    Red face James Cameron planning a Battle Angel Alita movie.

    If this has been posted already, I apologize. I did check under the thread search with no results though, so I tried! If this hasn't been posted,I'm kinda surprised!

    On the topic: James Cameron (known for the movie Titanic and the show Dark Angel) is a big fan of anime and is rumored to be making a movie of Battle Angel Alita. I'm not sure if it'll be live action or computerized however. Apparently the question was raised to Jessica Alba about the said movie being she's worked with James Cameron... I HOPE he doesn't plan to use Jessica Alba as Alita/Gally, because her acting I'm not too crazy about and she seems, to me, awfully overrated. Any thoughts on some things this movie should definitely include, who should be Alita/Gally, whether making a movie of it is even a good idea... Any thoughts?

    Well, I liked Alita to some point and until now it is general experience that "western" writers will usually screw up the movie/americanized version of an Anime/Japanese movie. Sometimes is does work out halfway (The Ring <-> Ringu), but G-Saviour for example was a complete fail within the Gundam timeline.

    In other words, there are a lot of things that can go wrong, but I guess we shouldn't judge it before its out yet.

    Very true. I definitely agree with what you say about "western" writers commonly screwing up an anime they've touched- however I'd absolutely love to be surprised for the better!

    Well, there hasn't been a lot of attempts, mainly because most Western writers are probably afraid to tackle the mental aspects of most anime. To say this could end bad would be premature, and I doubt he'd use Alba unless he was sleeping with her. (Sorry, but Cameron is a great film maker, but he tends to sleep with one of his actresses and ruin his marriages.)

    But considering how much more popular anime is now compared to the last few years thanks to Adult Swim and Cartoon Network and other channels taking a chance, theres a very good chance companies are starting to wonder how they can use anime.

    Personally, I think they should use the actual anime style and format to make more adult oriented animated shows. I think Stephen Kings 'Dark Tower' books would make an awesome anime series and would work on both sides of the world. Just my opinion though...

    Default It should be done on the computer
