Chow rolls to Fox for ‘Dragonball’
Chow Yun-Fat is the latest to join 20th Century Fox’s live-action adaptation of "Dragonball."
Chow will play Master Roshi. He rounds out a cast that includes Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Emmy Rossum and Jamie Chung. Chow is repped by CAA.
"Dragonball" is shooting in Mexico City and Los Angeles.
The film, directed by James Wong, follows Goku (Chatwin), a warrior alien who protects the Earth from an endless stream of rogues bent on dominating the universe and controlling mystical objects known as Dragon Balls. Stephen Chow is producing.
Master Roshi is Goku’s mentor, helping him achieve the highest state of fighting and spiritual powers.
「Master Roshi = 龜仙人」這個譯法本身就夠噴飯了，又Master 又Roshi（老師）的算甚麼…
不過聽說這個英文譯名已經用太久了太深入民心，就像「Final Fantasy = 太空戰士」 (最終幻想比較好聽Q_Q)一樣，就由他留到現在了。
真是虧他們想到找周潤發來演龜仙人… 周潤發的形象總覺得跟龜仙人不太合就是。不過我倒是很有興趣聽周潤發大喊「かめはめは」 XD。
