Looks like Warner Bros has found their man!
Last we heard about the upcoming live action Akira remake, Keanu Reeves had been named as one of the top contenders to star in the movie…but nothing ever came of it.
Now, it appears that Tron: Legacy hottie Garrett Hedlund is in negotiations for the lead role of Kenada.
Don't be sad, Keanu! You've still got that new Bill & Ted flick, right?
As for Garrett's involvement in the movie, we fully approve! We think he's a good fit for the role…and aside from that, we just like to see him on screen, potentially without a shirt on at some point. Lick!
What do U think? Is Garrett Hedlund the right guy for this role???
