Kristen Stewart and Ken Watanabe have both been offered roles in Warner Bros. upcoming Big screen adaption of the movie, 'Akira'

Here is the latest and the greatest on the big screen adaption of the Anime, Akira:

According to Dread Central: 

1. It looks like Ken Watanabe (Inception) is the current front runner for the role of, ‘The Colonel.’

2. Twilight super star, Kristen Stewart (Undertow) has been offered the role of Kei.

With this interesting odyssey in the casting for this movie continuing, and with no role’s currently confirmed one way or the other, we thought that you guys might enjoy the trailer for the original Anime movie, Akira (1988):
