Dragon Ball Z


Recommended Posts

So I thought this live-action attempt was long forgotten, but apparently they are close to starting production. This came out of left field for me, because I haven't heard anything about it until now...I can only assume it'll be a low-budget flick with no-names...I hope otherwise, because it's probably one of the best anime ever to exist and the special effects could potentially be amazing.


Mexican newspaper El Norte reports that 20th Century Fox will film 85% of the Dragon Ball Z movie in Durango, Mexico under the direction of James Wong.


The production, expected to film in 2008, plans to use the Mexiquillo Forest, Marley Ranch, Hacienda la Providencia, La Joya Ranch, Laguna Seca de Santiaguillo and a forum from a Convention Center in the Culture Institute.


"Durango meets the needs in hotels, personnel, services like transportation, equipment, stunts, restaurants. This movie will provide the city with 750 jobs and an important flow of money," said Susana El?segui Cross (Turism & Cinematography Director of Durango).


The sets will be constructed this month and shooting will begin in January and last through March. However, the movie cannot filmed completely in Durango, so they will move to Estado De M?xico for some shots at Nevado de Toluca (an important volcano).


Durango was chosen by Ariel Shaw, the special FX director.


Dragon Ball Z is about a young boy called Goku. He faces Evil Vegueta, who tries to destroy the hero to prove that Goku is not the legendary warrior many believe he is.
