James Cameron Producing "Battle Angel Alita," Robert Rodriguez Directing

Battle Angel Alita is a project that James Cameron has been very passionate about; I’m surprised he isn’t directing it himself. He also strikes me as a filmmaker who collaborates mostly out of necessity, so it should be interesting to see how this unravels.

"Robert and I have been looking for a film to do together for years, so I was pumped when he said he wanted to do ‘Battle Angel,'" Cameron said. "He’s very collaborative and we’re already like two kids building a go-kart, just having fun riffing creatively and technically. This project is near and dear to me, and there’s nobody I trust more than Robert, with his technical virtuosity and rebel style, to take over the directing reins. We’re looking forward to learning a lot from each other while we make a kick-ass epic."
