Right about now, Betty Boop is probably reapplying her lipstick to prepare for her big-screen debut.
Last seen in a cameo during 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Boop is about to get her first feature-length film, and Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment is part of the production team behind it. Teaming with Animal Logic Entertainment and Fleischer Studios, Syco Entertainment is finally giving the 1930’s cartoon flapper the movie she deserves. A press release describes the film as “a 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,” Cowell said in a press release. “Betty, I’ve worked with some serious divas but I think you could be the biggest of them all!”
Betty’s response? “I’m so excited to return to the big screen—and I only work with the best! Let’s have some fun, Simon. Boop-Oop-a-Doop!”
