Battle Angel Alita Live Action-News Update

Fans of the manga 'Battle Angel Alita' have been waiting for a VERY long time for James Cameron to finally actually get down to making the live action adaptation that's he's held the rights to and has had artists working on in pre-production for almost as long as his best selling film 'Avatar.'

Some recent news suggests that Cameron is indeed still primed to direct the movie, but he'll hve his hands tied with a sequel to 'Avatar' as FOX is eager to make more money that it already knows what to do with...

Still, news has comes from his producer John Landau that 'Battle Angel Alita' is being set to begin after Avatar's sequel, it will feature the Motorball storyline from the manga, and that it will be getting renamed. News has also been revealed that the sequel to 'Avatar' may not be called 'Avatar 2' but perhaps something like 'Na'vi'?

Whatever they'll be called, we're sure to be looking forward to them! Hopefully it won't take another 10 years... But in the meantime, fans of the manga can grab some older volumes as well as the recent 'Last Order' volumes at our store at U.S. Cover Price!
