Rosa Salazar has nabbed the lead in the adaptation of the popular Japanese manga Battle Angel Alita. She will star as the amnesiac female cyborg who is rescued from a scrapyard and put back together without a memory of her past life but, awesomely, with an advanced knowledge of martial arts. Set in the 26th century, the story sees Alita become a bounty hunter, tracking down criminals.
The Fox film, titled Alita: Battle Angel, originally was going to be directed by Cameron, but due to his prodigious Avatar shooting schedule, directorial duties were handed off to the genre filmmaker Rodriguez. Cameron will stay on the project as a producer.
