Justin Chatwin, the depicter of young warrior Goku in 'Dragonball Evolution', let it slip that the script for the sequel, allegedly entitled 'Dragonball Reborn', has been written.
While "Dragonball Evolution" won't be opened in theaters until April 8, sequel talk has come up to the surface. In an interview with SciFiNow last month, leading man Justin Chatwin spilled the bean on the potential follow-up of this manga adaptation, hinting further that the script has even been written down.
"If there were to be a sequel I think it...well, I know that it would go to a really interesting place, because they already have the second script written," claimed the 26-year-old. Revealing further on the direction of the sequel, which is tentatively reported to be titled "Dragonball Reborn", he stated, "The second one goes more into the whole legacy and the genealogy of Dragonball. It goes more in-depth into a real Dragonball series, the kind of intergalactic world of Dragonball."
"Dragonball Evolution" revolves around Goku's journey to collect all seven Dragonballs. Having had one of the balls, the young warrior must now gather around six others before Lord Piccolo gets his hands on them and destroys Earth. With the help from Master Roshi and Bulma, he embarks on a quest to save the Earth.
Adapted from Akira Toriyama's famous Japanese manga of the same name, the live-action film is directed and co-scripted by James Wong and produced by Stephen Chow. Aside from Justin Chatwin, the 20th Century Fox film also features among others James Marsters as Piccolo, Emmy Rossum as Bulma, Chow Yun-Fat as Master Roshi, Joon Park as Yamcha and Jamie Chung as Chi Chi.
