Sounds pretty awesome huh? Well, not really. Albert Hughes plans on directing it, they want it more family friendly aka PG-13 (why you you even do that, do these people know how violent and crazy Tetsuo is?), but that's not what's getting the main buzz. It's that Zac Efron has been in talks to play the role of Kaneda. This will be another film I'll be staying up on. Hopefully they make it just as awesome as the original cartoon but we highly doubt it. Here's an article from io9 and Movie Web.
