The Variety entertainment trade news source reports that actress Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars, Heroes, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) will be voicing the lead female role in the computer-graphics film version of Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy manga. The cast already includes Freddie Highmore in the title role of the robot boy hero, Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy, and Eugene Levy. Bell had previously played the role of Hiromi in Hiroyuki Morita and Studio Ghibli's The Cat Returns. Variety still lists Warner Brothers as being involved with the film, although Imagi Studios, the production company behind the film, announced in June that Summit Entertainment will be handling the international release.
