Alita: Battle Angel has been a dream project for James Cameron for over 15 years, and he even penned a script for the project back in 2004. Cameron is one of the co-writers and producers of the film, which was ultimately developed and made into a project by writer/director Robert Rodriguez.
Based on the graphic novel by Yukito Kishiro, the tale centers on Alita (Rosa Salazar) a cyborg who has no memory of who she is. Thanks to the help of a cyberphysician named Ido (Christoph Waltz), Alita gradually pieces together the puzzle of her life, realizing that she’s much more powerful than she ever imagined.
