Apologies if this is old news to some. This could turn out so horribly bad.

Whoa! Battle Angel Alita (despite it's crappy English title) was great for a long while, but got kinda patchy towards the end. Still, it is one of the better sci-fi mangas with a combination of martial art action, existential philosophy and sentimental tweeness. The rollerball story was probably the best of them all.

It's the only manga I've ever read from the beginning to the end, and I have fond memories of it. I'm not sure Cameron is the right person to direct a film adaptation though.

(x-post)

Yeah, but BAA, thugh seemingly a cyberpunk action comic, is really quite profound and moving, and I'm afraid Cameron'll dumben it down.

Huk, the main character in Battle Angel Alita is a cyborg with a robotic body, so little bikini shots there. Though they might change that in the film.

he's probably more likely than any other possible director in that genre to NOT dumb it down

Yeah, I guess Titanic showed he could combine twee sentimentalism with FX action. Why hasn't he done any more films after that, btw?

i think he went a little crazy during/after titanic!!

From IMdB trivia page:

The main character, even though it's a live action film, will be done with CG animation and will be shot in 3D using the stereo imagining system that James Cameron had been developing for his documentaries.

BWAHAHAHAHA I CACKLE AT FANBOYS.
