Simon Cowell resurrects Betty Boop for feature film

LOS ANGELES, Aug 16:  Music mogul Simon Cowell is making a new ‘Betty Boop’ movie.
The 54-year-old ‘X Factor’ boss will collaborate with Fleischer Studios, which owns the iconic cartoon character, and Australian digital production house Animal Logic, reported Ace Showbiz.
Betty has made numerous appearances on screen. She appeared on Max Fleischer’s ‘Talkartoons’ and then got her own cartoon series. She also made a cameo in 1988’s film ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’. This upcoming project, however, will be her first music-driven, hybrid animated comedy.
“Betty is an icon, and one of the biggest stars in the world – I’m thrilled to be working with her. Betty, I’ve worked with some serious divas, but I think you could be the biggest of them all,” Simon said of the feisty starlet famous for her trademark bob hair and mini dress.
Animal Logic’s CEO Zareh Nalbandian said, “I’m thrilled that Animal Logic is part of this exciting new collaboration with Betty. She’s an amazing, iconic and loved character, and we’re going to have so much fun producing her 21st century big-screen debut.” (PTI)
