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.
According to Life & Style, He’s Just Not That Into You has unfortunately been pushed back to February 6, 2009.
This is – hopefully – the last time that I post about this matter. It truly is insane how it has been blown out of proportion!
As he headed to a Hollywood fundraiser, Sen. Barack Obama downplayed the idea that he hobnobs with actress Scarlett Johansson.
The movie star, who campaigns actively for the Illinois senator, recently told the website Politico, “You’d imagine that someone like the senator who is constantly traveling and constantly ‘on’ – how can he return these personal emails? But he does, and in his off-time I know he also calls people who have donated the minimum to thank them.”
She said Obama had responded to one note about a debate, commenting to her that the questions were “silly.”
But speaking to reporters aboard his campaign plane, Obama said the actress doesn’t have his personal email address. “She sent one email to Reggie, who forwarded it to me,” Obama said, referring to his 26-year-old personal assistant, Reggie Love. “I write saying, ‘thank you Scarlett for doing what you do,’ and suddenly we have this email relationship”

Hollywood actress Scatlett Johansson has denied reports she is supporting presidential candidate Barack Obama because she has “a crush” on him.
The 23-year-old star has long voiced her support for Obama in his race for the White House in the upcoming U.S. elections – but Johansson was recently accused of favouring the politician because of his good looks and not focusing on his policies.
But a source tells the New York Daily News that the rumours are just not true: “She is a surrogate (Obama campaigner). They’re not exchanging love letters. Everyone seems to be forgetting that she’s engaged.
“Kal Penn (actor and Obama supporter) is also a surrogate, and no one says he has a crush on Obama.” Johansson is currently engaged to Blade: Trinity actor Ryan Reynolds.

Scarlett Johansson has regular e-mail contact with presidential hopeful Barack Obama, but it may be because her twin brother, Hunter, works for him. Johansson said last week she offers Obama advice by e-mail and is “amazed” he finds the time to reply to her. “Someone like the senator, who is constantly traveling and constantly ‘on,’ how can he return these personal e-mails?” she gushed to Politico. Hunter, who was working as a community liaison for Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer for over a year, left that job a few weeks ago. It’s not clear what his position is within the Obama campaign. “He was one of the nicest, most unpretentious employees ever,” said one Stringer staffer. “Nobody cared he was Scarlett’s brother; we all forgot the last name. He wants to go change the world, and I guess the US president is greater than the Manhattan one,” the insider laughed.
