I found out about this thanks to Rhys-Meyers, because I was looking up the
cast of "Bend It Like Beckham" (I LOVE this movie).  All those recastings
are certainly interesting...and the web site said that Christopher Lee was a
major driving force behind getting it done.

The conceptual art looks very similar to the original animated feature in a
lot of ways, which gave me several minutes of searching to determine that
yes, it was a live action film and not another animated version.  I'm
interested to see who else is cast.
