Cameron Vows To Do BATTLE ANGEL After AVATAR Sequels


While he was in the process of developing Avatar, director James Cameron was also prepping another project, an adaptation of the manga series Battle Angel Alita. And when he decided to go ahead with production on Avatar, many thought that that was it for Battle Angel and that film would not get made.

But Cameron hasn’t given up on bringing the manga to the big screen and told an audience at Mexico City’s TagDF conference (via the Hollywood Reporter) that he still intends to make the film, but only after he finishes off his two planned Avatar sequels somewhere around 2017.

Battle Angel follows the story of a cyborg with a fragmented memory who goes on to become a crime fighter and extreme sports celebrity. The series was created by Yukito Kishiro, who a few years after its completion went back a rewrote the ending more to his liking. No word as to what version of the ending Cameron is looking at using for his film.
