Hollywood scuttlebutt is that Ryan Gosling will be offered the lead role in the movie version of All You Need Is KILL. Clearly, the film is going to be “American” rather than following the Japanese-international theme of Sakurazaka’s novel, but other than that, what do you think?

The same article from Beyond Hollywood also talks about Zac Efron perhaps being offered the lead role in Akira, based on the first anime pretty much anyone my age ever saw subtitled rather than poorly dubbed. I was excited at Efron’s picture—maybe he’d be a good choice!
