Reports of an Akira live action movie.

It was incoherent enough when it was an anime, I shudder to think what it will be like when Hollywood gets done with it...

EDIT: For those too scared to read the link the funniest part is that Leonardo Di Caprio may be producing it...

EDIT 22/2/08: And it gets worse: no cast details, scheduled for 2009, and they're shifting the setting to "New Manhattan"...

Also in the Hollywood pipeline as of today: Universal are prepping a Magic: The Gathering movie.

This surprises me not at all given the true name of that particular franchise. Which, naturally enough, is its Tragic: The Marketing.

Aside: the selection of Wizards of the Coast to produce the Pokemon collectable card game always had all the inevitability of radioactive decay to me...

Funny thing is, I was just thinking if I could have the choice of what should be made into LA, I'd go Ghost in the Shell, but shot by Hong Kong directors, not Western.

Shrugs. Not a big fan of GITS but agree with your choice of director style.
