Should they actually produce a live action movie of Akira it would flop on the sole basis that it is too realistic.
The only person who might be able to pull it off is Micheal Bay, and even then it would require the use of Cgi in nearly every scene
(Assuming it stays true to the original story)
Personally I think making a live action movie out of any Anime or video game is simply a bad idea.
And you know Dam well if he were to make the other 3 books into movies that you would eventually own the entire set.

Not to toot my own horn, but give me the budget of a typical Marvel movie, the right Hollywood connections, and a crew of experienced filmmakers and I could make a DBZ movie that blows your brains out the back of your head with awesomeness. Though I think the same is true of anyone that's extensively studied the source material and isn't retarded.
If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.
