Casting call for science fiction cyborg movie, “Alita Battle Angel” ( directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by James Cameron)
Would you love to be cast in “Alita Balle Angel?” If you live in Austin you just may have a chance to land a small role.
“Alita Battle Angel” AKA Battle Angel Alita is known in Japan as Gunnm (literally “gun dream”), and is a manga series created by Yukito Kishiro. Seems that the story of “Alita Battle Angel” will be coming to the movies very soon. While the casting notice does not specify the name of the Robert Rodriguez film, IMDB only list one project that it reports to be currently in production. That project is called “Alita: Battle Angel” and is due out in the summer of 2018. The film is described as an action adventure and sci fi romance. IMDB’s description reads as follows… In the twenty-sixth century, a female cyborg is rescued from the scrap heap by a scientist.
“Alita: Battle Angel” is being directed by Robert Rodriguez from a screenplay written by Avatar’s James Cameron. Originally, the film was James Cameron’s project that he had been developing for years, but Cameron decided to give the reigns over to Robert Rodriguez this time but staying on board as the writer and producer. Starring in “Alita Battle Angel” are Rosa Salazar as the star character, Alita, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein and Christoph Waltz. A longer movie synopsis is also listed. According to Variety, 20th Century Fox is behind the film and James Cameron will also be producing alongside Jon Landau.
Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita’s true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death. – IMDB
