Hi,

When I left the flat to go to work this morning, Neckinger was blocked and several trucks were parked in the street.

I've asked a policeman and he told me they were shooting a movie called "Akira".

I looked on the internet and there is indeed a movie called Akira set to be released in 2011 starring Leo di Caprio.

Does anybody have more info about this?

I saw this too, just spent 15mnis googling it. only saw the trailers with names like "Mrs joyce" "Man" and "Jason"
I found this:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094625/news#ni0971455

Looks like an anime remake an I hear Akira is one of the biggest of the genre

EDIT: Where did you get your Akira informatino as this thread says Neckinger filming?

Only time you see a policeman round here is when there's a film crew.

Unless they are driving really fast the wrong way up the one way way street.
