Like most of you reading this now, UK brothers Harry and George Kirby (aka K&K Productions) were not very pleased with the live-action “Dragonball” movie that Fox turned out a few years back. Realizing that they could probably do a much better job, the brothers have started raising funds to produce and shoot a 4-5 minute trailer that they promise will be “packed full of the greatest moments and favourite characters from the Saiyan Saga”.
The hope, of course, is to garner enough interest to fund a full-length version, perhaps even with studio support, similar to what happened with Kevin Tancharoen’s “Mortal Kombat: Legacy”. Tancharoen funded his own “Mortal Kombat” short film that set the Interwebs on fire and convinced Warner Bros. to fully back a live-action web series. The studio then handed Tancharoen the reins over to an honest-to-goodness feature-length reboot of the franchise.
So yes, it can work.
