IMAGI to host CG film remake's director David Bowers, producer Maryann Garger
Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The computer animation outfit IMAGI Studios and the film distributor Summit Entertainment will be hosting a booth (#3530) where visitors can get an "Astro Boy Hair Makeover" at Comic-Con International on Saturday at San Diego, California. From 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., fans can get "the superhero's iconic, black pointed-hair look" from Osamu Tezuka's classic manga and anime. The booth will also host the film's director David Bowers (Shark Tale) and producer Maryann Garger, and oversized Astro Boy bags will be given out throughout the convention. Summit Entertainment will release the film, which features an all-star cast led by Freddie Highmore (Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Spiderwick Chronicles) in the title role and Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock, National Treasure), worldwide in 2009.
