Alita: Battle Angel is an upcoming American cyberpunk action film, based on Yukito Kishiro's manga 'Gunnm' (aka Battle Angel Alita). Produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau, the film is directed by Robert Rodriguez from a screenplay by Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis. Production and release were repeatedly delayed due to Cameron's work on "Avatar" and its sequels. It is scheduled to be released on February 14, 2019 in Real D 3D, Dolby Cinema and IMAX 3D.

James Cameron has stated that he intends to adapt "the spine story" of Yukito Kishiro's original manga, with a specific focus on the first four books. He especially wants to include the fictional sport "Motorball" from the third and fourth volume.
