Akira Live Action Remake?

41ZQMF80TCL._SL210_ Update on films and series I loved as a child being turned into live action films that I doubt will be any good, Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way plans to make a live action remake of Akira, a film that does not need to be remade at all...

I have no problem films being made that continue previous films, but I have never been a fan of remakes. I can only think of a few film remakes that have not sucked and even fewer that were better than the original.

I wish these studios would spend more time coming up with original ideas, and less time rehashing previously successful films that they hope will be successful all over again.
