Don't get me wrong, I'm all for movie-production blogging; what could be better than getting the information from the horse's mouth? That is unless they spend most of the time rambling about everything else. Unfortunately this is the case with Emmy Rossum's contribution to her MySpace page with news from the Dragonball set in Mexico. If you're looking for details, I wouldn't get too excited. There are a few hints, but for the most part the info you are going to get is that Rossum's character rides a motorcycle, and will have a lot of 'interaction' with Joon Park in the film, whatever that could mean.

Dragonball is based on the classic manga, Dragonball Z. Ben Ramsey's adaptation centers on "A young boy named Goku who seeks out upon his grandfather's dying request to find the great Master Roshi and gather all seven Dragon Balls (of which he has one) in order to prevent Piccolo from succeeding in his desire to use the Dragon Balls to take over the world". Rossum stars as Bulma, and is joined by Chow Yun Fat (Rossum's unlucky passenger on the motorcycle), James Marsters, Joon Park, and the hotly-debated Justin Chatwin as Goku.

The cast has been pretty chatty since the film started shooting in Mexico back in November. Just last week, Marsters, who plays Piccolo, gave a little pep-talk on the Dragonball blog about the film. Mainly it it was praise for director James Wong, which appears to be the opposite of most popular public opinion. Dragonball is still filming on location and is set to hit theaters on August 15th, 2009.
