Just when we get news about Zac Efron possibly playing the role of Kaneda or Tetsuo in the upcoming Akira remake, it seems that some one at WB wants folks to keep talking about the film. Recent news indicate that Morgan Freeman (Dark Knight, Wanted) has just been offer the role of Colonel Shikishima, who was simply known as The Colonel.

Who knows if Freeman knows the Akira property or not, he would be able to show the class the Colonel has on the big screen. What do y’all think of this possible casting news? Would Freeman play the role right or it doesn’t matter who is in the film as this will be crap either way? Tell us how you feel about the Hughes Brothers film by leaving a comment.
