18 June 2008 @ 7:51Astro Boy (2009) – Freddie Highmore and Nicolas Cage
I’m not sure why I haven’t heard of this sooner, but there will be an Astro Boy feature film released in 2009 with the voice talents of Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy and Eugene Levy and will be directed by David Bowers (Flushed Away).
This has the potential to be an awesome movie.
Set in futuristic Metro City, Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist in the image of the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving man’s expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the father who had rejected him.
