Stiller Sequel, Emmerich Remake, Live-Action Dragonball Z to Film in Montreal

Hmm...maybe Emmerich is really directing Dragonball Z, and Stiller is starring in it...

Looking for a job in the movie industry? It might not be a bad idea to move to Montreal, where — as The Montreal Gazette reports — three big-budget projects are scheduled to start filming in the next nine months.

The movies — all of which are being distributed by 20th Century Fox — include the Night at the Museum sequel, Another Night; Roland Emmerich‘s Fantastic Voyage remake; and the long-planned Dragonball Z adaptation. It’s this last title that’s probably of most interest to the RT faithful, and though the article isn’t exactly long on details, it does mention that each of the films carries a budget of at least $100 million, and says all three of them are “expected to wrap production by next July.”

The Dragonball Z anime series, which originally ran from 1989 to 1996 (and was itself a sequel to the 1986-1989 Dragon Ball series), adapted creator Akira Toriyama’s hugely successful 1984-1995 manga for television audiences. With all that history — not to mention a devoted worldwide fanbase — mounting a live-action film adaptation is much easier said than done, which is part of why Fox has had Dragonball Z in and out of development for years. Some fans had (perhaps wishfully) given it up for dead, but it’s apparently on a fast track; presumably, we’ll be hearing more details soon.

For more information on these projects — including a few extra tidbits about Another Night and Fantastic Voyage — click the link below.
