THR is reporting that a live action adaptation of Astro Boy is in development
Australia’s Animal Logic Entertainment has partnered with Japan’s Tezuka Productions to develop a live-action feature adaptation of the iconic character Astro Boy.
Zareh Nalbandian of Animal Logic Entertainment will produce and Jason Lustacting with Mike Callaghan and Reuben Liber from Ranger 7 Films are set to be executive producers.
Zareh Nalbandian said:
“We’ve seen him as a manga, an anime and an animated movie but we’ve never seen him as a live-action movie or him as a superhero……We actually see him in the same league as an Iron Man…..We want to make it aspirational but not soft.”
Animal Logic is most known for its special effects work on Happy Feet and has been working on Avengers: Age of Ultron
