Notes from the Manager
Yes, it's true. Or, actually, it's only half-true: they're making two films based on Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira -- and the first is being fast tracked for a summer 2009 release. And, yes, I know the comics came first (or started first, since the movie came out while the story was still being serialized), so it's really based on those, not the movie, but Kurt isn't into comics, so it's the sort of detail he wouldn't really know about. (The real reason: I needed to keep that line shorter to fit in the balloon, so I had Kurt gloss those aspects of the news item over in order to get to the yelling quicker.)

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
