"Astro Boy" Will Not Fly into Theaters? Production Stopped? 

Back in February last year, "Astro Boy," the movie, was going full speed ahead. Freddie Highmore was supposed to voice the animated young robot.

But word is in -- according to Steve Hulett (Business Representative) and Kevin Koch (President), both from The Animation Guild, the production on Imagi's "Astro Boy" appears to have shut down!

Slashfilm is saying:

Koch reported, “We’ve heard from one of Imagi’s Los Angeles animators that he was called at home on Saturday, Jan. 24, and told that the studio was out of cash, and that he should not report to work on Monday. Since this is all happening over the weekend, we’ve been unable to get any confirmation from official studio sources.”

Will this be a temporary or permanent shut down? We'll let you know, stay tuned!
