Bryan Tyler, who has previously composed the score for such films as Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem, Rambo and Constantine, has signed to write the score for Dragonball. Dragonball Movie Blog broke the news, and later were rewarded with a message from Tyler himself.

Tyler writes:

Dragonball is a dream of mine to score. I have been a fan for as long as I can remember. I am going to do my utmost to reflect the epic tone of the story and capture the amazing richness of the characters. I love how the characters of Dragonball are not simply good or evil. How throughout the mythology of Dragonball they change allegiances (Piccolo) or have something inside them that is dark (Goku with his Oozaru side). It is classic epic story telling and I want the rest of the world (the non-Dragonball fans) to experience what we already know. That Dragonball is one of our great modern mythologies.



Dragonball is produced by Stephen Chow, and stars Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Jamie Chung, Emmy Rossum, Eriko Tamura and Joon Park. Dragonball flies into theatres on August 15, 2008.
