I'm sure this is old news to most of you, but to those of you who don't know there will be a CG-Animated Astro Boy film being made which is scheduled for release next year. The confirmed cast are as follows:
Freddie Highmore as Astro Boy
Nicholas Cage as Dr. Tenma
Bill Nighy as Dr. Ochanomizu (Elefun in USA)
Donald Sutherland as General Stone
and Scarlett Johansson, Nathan Lane, and Eugene Levy in unnamed roles as of late
I just got into Astro Boy, and this is kind of a shock to find out all of a sudden. What worries me is that it might follow the same footsteps as the Speed Racer movie did. What do any of you think of this endeavor?
