in a Spider-Man comic...that moment just stuck in my mind as funny.
