Akira follows the leader of a biker gang who must save his friend with potentially destructive psychokinetic abilities from government medical experiments. Gary Oldman and Helena Bonham Carter are also attached to the project as The Colonel and Lady Miyako, respectively.

Garrett, 27, first showed off his motorcycle skills in Tron: Legacy, which banked $172 million in worldwide box office tickets. Just this past Monday, he wore a wig while attending Maroon 5′s Halloween party held at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
