The Colonel is the military leader assigned to take down Tetsuo once they realize he may have enormous power.
Akira is based on anime artist Katsuhiro Otomo’s six-volume graphic novel masterwork. The film is said to take place in “New Manhattan,” a metropolis that was rebuilt after being destroyed 31 years ago.
The studio has not set a release date for the film yet.
