Besides her part in this adaptation movie, the BAFTA recipient for her performance in "Lost in Translation" has several project under her sleeves awaiting for release, such as "Vicky Cristina Barcelona", "He's Just Not That Into You" and "The Spirit".

Concerning "Astro Boy", the animation motion picture is an adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's classic manga about a young robot made to replace its creator's son but ends up being Metro City's hero.
