Well, I am not sure if I am behind or what but I am just now hearing about an upcoming Astro Boy
It has an Imdb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375568/
(the cast is quite impressive)
And here's an article with an interview with the director: http://www.collider.com/entertainment/interviews/article.asp/aid/8416/tcid/1
I feel like I HAVE to give this film a chance!
Plus it's got Scarlett Johansson in it... it can't be bad right???
David Bowers will be directing (he did Flushed Away... which I loved, and he also did the animation for The Prince of Egypt, Balto, and We're Back)
Freddie Highmore will be voicing for Astro Boy... he may not have been my first choice (he looks more like Astro boy than talks like him).
I can't contain myself I am just really excited about this, and I hope that they don't fuck it up!
