Disturbing anime live action movies coming up

I've read some scary news on the web. Some of them have already came true. Here's the list.

1. Dragon Ball Evolution


Oh yeah, it's serious enough. They have the Dragon Ball Evoluvation website for it as well.

You can already check out the cast from IMDB. It's not looking good. Not looking good at all.

I can imagine doing a 3D animation movie on Dragon Ball easily. There are countless 3D Dragon Ball computer games available and they show viability. But live action? Seriously? Why would anyone want to take a highly stylized comic and turn it into live action? Because they can?

2. Cowboy Bebop (live action)
When I first read it on, I was stunned beyond words. Cowboy Bebop is one of my favourite anime.

There can only be two outcome to this. It's either going to amazing, or it's going to stink so very bad.

3. Akira (live action)
Warner Brothers has acquired the rights to make this masterpiece anime into two movies. The news might be from Feb 2008 but it still sends chills down my spine.
