    Yes, as in the manga Battle Angel Alita.
    Yes, as in the Avatar/Titanic James Cameron.

    The film has been in works for many years now, since 2003 about.


    Here's an update from December 15th:

    Enjoyed the first half of the manga, didn't care for second half. But I'm still excited.

    normally I'm a naysayer when it comes to Hollywood adaptions of popular anime and manga (Dragonball left a bad taste in my mouth) but I'm willing to trust James Cameron with this. I can't really see him fucking up.

    He's only covering the first 3 volumes, and if all goes to plan, he'll make a trilogy. It can't possibly be that bad, because the problem with Avatar was the shitty plot, but now he has manga material to work with.

    I can't imagine he could fuck up the basic plot, the action or the visuals.

    The rest I'm not so sure about.

    Yeah Cameron is a big fan of the movie and in many ways Avatar and its sequels will work to both develop the tech he will use and Fund other movies he wants to do

    So I'm down

    I just read about this on wikipedia, and it says Avatar was just a training ground for this movie.

    Well, at least we know the visuals would be good for this movie.

    Heh..the visuals will be mindblowing,and he will finally return to the robots and humanity theme that made him known to the world.

    Can you see the action scenes involving Alita versus a huge opponent and she starts doing the Panzer Kunst with truly superhuman strenght and agility? :datass

    This movie will make shitloads of money..:lmao

    which means we wait another decade:pek

    The graphics will be fantastic
    If he follows the storyline accordingly, then the movie will be good.
    I imagine it'd establish a huge following, like Avatar:LOS

    I heard Alita's going to be CG-animated

    Never read the manga or anything, and I don't even know what it's about, but I'll still watch the movie. Always a sucker for anything based off anime or manga. :(

    Even though I didn't really like Avatar that much, I feel like that he's one of the only few that can give live-action anime movies any justice.

    So apparently James Cameron finally decided to pass on making this. And he handed it off to Robert freaking Rodriguez???? What a huge downgrade! I thought Cameron loved the property? Why the hell would he do this???

    I think this was a deliberate F you to the fans. No one is excited about Avatar. Every time Cameron does a Q and A to build hype for Avatar he gets questions about Battle Angel. I think it pissed him off. And I think this is his revenge.

    :mad
