And I'll be honest, I never watched Yatterman. It seems like a huge thing in Japan though...

1st Live-Action Dragonball Poster with Son Goku Posted (Updated)
posted on 2008-07-19 06:49 EDT
Rear view of leading actor Justin Chatwin in orange gi with kame kanji

The Sankei Shimbun paper has posted the first poster from the Dragonball live-action film that features a main character on Friday. The poster portrays Canadian actor Justin Chatwin (War of the Worlds, The Invisible, Lost television series), who stars as Son Goku, in his familiar orange gi martial arts uniform complete with the kanji for kame ("turtle" for his mentor Master Roshi or Kame Sennin) on the back. Just as in the previous teaser poster, the new poster's Japanese text reads when translated: "The legend comes to life." The new poster also adds the following text: "Opens worldwide at maximum speed on March 13, 2009."

Twentieth Century Fox signed director James Wong (Final Destination, X-Files television series, The One) to adapt Akira Toriyama's shonen fighting manga. Viz Media publishes the original manga in North America, while Funimation distributes the anime version.

Update: The second tagline can be translated as the following: "World's earliest opening [in Japan] on March 13, 2009."

Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Film in Development at Fox
posted on 2008-07-22 20:03 EDT
Rights recently signed up by producer Erwin Stoff (Matrix, A Scanner Darkly)

The IFMagazine.com entertainment website reports that film producer Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, A Scanner Darkly) is developing a live-action adaptation of Sunrise's Cowboy Bebop multi-genre action anime series for Fox. Stoff told the website that the project is "in the really early stages" since the parties "just signed it the other day." Shinichiro Watanabe's original anime follows the motley crew of the spaceship Bebop as it travels throughout the solar system in search of the next job. Stoff promised "a real degree of faithfulness," and added, “When I met with them in Japan, one of the first things that I brought up was the experience that we had on A Scanner Darkly, and how hard we worked to remain faithful to Philip K. Dick, and that was our big concern here.”

The anime distributor Bandai Entertainment and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block released the original 1998 television series in the United States, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the subsequent 2001 animated movie. The anime was also adapted into two separate manga series, and Tokyopop released both manga series in North America. A Bandai Entertainment representative was unable to publicly comment on this report.

Thank you to Meghan Grant and Starks for the news tips.

Honestly I hope they don't mash up the entire series of Bebop into one movie. That be too much. Not even if they did the finale of the movie live action style shot for shot with it being in the Church with Spike against Vicious.

Is it wrong for me to hope for just a new tale with some things mixed in but leave Vicious and Julia out.

I waqtched Zebraman a few weeks back and loved it. Might be my new, favorite superhero movie.

Because it was not nailed down or placed behind locked doors..............
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"
