Cameron's Schedule until 2017

There has been an incredible amount of talk lately in regards to the Avatar Sequels. In it is almost unfathomable that James Cameron might have another project in mind. Anyone else remember Cameron talking about the anime classic Battle Angel?

In an interview with MovieZine, Landau commented on the possibility of seeing Battle Angel on screen by 2017:
“I am sure you will get to see “Battle Angel.” It is one of my favorite stories, a great story about a young woman’s journey to self-discovery. It is a film that begs the question: “What does it mean to be human? ‘. Are you human if you have a heart, a brain or a soul? I look forward to giving the audience the film.”
Casting is what comes to mind and MovieZine, was quick to get answer for that as well. 
“Who we want to put in the lead role today and who we want to put in the lead role when the time comes, it can be two totally different people who would be right for the role. Now we focus on “Avatar” for the next four or five years. It will hopefully right after that.”
How long can we wait? Well when it comes to James Cameron we can wait forever. 

 

Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.

 At this point, I'll believe it when I see it.

This is what I've been saying all along. Cameron had a trilogy in mind already so I'd like to see that wrapped up but after that Battle Angel needs to get made and I'm happy as hell that Landau pretty much confirms this now.

Cameron has said how much he loves BA which is why he hasn't passed it on to another director and just worked as a producer. He also said there were a few current films thematically similar to BA so he felt allowing some distance between them would help

Cameron should make Battle Angel first!!

At this rate I'll be 55 when this comes out.

 Hell yes. Even though it is a long effing time. Still glad to know he's going to do this.

 Chloe Grace Moretz should play Alita. She should still  be fairly young enough, but I'm sure a new actress will be up and coming by then. She would certainly be perfect right now though!

It's been that long since I saw BA:A I can't remember any of it apart from someone running down cables attached to a floating island. At this rate I'll be to old to care.

 Chloe Grace Moretz will be in her 30's before this movie gets made.

I have given up on it.  I will just have to stick with my Battle Angel anime dvd's for the rest of my life.
