    I’ll still believe it when we see stills and/or a trailer.

    This project has been confirmed so many times. Remember how long Leo was confirmed to be Kaneda and it was going to start filming soon?

    Right there with you Meg. Though with that director attached it does some like this is the most possible iteration. I feel more positive with him at the helm because I don't think he would whitewash it.

    Heres a different direction to take the thread...I don't believe any of us are cool with whitewashing movies, but what about minor side characters? Is it socially acceptable if all the mains are origin maintained and they put whiteys in minor side roles? You know studio heads are having that conversation.

    I want to be excited about this and have faith in Taika, I really do....but it’s been through development hell with so many terrible script drafts and had so many people attached to it, that hotshotting this just reeks of Warner Brothers' desperation to get the movie done than lose the rights. Plus the turns in the source material are impossible to imagine in live-action.

    This is a disaster waiting to happen.

    If casting happens, I'll believe. They better get their PR ready.

    Leo was cast for the better part of a decade.

    Call me when they’re filming.

    You're not. You post that line a lot, and it seems to be your candid response any time any news short of a trailer is released. Speculating is fun.

    meg has a point. However I have to side with Duke that guessing what a movie will be like and if it will ever happen is fun.

    I remember when Keanu was supposed to be in this and also play Spike in a live action Cowboy Bebop. Or maybe it was just Bebop.
