Snow Crash Possibly Entering Production

So Joe Cornish, director of the excellent Attack the Block, is directing the adaptation of Neil Stephenson's classic cyberpunk novel. On the other hand, the producer, Kathleen Kennedy, was one of the people backing The Last Airbender. Will Hiro Protagonist, the biracial lead character, end up whitewashed due to producer pressure, or will they be willing to stick to the book?

His background is so essential to the story! I really really hope they don't whitewash him.

Yes, this. I can't imagine and do not want to see a whitewashed Hiro Protagonist.

And try not even to think about what might befall Raven.

Aaaaah, I hope not! I loved ATB.

I'm scared for this. Isn't the character half black/half Japanese? I can totally see a "we couldn't find a qualified actor" situation.
