Dragon Ball Z Live Movie

Well, news has been circulating around for 2 to 3 days already, so I'll just let you all know.

Stephen Chow, the guy who brought you "Shaolin Soccer" and "Kung-fu Hustler" with Chinese-American director James Wong, whose credits include "Final Destination" and the TV series "The X Files," will direct the movie.

Justin Chatwin (“The Invisible”, “War of the Worlds”) will play the role of Goku, the protector of the dragonballs and the hero that beats up the bad guys bent on attacking the Earth and other worlds under his protection. Playing the part of the villainous demon Piccolo will be James Marsters, best known for his popular role as the vampire Spike on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” as well as a turn as a nemesis for the young Superman on “Smallville”.

Being a Dragon Ball fan myself till Z only as GT wasn't Akira Toriyama's work, I'll see how the movie goes. Best if they do it in Japanese! With subs of course and dubs for those lazy bumps who don't like reading the subs.

It's becoming Dragon Boycott instead of Dragon Ball now!
