If you, like us, have been (im)patiently waiting for the eagerly anticipated Battle Angel movie, you will have to wait a bit longer — quite a bit more in fact, as James Cameron made it pretty clear that it'll take at least 5 years before work starts on the highly popular manga Battle Angel Alita adaptation.
We've known for a while that James Cameron's adaptation of cyborg warrior manga Battle Angel Alita is going to take quite some time, and we knew those Avatar sequels had a lot to do with it. Now Cameron's giving us a more concrete reason why Battle Angel's on the back burner, and it's not just about scheduling.
It wasn't even a month ago that we heard James Cameron say he was still stoked to do a big-screen adaptation of the manga Battle Angel Alita as soon as he's done with the Avatar trilogy. But now the blockbuster king's plans for his golden franchise seem to be expanding in a big way. Is Battle Angel doomed?
Ever since we heard over the weekend that James Cameron is super dedicated to the Avatar franchise, we've been wondering what's to become of his long-awaited big-screen adaptation of Battle Angel Alita. Is the project doomed? Cameron himself has just weighed in, and he says no way.
