Simon Cowell Finds A Star In ‘Betty Boop’

Simon Cowell has finally found a singer that fits to his exacting standards in the shrill helium-voiced cartoon flapper, Betty Boop. The talent show judge is hoping to cash in on Depression era nostalgia by developing a feature-length “hybrid animated comedy” based on the cartoon character. The movie will be a musical and animated by the studio that made The Lego Movie. It’s unclear how they intend to make a three-dimensional Boop not look super-creepy or how Cowell will make Minnie the Moocher a radio hit again.

If this is a success, we can anticipate Cowell participating more in the film world with the inevitable sequel, From Magoo To Betty. (Variety)
