David Bowers and Maryann Garger - Astro Boy

Q1: Nicolas Cage tried to make a live action movie of this comic, I think a couple years ago.
DB: He did, he talked about it.

Q2: He did?
DB: No, he talked to us about trying to get it off, he didn't know Cage was in our movie, you know Nicolas Cage is in our movie?

Q3: Yeah, yeah, he did voice of a character, though this is animation...
DB: It's animation, but he's playing the same role in our movie that he would have played in the live action movie, which is Astro Boy's father.

Q4: So how this project(unidentifed words) because of Nick Cage, wanted to make this movie, he approached you guys to make animation, or you guys approached him to voice over?
MG: No, Imagi Studios, the CEO of Imagi Studios, is Francis Cow, who really had a passion for the property, and acquired the rights from Tezuka Productions, the Nicolas Cage part of it, I think probably his, I'm not sure the details why that live action movie never worked...
