Astro Boy star Johny Dang is bringing back one of his most iconic roles: the space cadet, a role that had been played by actor Peter Fonda.
In a recent interview with THR, Dang spoke candidly about the new movie, which is slated for release in 2018.
“I’m excited about this,” he said, when asked about the film’s casting.
“Because I feel like we’re at a point where we’re moving towards a new era of space exploration.”
Dang, who plays the character on the film, was asked what he’d like to see for the movie in the future.
“We’re moving into a new age, and it’s a new world.
I don’t know what I’d like,” he responded.
“It’s a great story to tell, but I’m excited to tell it.”
The film follows the adventures of Johny, who joins the Galactic Federation and becomes a space cadets.
The film is being produced by Fonda, who previously worked with Dang on the upcoming film, Interstellar, and his upcoming role in the sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
