20th Century Fox has set Justin Chatwin (The Invisible, War of the Worlds) to play Goku and James Marsters ("Smallville," "Angel," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") as the villain Piccolo in Dragon Ball Z.

In the big screen adaptation, Goku is a powerful warrior who protects the Earth from an endless stream of rogues bent on dominating the universe and controlling the mystical objects from which the film takes its name.

Actor/writer/director Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle) is producing. Final Destination helmer James Wong will direct from a script he wrote. Ben Ramsey wrote an earlier draft.

The story is based on Akira Toriyama's popular manga that has spawned graphic novels, a long-running TV series and more than 25 video games. The Jump Comics division of Tokyo-based Shueisha published the "Dragon Ball" manga.

With shooting scheduled to begin later this month, Fox will bow the sci-fi/adventure worldwide Aug. 15. Chatwin has already begun training with 87Eleven, the stunt performance company behind the action sequences in The Matrix, The Bourne Supremacy,Mr. & Mrs. Smith and 300.

0_o Chatwin better start beefing up now...

If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

I don't know whether to be disgusted that they're actually going through with the movie or who they picked for Goku and Piccolo. Yea, I'll just go vomit now for both reasons.

I stiiiiiiiiiiill wanna watch the Gundam live action and this one's keeping me interested to the beam, for it's awesome awfulness? Maybe.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Everyone is going to bitch about this movie for God knows what reason.

1. Everyone bitches about DBZ in general, so why care about it now?

2. There is no way in HELL the movie was ever going to be good in the first place. The characters will look nothing like they do in the anime, probably won't even be dressed the same.

3. C'mon! You have to go see it, because it IS going to be horrible, cheesy, and make for a lot of good laughs about how bad they screwed up a already screwed up anime. X'D

Don't get yourselves too worked up over nothing peoples. :P

Though very valid points I'm still not seeing it, can't justify seeing it with the price of movie tickets. I'll wait till it hits DVD and rent it so I can see and laugh at it.

Yeah man WTF. I remember a few months ago Ticket prices went up 2 dollars in 3 weeks.

I luckily know someone that gets us tickets to special showings so I generally don't pay to go to the movies anymore. I know where you are coming from though.

On the bright side they'll probably squeeze the whole Freeza sago into less than 2 hours so five minutes will be 6 minutes instead of a dozens of episode about "5 minutes".

Fired!

WTF am I getting fired for?

Dragon Ball Z (the original series) is awesome. I don't know about it now since it has been years since I have watched it but Chi Chi was always my favorite. :D

If they make the fight scenes like in Kung Fu Hustle, it could be a very entertaining movie. :P

as the villain Piccolo in Dragon Ball Z.

This makes me think this is the beginning of a series of movies if they are starting way back when Piccolo was the main villain.
