And Zac Efron adds another movie to possible consider…
SlashFilm reports that the 23-year-old actor is up for the lead role in the live-action adaptation of the popular anime/manga Akira.
MTV speculated that Zac might be up for the role of Shotaro Kaneda, the young leader of a motorcycle gang called The Capsules. He’s best friends with Tetsuo, a troubled youth with undiscovered psychic powers. Once Tetsuo taps into his destructive telepathic abilities, he becomes drunk with power, forcing Kaneda to lead the charge against his very best friend.
Leonardo DiCaprio was formerly attached to the project.
