Lee Seeks Spot in DBZ Movie

Actor James Kyson Lee, who plays Ando on the popular NBC Entertainment series Heroes, says he would like to play a role in the upcoming live-action Dragon Ball Z movie, as bad-guy turned good, Yamcha (AKA: Yamucha).

The movie was in the planning stages for five years or more, and, according to Anime News Network, has recently begun production in Montreal, Canada.
The film will have a budget of USD$100 million.

As well as the Dragon Ball Z movie, there are at least four other movies in my mind that were promised a live-action adaptation (that I might be more inclined to watch) which have produced little to no results, as well as some false rumors altogether:

Maybe it's better to just stick with the anime versions of each, have the movie industry quit dangling promises of adaptations, smile, and be happy about it!

At any rate, I hope that at least this DBZ film makes it through production, so the next time a film is announced, we don't suspect someone of crying wolf. Thanks, in that respect to Transformers the movie!
