Simon Cowell to produce Betty Boop movie

Los Angeles: Music mogul Simon Cowell is ready to put his power behind a new movie, involving iconic cartoon character Betty Boop.

Betty Boop`s past appearances on screen include Max Fleischer`s `Talkartoons`, after which she got her own cartoon series. She also made a cameo in 1988 film `Who Framed Roger Rabbit`.

This upcoming project, however, will be her first music-driven, hybrid animated comedy.

The British music mogul is collaborating with Fleischer Studios, which owns the cartoon character, and Australian digital production house Animal Logic for the project, reports a website.

"Betty is an icon, and one of the biggest stars in the world - I`m thrilled to be working with her. Betty, I`ve worked with some serious divas, but I think you could be the biggest of them all," Cowell said of the character, famous for her trademark bob hair and mini dress.
