Simon Cowell on Betty Boop
"Betty is an icon, and one of the biggest stars in the world – I’m thrilled to be working with her,” Cowell said. “Betty, I’ve worked with some serious divas but I think you could be the biggest of them all!"
Betty Boop the Movie
It was announced in 2014 that Simon Cowell will be making a movie featuring Betty Boop (Betty Boop the Movie (2015) - (2016)). The project had been in the works for several months with Fleischer Studios, owner of the Betty Boop charater, partnering with Syco Entertainment and Animal Logic — which performed the animation for "The Lego Movie" — on a music-driven hybrid animated comedy. Rumor has it that the whole project has been abandoned.
