As reported on comingsoon.net:
Screenwriter Ben Ramsey (“The Big Hit”) has signed to adapt Dragonball Z for the big screen for 20th Century Fox, reports Variety. Dragonball Z was adapted from the “Dragonball” manga created by Akira Toriyama and later developed into a Japanese anime series.
“Dragonball Z” follows the adventures of an adult humanoid alien who’s just discovered that he was sent to Earth to blend in and destroy our population but instead elects to protect it from an oncoming alien onslaught.
Ramsey recently wrote the adaptation of Marvel’s Luke Cage at Sony’s Columbia Pictures, as well as Static for Columbia-based producer Neal Moritz.
Nothing makes sense with this news lately. Fox does not want to make the movie, yet they have optioned it, but keep denying it, and now there is a screen writer?
Thanks to forum friend Nyogo for the tip.
