More information about the Astro Boy movie has been revealed recently. According to Summit Entertainment the movie will be made in partnership with Imagi Studios. This is going to be Astro Boy’s first CGI feature film.
Already, a number of top-tier stars are involved in the movie. Such stars as Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy, Eugene Levy and Freddie Highmore are going to be voice talents for the movie.
Astro Boy is the creation of Ozamu Tezuka, the acknowledged god of anime.
More actors have been announced for the impending Bad Lieutenant remake that will be directed by acclaimed director Werner Herzog.
Among the actors announced are Val Kilmer, Fairuza Balk, Jennifer Coolidge, Vondie Curtis Hall, Shawn Hatosy, Denzel Whitaker and Xzibit. The actors join both Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes in the cast.
Other actors announced were Shea Wigham, Katie Chonacas, and Brad Dourif.
Film buffs will now that the original Bad Lieutenant, which was shown in 1992, featured Harvey Keitel in one of the strongest performances of his career. Abel Ferrara directed the original.
Both Pierce Brosnan and Nicolas Cage are set to star in The Ghost, a political thriller under the direction of Roman Polanski. The movie is based on the Robert Harris novel that tells the story of a ghostwriter hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister. In the course of his work he discovers secrets that would endanger his life.
Brosnan is set to play the role of the prime minister and Cage is the ghostwriter.
Shooting for the movie will begin in Europe this fall.
In Hollywood, nothing is sacred — and nothing proves this more than news that Bad Lieutenant is going to be remade.
Yes, the NC-17 rated crime classic directed by Abel Ferrara and starring Harvey Keitel is going to be remade and it is going to star Nicolas Cage. I have no idea what made them think that a film as perfect as the original movie should even be considered for a remake. Keitel was awesome as the depraved NY policeman. He completely owned that role and I don’t see anyone else doing his role justice.
One thing that has at least stopped me from completely freaking out is that Werner Herzog is going to direct the remake. But Nic Cage? Is he even willing to go full frontal or even masturbate just like Keitel did?
