That Garrett Hedlund-starring remake of Akira may still be on hold, but Warner Bros. seems determined to delve into Japanese pop culture one way or another. Back in 2010, the studio acquired the live-action movie rights to Tite Kubo‘s manga Bleach, with Peter Segal (Get Smart) attached to produce. We haven’t seen much in the way of progress since then, but it looks like the project’s finally beginning to pick up some steam. Wrath of the Titans screenwriter Dan Mazeau has just been tapped to pen the script, with Segal now considering directing as well as producing. More details after the jump.
