Bobby Coleman will play a boy who befriends a robot on the run from malevolent corporate interests in "Robosapien: Rebooted," which has begun filming in New Orleans.
The cast also includes Penelope Ann Miller, David Eigenberg, Holliston Coleman, Joaquim de Almeida and Kim Coates.
Avi Arad and Steven Paul are producing the movie, based on Wow Wee's Robosapien remote-controlled robot, under their respective Arad Prods. and Crystal Sky Pictures banners.
Senn McNamara ("Bratz") is directing the script by Arad and Max Botkin from Botkin's story.
Avi Arad, the former Marvel Studio executive and producer of the "X-Men" and "Spider-Man" franchises, has joined forces with Steven Paul's Crystal Sky Pictures to launch a movie inspired by Robosapien, the best-selling intelligent robot.
Variety says Arad has written the script for Robosapien with Max Botkin, and attached Bratz helmer Sean McNamara to direct. The $25 million-$30 million live-action/CGI project is scheduled to shoot November in the U.S.
The story concerns a scientist working on artificial intelligence who creates robots for humanitarian purposes, only to discover that the corporation he works for intends them for military use. He steals one of his creations, a robot boy named Toby, who, by a series of accidents, gets lost and broken, and then found and fixed by the lonely 11-year-old son of a harassed single mother.
The robot and boy become friends, and embark on a series of adventures, pursued by the authorities, climaxing with them having to rescue the scientist and the mother from prison.
Arad, whose own background is as a toy inventor, has personally designed Toby as the latest model in the Robosapiens range, to go into shops alongside the movie's release.
Wowwee Ltd. today announced that they have joined forces with Arad Productions to bring Robosapien to the big screen. The feature film, which will combine live-action and CGI is targeted for release in 2009.
With worldwide sales of more that 4 million units, Robosapien is the most popular entertainment robot in the world, and has become the standard by which all other Robots are measured. A beloved icon, Robosapien and his Wowwee Robotics "family" are currently featured premiums in McDonald's® Happy Meal® and Mighty Kids Meal® program.
"We are thrilled to be working with Avi Arad," said Richard Yanofsky, president of Wowwee Group. "He is the ideal person to successfully translate Robosapien's lifelike characteristics and endearing personality into a compelling and entertaining story. Watching Arad bring Robosapien to life will be a dream come true."
"The toy industry is my first love," said Arad. "And Robosapien has intrigued me since he was introduced. He has all the right elements to make a family feature film with the ability to touch people on an emotional level."
The former CEO and Chairman of Marvel Studios, Avi Arad, toy industry legend and a self proclaimed comic book fanatic, has been the driving force behind the enormously successful resurgence of movies based on comic book characters.
Arad is the producer of Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3; X-Men: The Last Stand; Ghost Rider; The Hulk; Daredevil; The Punisher; Elektra; and Fantastic Four. He is the executive producer of Spider-Man; X-Men and X2: X-Men United; Blade, Blade II and Blade: Trinity. [...]
