The big screen version of Akira Toriyama's famous Japanese manga, 'Dragonball', reportedly is going to fall back in front of the camera for some reshoots.
Less than three weeks after the outing of its teaser trailer, "Dragonball Evolution" is said to be heading back in front of the camera for some reshoots. On the matter, DbtheMovie has uncovered that Actors Access has posted an October 17 casting notice for the live-action adaptation movie, seeking for Tibetan and Nepalese actors.
It is still unclear whether the reshoots scheduled on October 30 will be used for additional scenes and/or retakes. But in the casting notice displayed by DbtheMovie, it can be seen that the casting director is looking for actors between the ages of 20 to 70 and are fluent in Nepalese or Tibetan. The 20th Century Fox have yet to release any confirmation or denial related to the reshoots report.
On other "Dragonball" news, DragonballLegends has come out with a report that the theatrical trailer of the James Wong-directed action fantasy is targeted to be released on December 12. It further speculated that the trailer may be attached to "The Day the Earth Stood Still" since it will hit the U.S. theaters on the particular date.
Adapting Akira Toriyama's famous Japanese manga of the same name, "Dragonball" focuses its story on Goku and his journey in finding Master Roshi and preparing himself to protect the seven mystical dragonballs from evil's hands. Produced by Stephen Chow, it stars Justin Chatwin, Chow Yun-Fat, James Marsters, Emmy Rossum, Eriko Tamura, Joon Park, Jamie Chung and many others. It will come out in the U.S. on April 10, 2009.
