Emmy Rossum Plays Some Dragon Ball

Emmy Rossum (“Poseidon,” “The Phantom of the Opera”) has joined the cast of 20th Century Fox’s live-action adaptation of the popular manga “Dragon Ball Z” says The Hollywood Reporter.

James Wong is directing the science fiction action-adventure, which centers on an adult humanoid alien named Goku (Justin Chatwin) who, after discovering he was sent to Earth to destroy the population, tries to fulfill the wish of his dying grandfather and collect all seven of the world’s mystical Dragon Balls to keep them out of the hands of the evil aliens.

Eriko Tamura (TV’s “Heroes”), who plays Mai, and newcomer Joon Park (“Speed Racer”), who plays bad boy Yamcha, are also joining the film which already stars Justin Chatwin, James Marsters and Jamie Chung.
