Creed III, the new movie based on the character Adonis Creed from Rocky, starring once again by Michael B Jordanwho on this occasion also served as director, his debut behind the scenes and in a role in which he has great ambition.
Of course, ambition is nothing more than that if it does not materialize and the actor and filmmaker now imagines his future as a filmmaker, maybe in a live-action of Dragon Ball Z, the legendary anime.
As he recalls a report published on the website of The Digital FixJordan has been open about his love for Akira, one of the best anime movies and how it inspired his shorts in Creed 3.
On the possibility of directing a Dragon Ball Z movie in an interview with Nerdist, the interpreter expressed: “I love challenges and that would probably be the last challenge”.
“I think it’s almost like a catch-22. Who’s going to be the first to really like to roll the dice and try it out in a real way?he continued, referring to the pressures of getting the adaptation of the fan-favorite anime series right.
The failure of Dragon Ball in live-action cinema
dragonball It is one of the most mythical manga in history, becoming one of the most acclaimed anime by the public. However, something he has not been able to count on is a decent live-action adaptation from the work of Akira Toriyama.
In the already distant 2009, Big Screen Productions, 20th Century Fox, directed by James Wong, produced by Stephen Chow and scripted by Ben Ramsey, came up with the idea of releasing Dragon Ball Evolution, the only and unfortunate film live action of Dragon Ball. Disowned, hated and detested by followers.
Perhaps Michael B. Jordan will fulfill the fandom’s dream in the future and we won’t have to keep the memory of Justin Chatwin as Goku.
