In the ‘90s, after the success of Twin Peaks and Wild at Heart, David Lynch almost made a live-action adaptation of Otomo Katsuhiro’s manga Domu: A Child’s Dream. It’s not as well known or popular as Katsuhiro’s own Akira, but it’s still considered a major work. And in a number of ways, this movie adaptation almost happened because of George Lucas.
Recently, on the Filmumentaries Podcast, Nilo Rodis-Jamero related a piece of this story, but /Film followed up with him to ask more about the project and why it fell apart.
