KRISTEN STEWART Offered Lead in AKIRA Film

The live action adaptation of Akira is gaining steam and now it’s being reported that Kristen Stewart has been offered the female lead of Kei.

Twitch reports that Jaume Collet-Sera’s version of the story from Katsuhiro Otomo, which already has big names like Gary Oldman, Helena Bonham Carter, and Garrett Hedlund, has given an offer to Stewart. Kristin or her reps have not yet replied to the reports.

The character Kei is a “young medium who becomes the love interest for Kaneda.” The role of Kaneda has already been offered to Hedlund, but again there is no word if he has accepted the role or not.

Stewart’s work on the Twilight series has put her in the spotlight recently with the final moving coming out this Friday. Hopefully she will be able to get away from the Twilight stigma and have people see her differently.
