Fox to throw Dragonball in '08. (+BONUS!)

Variety reports that 20th Century Fox has given the greenlight to a live-action film adaptation for the popular anime series DragonBall Z. The series was basically a non-stop fight sequence between humanoid werewolf aliens, green guys, and other random characters. Judging by that description, you might be able to guess I wasn't a fan of the show; however, what intrigues me about this project is that Stephen Chow, star and director of Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer, will produce the film. That's certainly a tip in the right direction.

The movie will be directed by James "Final Destination" Wong, with Justin "How did his character in War of the Worlds survive?" Chatwin set to play the heroic warrior Goku. Whedon-ites should also be glad to know that the movie's villain, Piccolo, will be portrayed by Buffy's James Marsters.

Chatwin certainly has the hair needed for the role. He also has those anime eyes. Kinda. I always thought the show was a perpetual stream of east-imported garbage, so I can't comment on what the role would require on an internal level (if one exists), but he does look the part.

For the sake of the series' rabid fans, Chatwin might want to work on them biceps, though.

We all know Marsters can play the hell out of a villain. I just hope he likes green face paint.
