Astro Boy update

The voice cast for Imagi's upcoming Astro Boy film has been announced and for some reason that surprises me, its got more than a few stars in the mix. I mean I know this is a character that has been around for quite some time now but I'm happily surprised at this voice acting pedigree.

The robotic boy himself will be voiced by Freddie Highmore. And he will be joined by the vocal talents of Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy and Eugene Levy. None of the other voice actors roles have been revealed.

Sounds like it should be a winner at least in the voice department. Lets just cross our fingers on the story :) The animated feature, Imagi's second after last summer's TMNT, is set to come out in theaters sometime next year.
