Akira Synopsis and Cast Leaked

Like any leaked document found online, you can choose not to believe the recently leaked synopsis and confirmed casting (Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Ken Watanabe and Helena Bonham Carter) for the Akira Hollywood remake, primarily because the people responsible for the project still have yet to set anything in stone, much less the casting. However, the synopsis itself is an interesting read:

“Desperate to get his brother back, Kaneda agrees to join with Ky Reed and her underground movement who are intent on revealing to the world what truly happened to New York City thirty years ago when it was destroyed. Kaneda believes their theories to be ludicrous but after finding his brother again, is shocked when he displays telekinetic powers.”

“Ky believes Tetsuo is headed to release a young boy, Akira, who has taken control of Tetsuo’s mind. Kaneda clashes with The Colonel’s troops on his way to stop Tetsuo from releasing Akira but arrives too late. Akira soon emerges from his prison courtesy of Tetsuo as Kaneda races in to save his brother before Akira once again destroys Manhattan Island, as he did thirty years ago.”
