One of next year’s films that has been a little under the fanboy radar is the upcoming adaptation of Osamu Tezuka’s classic manga, Astro Boy about a young super-powered robot.

No word yet on her role, but Scarlett will join some sizeable voice talent alongside Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Bill Nighy, Nathan Lane, Eugene Levy and Freddie Highmore (as Astro Boy himself).

Everything I’ve seen in regards to the production looks they’re getting it perfect and it sounds like well-deserved promotion for the film is about to start up in a big way.

Case in point, if you’re in LA next weekend, July 3 -5, be sure to check out Anime Expo 2008 at the downtown Convention Center. Both Imagi Studios and Summit Entertainment will be there to promote the film (at booths 913 and 915) and the film’s director, David Bowers, will be around the convention as well.
