i have this inherent belief that Hollywood can make good adaptations of some of my favorite properties in the game, anime and manga world -- it's just that the wrong people get to the projects first. James Cameron is one of those people who I think can handle these sorts of projects with a level-headedness.
So, I was more than happy to hear that the eternally in-development title Battle Angel Alita has test footage. It has been seen, and is good. Of course, this comes from an "insider source," which can mean just about anything -- possibly that they're far off from base with their quote.
Let's just put on our happy hats for the moment, though, and enjoy the big quote:
”Imagine this for a second. A cyborg chick “the Angel of Death” taking out “a lot” of other part man, part machine type “people”…Now picture the “Angel of Death” looking like a child. a 14 year old. Now imagine this, this little girl goes through these guys like butter. Did you see the KICK-ASS trailer? Well imagine that girl via the Matrix via Ghost in the shell, via AI. “Remember the True Lies bathroom brawl?”
Well take out Arnold, and “copy and paste” Bruce Lee on acid via the Terminator. as seen through the eyes of a sweet innocent 14 year old cyborg girl. And all of this done via the mind of James Cameron, Holy shit what is not to love? The lights flicker and shit hits the fan. Awesome stuff.”
