Zac Effron NOT Starring in AKIRA!

The High School Musical Star will not be joining the cast of Akira!

Zac Effron is reportedly not in the running to star in a live-action adaptation of Akira.



The internet has been awash with rumors of Efron being in the running to star in the live action adaptation of the groundbreaking anime.


Zac Efron is reportedly not in the running to star in a live-action adaptation of Akira.

Several news outlets reported last week that the High School Musical star was offered the lead role in the project.

However, representatives for the Hughes Brothers, who are directing the movie, have said that the rumors about Efron playing the lead role in Akira are "not true".

Leonardo DiCaprio is producing the project.


Maybe there will be some hope for this film yet.
