Three-time Oscar winner James Cameron and Machete Kills Director Robert Rodriguez team for anime adaptation Battle Angel Alita


15 October 2015

Whilst James Cameron is hard at work on the continuing adventures for the Na’vi in Pandora, it has been reported that the long-delayed live-action version of the groundbreaking anime Battle Angel Alita is finally a go - with Robert Rodriguez set to Direct.

Cameron will Produce the adaptation of Battle Angel Alita which is the story of a cyborg rescued from a scrap heap with no memories of her past life. Helpfully, Alita does remember her martial arts training - and is naturally put to work as a badass bounty hunter.

Speaking about the collaboration, Cameron said "Robert and I have been looking for a film to do together for years, so I was pumped when he said he wanted to do Battle Angel, he's very collaborative and we're already like two kids building a go-kart, just having fun riffing creatively and technically.

 

This project is near and dear to me, and there's nobody I trust more than Robert, with his technical virtuosity and rebel style, to take over the directing reins.

We're looking forward to learning a lot from each other while we make a kick-ass epic."

Rodriguez describes working with three-time Oscar winner James Cameron as a learning experience adding "Getting to work from Jim's terrific and visionary script while learning the cutting edge techniques he's pioneered is a master class in filmmaking, it's an honour to explore the world of Alita along with Jim and Jon, whose films have impacted me for decades."
