Jordan Peele Director of GET OUT - On Shortlist to Tackle AKIRA? What Does He Need To Do To Succeed.
Jordan Peele, the writer & director of the hit record breaking film Get OUT which has grossed over $167 million dollars at Box Office, is being considered to helm AKIRA.
Peele was able make GET OUT for only $4.5 million - a minuscule amount in Hollywood. Blumhouse, the production company that specializes in low budget horror flicks, produced GET OUT and has been and has rewarded handsomely for working with Peele on this meeting. Kudos for Jordan. While Hollywood is currently at your feet, AIRA has been in development hell for years and will be tough to make.
Here is what he should look out for:
1) All who have looked at AKIRA, have found it tough slogging and getting all the stakeholders has yet to happen.
2) Many of the concepts , have been around for a longtime, so the film could feel dated
3) Box Office for GHOST IN THE SHELL, another Neo-Cyber-Punk Japan was disappointing.
4) The budget for the film will be huge and will need to be watched, to avoid bloat.
If he can handle all this, he will be a success.
