Ruairi Robinson tipped to direct live-action Akira

From horror news site Bloody-Disgusting.com on Sunday, Irishman Ruairi Robinson is being touted as the director for a forthcoming live-action version of the classic manga (and anime) Akira.

Robinson, who was Oscar-nominated for 50 Percent Grey (one of my favourite computer-animated shorts), also directed Silent City (starring Don Wycherley and Cillian Murphy). He has not commented on the news as of yet.
