James Cameron’s live-action adaptation of Battle Angel Alita has been a film I’ve been looking forward to for years. When I heard that Cameron is planning a sequel to “Avatar”, my only concern was that he film that first. But, it seems the film may already be in pre-production with a release date of 2011.
According to a post on Yahoo movies(can I trust those people?) the film is reportedly already set to be in pre-production.
Thanks to /Film:
“If the Avatar sequel does happen, it’ll be a few years before audiences can lay their 3D-glasses-enhanced eyes on it. Cameron is currently in pre-production on his next movie, Battle Angel in which he’ll use some of the same CG technology he created for Avatar. That film is slated to hit theaters in 2011.”
I usually hate the idea of Hollywood doing live-action adaptations of great anime titles. Whenever I hear of a new one I usually just slam my head on the desk, especially after witnessing that constipation of cinema, called “Dragonball Evolution”. However, James Cameron has shown that he knows how to make a great film. Also, he has shown to be able to make a great film involving cyborgs. He created Terminator for christ sake.
I am happy to hear the he will be using “The Avatar Effect”(as it has been dubbed).
At the moment nothing has been confirmed, but I will keep you updated when its available. I just hope Yahoo isn’t wrong about this.
Are you excited about Battle Angel?
