CastEdit

ProductionEdit

As of 2010, the film adaptation of Battle Angel is currently in pre-production[13] with Cameron. Cameron is said to be a big fan of the manga. The release date for the film is currently set for 2016.[13] Cameron intentionally waited until the technology to make the film was up to where he felt it should be. Originally, when MTV News talked to Cameron about the possibility of adapting the series, the director responded with, "Maybe, maybe."[14] Cameron's film would be a live-action adaption of the first three volumes of the manga series.[15] He plans to complete a trilogy if the first film is successful. In addition, the film would be filmed with the digital 3D system Cameron developed for Avatar. At this time the announced cast consists of Rosa Salazar as Alita, Christoph Waltz, Ed Skrein as Zapan and Jackie Earl Haley.

On February 19, 2010 Avatar producer Jon Landau hinted on the online MTV Splash blogpage that Battle Angel Alita may be filmed after Avatar 2, which is already in development.[16] He also half-jokingly stated that James Cameron may rename the project "Alita: The Battle Angel," because of his tradition in naming his films with either an "A" or a "T."[16]
