Alita: Battle Angel Producer Jon Landau: Fans Should Ask Disney for Sequel
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Producer Jon Landau told film news website CinemaBlend in an interview on Monday that fans of the live-action Alita: Battle Angel film should "keep peppering our family now at Disney and [let them know] how important it is to have another Alita movie and hopefully we'll venture there one day." Landau added that James Cameron had "plotted out two additional stories of where we would go very specifically."
20th Century Fox opened the film in early February in the U.K. and in several countries in Asia before its U.S. debut on February 14. The film then opened in Japan on February 22 and ranked at #2 at the box office there. Disney concluded its acquisition of 21st Century Fox and the 20th Century Fox film studio shortly after that in March.
The film has earned over US$400 million worldwide.
The movie starred Rosa Salazar (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Man Seeking Woman) in motion capture as Alita. Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Sin City, Spy Kids) directed the film. James Cameron and his Lightstorm Entertainment partner Jon Landau produced the project, and Shutter Island's Laeta Kalogridis co-wrote the script with Cameron.
