Hey guys, Jana here,

New Line is looking to partner with Animal Logic (‘The Lego Movie‘) and Tezuka Productions as they work together to produce a live-action movie based on the ‘Astro Boy‘ comic book series. ‘Astro Boy‘ is not a new creation and began as a Japanese manga series from 1951 to 1968 with a vast interest worldwide. The character was adapted to a TV series in both 1980 and 2003 and in 2009 was the subject of an animated movie by Imagi Animation Studios.

The project has been underway with Animal Logic and Tezuka for a year without a lot of movement, now they have a hopeful partner and a pair of writers to write the script. Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore are the pair that are responsible for the script to ‘San Andreas‘, so a live-action ‘Astro Boy‘ will be interesting.

Movie Quotes

V:
[Evey pulls out her mace] I can assure you I mean you no harm.
Evey Hammond:
Who are you?
V:
Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond:
Well I can see that.
V:
Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
Evey Hammond:
Oh. Right.
V:
But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.
V:
Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
[carves V into poster on wall]
V:
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
[giggles]
V:
Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Evey Hammond:
Are you like a crazy person?
V:
I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking with?
Evey Hammond:
I'm Evey.
V:
Evey? E-V. Of course you are.
Evey Hammond:
What does that mean?
V:
It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and I don't believe in coincidences.
