The long-running saga of director James Cameron’s adaptation of Yukito Kishiro's Battle Angel Alita manga may be over. Cameron told The New York Times: "Last year I basically disbanded my production company's development arm. So I am not interested in developing anything. I’m in the Avatar business. Period. That’s it. I’m making Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4."
There was a time when Battle Angel Alita appeared to be right around the corner (see "'Battle Angel Alita' Is Just Add Water” or "'Alita: Battle Angel' After 'Avatar 2'"), but now the prospects of seeing a Cameron-helmed adaptation of the saga of a female cyborg who is rescued from the scrap heap and becomes a world class bounty hunter appear to be very dim indeed.
