BRIAN TYLER's "DRAGONBALL" Release on CD
One of America's youngest, coolest and hottest names in the film music area, is composer BRIAN TYLER. A never stopping to take a breath-machine that produces kick-ass, adrenaline-pumped modern scores, that do however slightly suffer in terms of originality, some times.
Still, one of his biggest assignments to date is Dragonball Evolution, an upcoming 2009 American live-action film adaptation of the Dragon Ball media franchise being produced by 20th Century Fox. The story centers around the adventures of the lead character, Goku, from his childhood into adulthood. The film began development in 2002, and is directed by James Wong and produced by Stephen Chow. It is scheduled for release on April 8, 2009. Actor Justin Chatwin was cast as Goku, and James Marsters will be portraying Lord Piccolo, the antagonist of the film.
