(SPOILER) A James Marsters' Dragonball interview. This is a TV Guide interview with James Marsters promoting Dragonball Evolution, he says a sequel is green-lit. There's another interview with him over at iFMagazine.

And he's worried about looking too old to play Spike?

He looks younger there than he did when AtS finished!
Haha, i noticed that too. He's looking great. I think now would be the perfect time for a Buffy or Spike movie. He's doing a lot of promotion for DragonBall so his name is getting more known. And i have no doubt that this movie will do well, it's the perfect kids movie.
I was just thinking the same, debw! Ehi, it took 14 hours of make up to make him look old, after all!!! (well, maybe the green part also took time, but still...)
And I'm starting to love this Dragonball thing.. He might look "old and ugly and green" in the movie, but we're getting to see/read a lot of him in interviews and such... Me happy :-]
My god Jimmy, you're looking wonderful there. *g*

A fun interview.
As it sounds as if he was told the green-lit thing by the people at TV-guide channel and the fact that it hasn't been reported anywhere official that I can find I'd take that with a fair bit of salt.

However, it is true that JM looks ridiculously good in that clip.
"As it sounds as if he was told the green-lit thing by the people at TV-guide channel and the fact that it hasn't been reported anywhere official that I can find I'd take that with a fair bit of salt"

They mention that Justin C who plays Goku said it in his interview that the sequel was greenlit. Not that hard to believe, the movie has almost made all it's money back and that's without dvd sales.
So why hasn't this news been picked up? The actors have all been talking about how the sequel is already written but as of Monday the director was saying the studio had made no decision about going ahead with a sequel and was waiting to see how this one did.
"The movie has almost made all it's money back and that's without dvd sales."

And before it's even opened in most of it's major markets

It's not getting blockbuster numbers but it had done well over $25,000,000 by last weekend in Asia, France and Russia alone.

However I agree with Helcat that talk of a sequel being greenlit is probably premature; though "Dragonball Reborn" does have an IMDB Pro listing with a 2011 release date so who knows?

In the meantime I am trying and failing to keep up with the amazing quantity of Google alerts for interviews, videos and reviews and rejoicing at all the publicity James is getting

Oh and noting that James is quoted as saying

" If they don't do a sequel I'm going to be a sad,wet puppy"


We can't have that now, can we ? ;)
I think all of the actors have been *signed* for sequels and they're waiting to see if Fox pulls the trigger (see IF Magazine interview).
