Good News: 20th Century Fox are making a Dragon Ball Z movie.
Bad News: James Wong, the guy behind the shitty Final Destination films is the guy directing it.
CHUD learned that Wong is writing/directing the big screen live action adaptation of the popular manga and anime series through a just released casting notice. The site has included the casting breakdown.
Created by Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball Z tells the story of an alien sent to destroy earth, who has a change of heart and decides to join the humans in their battles. I’m not quite sure the series could ever be done in live action and not look stupid. But who knows, Hollywood executives thought the same thing about Batman before Tim Burton came around (A guy in a bat costume running around?). But with Wong in the helm, I don’t have much faith for this film adaptation.
The movie is ecpected to begin production in Montreal in November.
