‘Astro Boy’ To Get Live Action Treatment


It’s not like I have to tell you this, but comic book movies have been all the rage lately, and studio shave been churning out every comic property they can find that comes with its own built in name recognition. However, now that Deadpool is breaking records, studios seem to be taking notice that audiences are in the mood for something different to go with their popcorn, but after the dismal box office of The Wachowski’s Speed Racer, Hollywood has been reluctant to delve into the world of Manga, that is, until now.
