    When i was reading the article in the back of my kind i could hear Korg's quote from Ragnarok.
    "Do you reckon you'd be interested?" :woot:

    And when i first heard of this hole premise and adding to that Taika's sensibilities... i instantly thought about one of my favorite movies ever.

    Man, was hoping this might be something a little less straight-up comedic from Taika.

    "Imaginary Hitler", though, played by him? :woot: Alriiiiiighty then. Weirdo.

    Feels like something they would've made back in the 40s to crack on the Nazis in general.

    This also interests me a lot. It's a Taika Waititi script too and by the looks of it a very promission one. It was nr 12 in that 2012 list. This could become something special.

    A goofy and charming Hitler while we’ve got a rise in nationalist, Neo-Nazi tendencies across the Western world?

    Hmm...I too like to live dangerously.

    I read “next Harvey” and freaked out a bit. Woof.

    Taika seems exactly the kind of person who would flirt with this, not give a [email protected]#$, and get away with it :funny:

    I'm a little more surprised that Johansson (a Jewish person) would sign on, if only about the optics of "goofy Hitler" and "Jewish" being in the same sentence. Someone somewhere is gonna have an "offended" hot take over this for sure. :whatever:

    I absolutely loved this script. Sweet lord. Taika is an incredible talent. If this script doesn't get a best original screenplay nom, it will be a damn shame.

    Sounds like an interesting project. Will definitely check this out. Fingers crossed Taika Waititi will work on Akira after this...

    Scarlett fits the role really great. It was nice to read with her already in mind as the character.

    Wow I was surprised with these latest casting news... Scarlett Johansson is a big name to be attached to a project like this. The script was lauded as one of the great unproduced scripts so i’m guessing it’s one of the reasons why it has attracted this caliber of talent. Also the word is, that Taika is a blast to work with so it makes sense people would gravitate towards his projects.
