It’s been almost an eternity since we’ve heard anything about James Cameron’s planned adaptation of the manga Battle Angel Alita, but thankfully the director says it’s still on the way. Speaking with Collider, Cameron says that he loves the property too much to give it away to another director and that he still plans to do it…once those two return trips to Pandora are out of the way:
Cameron: Iâ€™m obviously going to be pretty busy for the next five years [with Avatar 2 and 3]. And so I had to consider, do I hand this project off to another director? And then I thought, â€˜No, I love it too much.â€™â€
Cameon also revealed specifics as to what he’ll be including from the books in the movies, and for all of that you can check out Collider’s interview with him right here.
