Wong Directs Dragonball Z Movie

When the list of pre-strike priority projects got leaked the other week, one of the surprise inclusions was the long-troubled live-action “Dragonball Z” movie.

The film had been in development a few years back and then seem to have stalled. As the craze for all things DBZ did down, it was expected that the film was also going to quietly disappear as well.

Now, CHUD reports that former “X-Files” helmer turned big screen director James Wong (“Final Destination,” “The One”) will write and direct the project which goes into production as early as this November in Canada.

Casting notices are now out for the characters of Goku, Bulma, Yamcha, Master Roshi, Mai, Lord Piccolo, Chi Chi and Gohan. Check out the article for the full character breakdowns.
