DRAGONBALL Z LIVE-ACTION FILM PROJECT DEATH WATCH...(Originally posted here, with minor edits.)
A couple of days ago, this link would have taken you to the Internet Movie Database page with all the known, and some rumoured, information about the Dragonball Z movie.
What do you get now when you click on that link?
|Page not found|
The URL (page) you requested could not be found.
It either never existed, has been removed, or you used a mistyped URL.
While the IMDb is hardly the most reliable authority on the matter, seeing as how they listed the film as being PG-13 while it's rather difficult for a film that does not yet exist to have an MPAA rating, the page for the film being removed is a good barometer of just how much Fox has lost interest in making a film that, just three years ago, they said was on the "fast track" to being produced.
I only mention it on this page to mourn the loss of the IMDb message board for the live-action Dragonball Z film, which was a very reliable source of amusing wankage from gullible kids who still believe every stupid rumour phony industry insiders have circulated on the Internet over the years just to yank their chains, like the one about how alleged Dragonball Z director Roland Emmerich fired alleged Goku actor Hugh Jackman for holding up production on the film, despite the fact that it's rather impossible for an actor to hold up production on a film that has yet to go into production as well as the fact that Emmerich was in Montreal filming The Day After Tomorrow at the time people claim he fired Jackman.
Well, there's still this page to keep the "dream" alive.
(Yes, before anyone e-mails me about it, Ben Ramsey was indeed commissioned to write a script, but that was a full year ago now, and there's been zilch in the way of news since. While it's always possible that things are happening behind-the-scenes that we don't know about yet, the longer we go without any substantial announcements, the more reasonable it is to conclude that Fox has pulled the plug on the project.)
