    I think he won't fit the role well... he can play nice grandpas and stuff... but not The Colonel...

    Did you read the review for the newly revised script? It made me lose all hope.

    On the bright side, people won't even notice that its supposed to be Akira if they change a couple more names and remove the drugs in the next draft.

    You can hardly tell it's Akira now! I mean, Pakistanis? Really?

    Just to make it worse, the slang qouted in the script review for them is sort of the N-word equivelent for south asian folks over here.

    Not that i'm surprised or anything, we are talking about folks that optioned rights to a comic about post-nuclear Japanese society so they could make a movie about vaguely similar characters in America.

    Can someone summarize the script review? Is it THAT outrageous?
