So film? Bah humbug!
And also the fact that its anime and its...live action Wasn't there one ages ago that went horribly wrong?
Most of the story was great, but, myself into sci-fi, the idea of robots having wives and eating seems a bit too far out... [/QUOTE]
IT was never adapted into an animated feature. Besides, it would deal far better as a live action film, specifically an American live action film. The characters and the entirety of the story and plot just BEG for an adaptation.
Make it PG-13 and pull all the stops on it . Will be hard to whitewash this film since it's lead Gesicht is white ( and a robot to boot) and is followed while Astro, known as Atom in this comic series, is on the sidelines and becomes the ultimate hero in it. With good people behind this , I can see this being a great film if executed well and treated like Batman Begins of Astro Boy.
If it were me directing, I'd make a prequel film covering Atom's origins and have Urasawa/Tezuka help me keep it to their visions after it.
