Astro Boy film back on track

astroboy-stillAnime fans rejoice! For the Astro Boy feature film is back on track, according to Variety, after Imagi Entertainment completed a round of financing, garnering $25 million and hiring back most of its staff members to complete the work after they called a halt last month.

With the cash influx, the film—which will be directed by David Bowers (TMNT) and feature the voices of actors including Kristen Bell, Nicolas Cage, Eugene Levy, Donald Sutherland—should be on schedule to make its October 23 release date.

Additionally, these additional funds will also help the company develop previously announced projects Gatchaman and Tusker for the big screen.

Is this the kind of economic stimulus President Obama meant last night?
