Chinese SlamDunk –

not to be confused with the Taiwanese SlamDunk!

Of course, this is referring to live-action movie remakes of Inoue Takehiko’s manga series by the same name.

Apparently, Chinese fans of the SlamDunk! anime are heated about the live-action Chinese adaptation, threatening to throw down with stars Li Yi Lin and Li Xue Qin who will be playing Sakuragi Hanamichi and Rukawa Kaede, respectively.  All because Li and Li don’t accurately portray the anime characters who are based on the manga characters who are based on Dennis Rodman and Michael Jordan.  Jeez!  Get it right, people!

Incidentally, the Taiwanese live-action movie adaptation starts shooting in 2007 and will star Jay Chou with a cameo by Yao Ming.
