The somewhat highly anticipated live action DRAGONBALL movie was originally scheduled for an August release, but Fox announced that they will now release the film on April 3, 2009. The release date is so that the SFX companies Image Engine and Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. will have more time to work on the post-production process.
DRAGONBALL has completed principal photography over the weekend in Mexico with a series of shoots at night. Justin Chatwin takes the role of DB hero Goku, with James Marsters (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) playing the film’s villain Piccolo. Emmy Rossum, Joon Park, Jamie Chung, Eriko Tamura, Randall Duk Kim, and Chow Yun-Fat co-star. Stephen Chow is producer from a script from director James Wong (FINAL DESTINATION).
Look for DRAGONBALL on April 3, 2009 from 20th Century Fox.
