ASTRO BOY

Imagi, who brought us the CG-animated and unfortunately under-appreciated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles revamp TMNT, today announced the main voice cast for their upcoming ASTRO BOY, the CG-animated feature adaptation of the Japanese manga series of the same name. Joining Freddie Highmore as the titular character will be Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy and Eugene Levy.

Under FLUSHED AWAY director David Bowers, the film centers on an inventor who creates the titular powerful robot who becomes a superhero in the fictional Metro City and who, in the midst of a rift with his creator, must muster all his strength to fight a powerful alien menace. The film's set for release sometime next year.

Extra Tidbit: The original Astro Boy was first broadcast in Japan from from 1963 to 1966.
