Japanese film director Kiriya Kazuakii announced in his twitter that the database entry of a new live action movie of Dragon Ball on the International Movie Database (IMDb) is a false rumor. He resent IMDb for spreading the false information and sent a demand for IMDb to correct the mistake.

Dragon Ball Reboot on IMDb

According to Hollywood Channel, IMDb often add rumor-base entries, but listing Yamazaki Takashi ("Space Battleship Yamato") as the director, Kiriya ("CASSHERN") and Toriyama as the writers and Jon Foo as Goku had made the information plausible.

Hah, well that's good. The first one was so damn lame.


Yeah, it was a terrible movie in my opinion. Even if I pretended it had nothing to do with the original Dragonball, the movie itself wasn't good at all.

I knew it was something fishy about that IMDb's info of a new Dragon Ball Live Action. But I'm glad they won't make more of it.

Will good they shouldn't think about doing a film. The series has been already been raped enough.

I knew it was crap many moons ago. If it's true that bleach will be getting an adaption, then I'll say it's crap many moons ago.

Basilisk adaptation Shinobi is quite decent IMO.

Thats good to know. But its too late. The whole 5 minutes I have watched of Dragonball: Evolution has left me with psychological scars. I mean. The Kamehameha wave just doesn't work like that. Its like healing with bullets. I knew from day one it would be horrible but you can't blame me it was on HBO one day and I was curious.

Just don't open the box.
