Battle Angel Alita Movie After Avatar 2 & 3

Cameron aims to include Motorball scenes from Manga
[Source: AnimeNewsNetwork] Director James Cameron told the website this past weekend that he still intends to personally direct a film adaptation of Yukito Kishiro's Battle Angel Alita (GUNNM) manga. Because Cameron and 20th Century Fox plan to release two Avatar sequels on December 2014 and December 2015, the director said that he "had to consider, do I hand [Battle Angel] off to another director? And then I thought, 'No, I love it too much.'"

Cameron added that he plans to adapt "the spine story" of the manga with elements from the first four books. Specifically, he intends to include the deadly high-speed competition of Motorball from the third and fourth books, along with elements from the first two books. Cameron has been working on an adaptation of the manga since at least 2003, and he already commissioned a script and a year of design work.
