Being a well-known actor doesn't always mean being a good actor. Just look at Nicholas Cage A lot of famous actors make it big because they have connections with important people in the industry. The fact that they're famous means they have strong connections. But if you look at most of their movies, you'll find that their acting ability is....well....not really that great

Yea but as a an actor your supposed to be able to take on different roles.

What I am really trying to say is your supposed to be a good actor depending upon your experience in acting

Bleh, why not cast Keanu Reeves as every anime lead?

Whoa.

Well, good thing this is buried.

Yes, you're supposed to take on different roles, and experience can make you a good actor and it does in most cases. But if that's all it took to be a famous actor, then there'd be plenty more actors out there in Hollywood movies right now. Instead, you tend to see the same faces all the time because they know how to market themselves well and they know people in the industry. People like Keanu who've been in the industry for so many years has a lot of connections, and from the producer's perspective, having a well-known name in the movie will get them more money than having a genuinely good actor but is relatively unknown because it attracts a bigger audience. The more people watch the movie, the more they make in the box office. So really, it's more to do with money and marketing than skill and talent. Being famous doesn't mean you're good at what you do when it comes to acting (with some exceptions, but sorry to say, Keanu isn't an exception).

Umm being one in Theater arts I have learned that different thing. Listen if you have skill and talent that all you need to act well. money doesn't actually come to later.

This is a better casting than
Justin Chatiwn- Known with little experience
Noah ringer- this guy had nothing and still didn't do that bad yea his acting was a little sulky, but hey your just being


Either way how bad can it really be. I mean it isn't like the guy who played "Speed" became part of the movie "Ninja Assassin"

While the pot is cooking for this movie, here's another 'just leave the anime alone, it'll be DBE 2 from Hollywood' update on Akira.
(Thought we had a thread for it, obviously not...) :\

(No, it isn't an April fool's joke, IMDB has an entry and it was written a couple of days ago)
Short of it being cancelled, methinks it's sadly legit.

The article is written in satire but for fits and giggles, sake

Cowboy Bebop and Last Air bender were one thing and DBE was bad but sill this is a little off this is completely and uterluy westernized, DBE was at least somewhat Eastern but this is the whitish of the white for Akira and it doesn't even work Akira isn't that modern

It's 2012 and the movie's still up in the air, but that hasn't stopped some from fantasising about the ideal Bepop cast, it seems.

^ Damn that's some amazing photoshopping. They don't look awkward at all for trying to look like anime characters.

Vicious looks more like dante though, need a skinnier jaw

I really don't want one to happen...I feel like whenever Hollywood do adaptation, they'll butcher it like they did to DB D:

Those pictures are awesome, I love Bruce Willis as Jet, looks awesome.

But yeah, in typical Hollywood fashion the characters will not have those sort of details that makes them who they are. They'll probably be reduced to a few american sterotypes and get rid of many of the quirks. I'd be optimistic if the ships looked even half as close as they are supposed to.

Shinichiro Watanabe was a guest at the Anime Festival Asia 2012 in Singapore, and I managed to catch him during his stage appearance. Host Danny Choo asked him to describe his early years in the anime industry and also asked about his work on Sakamichi no Apollon.





More importantly, Watanabe was asked about Cowboy Bepop, and he revealed a few interesting tidbits:
  • Cowboy Bepop was originally meant to promote a new line of toys.
  • The toy company told Watanabe that he could do anything he wanted, so long as the anime featured spaceships.
  • Watanabe took the sponsor at its word; the toy company pulled out mid-way when it realised that the anime wasn't what it expected.
  • Cowboy Bepop would not have been completed had Bandai not stepped in with the funds at the last moment.
  • Regarding the Hollywood movie — Watanabe confirmed that the project is still in the works, despite a temporary stall.
  • The US director is working on a script in consultation with Watanabe, who plays a supervisory role.
  • Watanabe seems optimistic about the project, and he has insisted on just one condition: Don't let it become another Dragonball.
  • Watanabe revealed that he first visited Singapore about 20 years ago. He is amazed at how much the city has changed.
  • When it comes to creating new works, Watanabe said he loves to mix influences from many different cultures, like he did in Cowboy Bepop.
  • He credited this approach to Singapore's multilingual, multi-racial and multicultural society, which greatly inspired him 20 years ago.
  • Episode 24, Hard Luck Woman, in which Faye Valentine finally discovered her origins, was Watanabe's tribute to Singapore.
