Warner Bros. is making a live action Akira... and they're moving the setting from Neo-Tokyo to 'Neo-Manhattan' and are looking at Robert Pattinson and Justin Timberlake to play the roles of Tetsuo and Kaneda.

I was just thinking about the whole Hollywood 'whitewashing' thing when I was channel-surfing a minute ago and I passed the Ten Commandments on ABC. I guess I can't be surprised that a movie made in the 60s featured an all white cast but... holy fuck you're telling me in 2011 you can't make a movie set in fucking future Japan with asians playing the role of fucking asians?

Is there a shortage of Asians in California that I'm unaware of?
