Sorry, couldn't resist. Leonardo DiCaprio has been speaking to MTV about his plans for the theatrical remakes of Akira and Ninja Scroll, and being a self-proclaimed huge fan of anime he seems to be aware of fan expectations for both titles:

"I'm a big fan of Japanese anime [...] and I know there are a lot of loyal fans out there of the project and die-hard fans, so we're going to try to do the best job we possibly can and we're not going to make the movie until the script is in the right shape."

Fortunately, he has no plans to take on an acting role in either movie, sticking instead to the producer's role. His production company, Appian Way, is currently awaiting the final draft of the Akria script, with the Ninja Scroll project yet to get under way.
