Journey to the West Movie

I don't want to let myself get too excited about this, but Journey to the West may be made into a new movie with Neil Gaiman writing, Del Toro directing, and James Cameron advising... maybe on FX?


Journey to the West is the iconic Chinese story of the monkey king, Son Wukong, and his many adventures.  Most of us are at least familiar with the story through its adaptation into the original Dragonball.


I fell in love with the story when a Korean friend of mine introduced me to it when I was in middle school.  My friends and I used to sit around and listen to him recounting the story.   

Should this movie happen, YAY, if not, it is only a matter of time until someone makes it.
