Stewart to Play Lead in Akira?
Kristen Stewart is impossible to escape at the moment.
She’s just about to hit cinemas in one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, Breaking Dawn, and she has been busy filming for new movie Snow White and The Huntsman. And now the actress has reportedly been approached by Warner Bros to play yet another leading role – this time as the leading lady in their remake of Akira.
The actress is reportedly being lined up to play Kei, the love interest of lead Kanedo. The story is set in the future in a city called Neo Tokyo and follows Kanedo’s quest to save his friend from the government who are looking to exploit his psychokinetic powers.
