The rumor that 'Dragonball' is in jeopardy because the higher ups at the 20th Century Fox weren't impressed of what they see has been dished out.
FilmJunk's speculation about "Dragonball Evolution" being in danger of getting canceled seems to hold no truth in it. Following the outing of their report concerning the live-action adaptation film, the movie's official blog, Dragonball the Movie, goes to the bottom of the story and allegedly gets a positive response from the 20th Century Fox.
According to the blog site, the studio have insisted that the information shared earlier was a false one and that the James Wong-directed movie is still slated to be released in April 2009. Supporting Dragonball the Movie was Superhero Flix which noted that a source close to the project has said that the first edit is done and Fox's toppers are digging what they have seen.
Flix went further by stating that their scooper has seen the completed movie and he described it as "pretty darn awesome". Adding to that comment, he even suggested that a sequel may be in consideration saying, "There is certainly talk about a sequel. I have no doubt that it will happen. I'm sure that it will be a trilogy."
Based on Akira Toriyama's popular Japanese manga, "Dragonball" tells the story of a humanoid alien named Goku who protects the Earth from invading rogues trying to get a hold on the mystical and powerful orbs scattered across the Blue Planet. Produced by Stephen Chow, the film puts Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Emmy Rossum, Eriko Tamura, Chow Yun-Fat, Jamie Chung and many others on the cast ensemble. It will hit theaters on April 10, 2009.
