A few days ago we told you about a post Film Junk ran which said that the upcoming Dragonball movie, starring Justin Chatwin and Emmy Rossum, would be scrapped as Fox were not happy with it. Well the good news for Dragonball fans is that the post was complete rubbish, and the film is still on course to be released next April.
The film was completed a while ago, and the reasons for moving the film’s release date from this summer to next spring was to insure that all of the needed special effects were completed. We have a source that is very close to the film. And he/she says that the first edit is done, and that it has been shown to those “higher ups” at Fox. And that they love the finished film. Our studio contact, who we aren’t allowed to name at the moment, worked on the production, and has seen the completed movie. Everyone involved seems to think they have a hit on their hands, and he even went on to say that it was “pretty darn awesome. There is certainly talk about a sequel. I have no doubt that it will happen. I’m sure that it will be a trilogy.”
If you are anxiously awaiting Dragonball, don’t be scared by these sudden rumors that the film is being scrapped or sent directly to home video. That is certainly not the case. Dragonball is still set for a April 3rd, 2009 release date.
Hopefully we will get a trailer soon so we can judge it for ourselves.
Edit: Not all Dragonball fans will be happy, as some would rather see this movie blown up, run over and drowned.
