Director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) is currently attached to direct the film and revealed in previous interviews that he plans to adapt the original manga, not remake the anime film. The upcoming film is said to take place in a rebuilt New Manhattan in which a leader of a biker gang saves his friend from a medical experiment. The project is said to be composed of two films, with each film tackling three volumes of Katsuhiro Otomo's original work.
The film is produced by Mad Chance's Andrew Lazar alongside with Leonardo DiCaprio and Appian Way Production's Jennifer Davisson.
