You have probably already read it elsewhere, but it would behoove us to update with the information, as well. Via IGN (and note the update to their own report at the end):

September 4, 2007 – It looks like 20th Century Fox is rushing the long-awaited live-action movie adaptation of Dragon Ball Z into production before the looming industry strikes happen next year.

According to the Montreal Gazette, Dragon Ball Z will shoot in Montreal sometime in the coming year; while an exact start date isn’t known yet, the paper reports that production is expected to be completed by next July.

Dragon Ball Z is based on the manga by Akira Toriyama, which also beget an anime series of the same name. There’s no word yet on who will write or direct the picture.

UPDATED: 20th Century Fox has informed IGN that this report cannot be confirmed as neither start dates nor locations are locked in at this point.

Huh. Basically, IGN grabbed the same news that everyone else did from the Montreal Gazette, and then Fox got back with them and said something to the effect of, “Well, we have it, but let’s not actually go ahead and confirm anything about the movie.”

So basically… we are in the same position we were in back in 2002. Great.
