    With the success of the Transformers this summer the flood gates have opened up big. Hollywood already has a variety of adaptations in the works. It seems that "anime" has finally made it big (much like the recent comic book and fantasy movies) and this is only the beginning.

    We've already got a bevy of movies on the way.

    Speed Racer (2008) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0811080/
    Dragonball (2008) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1098327/
    Gatchaman (2009) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0818257/
    Astroboy (2009) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375568/
    Battle Angel (2009) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0437086/

    :werd: This reminds me of the gold rushes in the 1800's. Everyone rushes to mine gold, then since everyone has it, the value of gold goes down to next to nothing. Once everyone starts rushing to make anime movies then they won't be cool anymore.

    they need to make it true to the anime, like dbz the whole movie is goku + bad guy charging their lazers and yelling at each other and then firing their lazers and yelling and the end. and speed racer needs to have the dude talking while showing only one frame and his mouth moving lol (i think that one was speed racer, right?)

    they'll probably make some sappy ending that will at least make more sense... the US general public wouldn't like the original ending.

    Hell I like lots of weird shit and the ending of that really lowered my overall opinion of the series (which wasn't all that epic IMO to begin with).

    Director of Dragonball also made..... The One :uh:


    I got hope for Battle Angel. James Cameron seems like he is really into the source material.

    weta works, the sfx crew behind LOTR & King Kong are supposed to be on the Evangelion movie as well Halo, but either have yet to make any real progress so ya.

    As for Speed Racer, that shit looks terrible! When i was a kid i couldn't stand those stupid Wacky Races cartoons and this movie reminds me of utter fail and aids that was that show.

    "Chow Yun Fat Boards Dragonball"

    "Chow Yun-Fat will star in 20th Century Fox's live-action adaptation of Dragonball, says The Hollywood Reporter.

    Chow will play Master Roshi. He rounds out a cast that includes Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Emmy Rossum and Jamie Chung.

    Dragonball is shooting in Mexico City and Los Angeles.

    The film, directed by James Wong, follows Goku (Chatwin), a warrior alien who protects the Earth from an endless stream of rogues bent on dominating the universe and controlling mystical objects known as Dragon Balls. Stephen Chow is producing.

    Master Roshi is Goku's mentor, helping him achieve the highest state of fighting and spiritual powers."
