Casting of the Warner Brothers and Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan, Unknown) adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira is underway, and we’re getting so excited about this recent development that we can’t stop biting our lips. But first, to recap: Garret Hedlund was Eherenreich (Tetro) were being considered. All of these people are white.

Now Twitch reports Kristen Stewart (yes, from Twilight) has been offered the role of Kei, a psychic medium who is part of a resistance movement and who becomes the love interest for Kaneda. We’re so excited, you guys, but how could we possibly express our emotions? If only there were some sort of crutch we could fall back on . . .
