Live-Action 'ASTRO BOY' Film In-Development



Hollywood Reporter has news of another anime series getting turned into a live-action film that being the iconic Japanese series Astro Boy.

You might remember that Hollywood already tried to make an Astro Boy movie in 2009 with disastrous results.

 The animated film barely made $40M worldwide while costing $65M to make this of course doesn't include all the money spent to promote which would likely mean the film ended-up costing that studio at the very least $100M in losses.

Making a live-action film based on these numbers actually sounds insane to me unless this film is going to be made for the Japanese market. The biggest hurtle would be that the show hasn't aired in North America in over a decade and the character would likely be unknown to the aimed demographic. We already saw in 2009 what happens when kids aren't aware of the source material or don't embrace it.

This is also coming from someone who grew-up watching the anime series in the 80s and reruns in the 90s. The material works best in it's animated form and it's live-action counterpart would be super expensive to put together.

 It would honestly come down to the creative team that puts the film together as THR reveals a search for writers is about to begin.
