For those of you who’ve heard about Avatar director James Cameron’s wishes to make a Battle Angel Alita (aka Gunnm) movie may in for a disappointment. Most likely due to the overwhelming success of Cameron’s recently released film, Avatar, he will be focusing on creating the sequel instead of releasing Alita as he had mentioned in prior interviews. As an Alita fan, it’s very disappointing to hear news like this but Cameron has mentioned that he is still interested in directing a movie version or Yukito Kishiro’s gritty sci-fi manga. You will just have to wait a bit for it to come out. …Though, if he can’t do it, I would be more than happy if someone else would pick it up like Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro.
