DRAGONBALL Film May Be in Trouble

20th Century Fox pushes back release date of Stephen Chow’s manga-inspired film.
Despite Chow Yun Fat’s star power and the solid production team put together for the film, apparently 20th Century Fox fears the competition. Dragonball was originally slated to open August 15, 2008, which would have put it up against Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Wild Child, The International, and Tropic Thunder, which all open that the same weekend. Moving the release date of a film is common in Hollywood, and didn’t come as too much of a surprise, but what was a surprise is how far back the movie was moved: the new expected release date is April 3, 2009!

Dragonball stars Justin Chatwin (War of the Worlds) as Goku, a youthful extraterrestrial warrior who adopts Earth as his home. Emmy Rossum (Poseidon) stars as Bulma, the daughter of a Dragon Ball master whose Dragon Ball—one of seven mystical objects containing incredible power—is stolen by the evil warrior Piccolo, played by James Marsters (“Spike” on Buffy and Angel). Chow Yun Fat will play Master Roshi, a powerful Dragon Ball wizard with a dirty sense of humor who aids Goku for a price. Eriko Tamura (Heroes) and Joon Park (Speed Racer) also join the cast, playing Mai and Yamcha respectively.

Dragonball’s new release date is slated for April 3, 2009.
