One of the many projects that director James Cameron could take on after his visit to Pandora is an adaptation of the manga Battle Angel and the director spoke a bit about the project yesterday. Sci Fi Wire took part in a group interview with Cameron, who was celebrating the Earth Day DVD/Blu-ray release of Avatar, and he talked about why he wants to make the film.
"I just love the character," Cameron said in a group interview. "Maybe it's from having daughters. I have three daughters, and thinking about what it's like, the main character is this little girl that everybody kind of ignores. She's got such a heroic heart on the inside, I've always loved that character."
Producer Jon Landau was also on hand at the event, who said that the film will offer a unique perspective on humanity.
"Battle Angel, I think, is a science fiction movie that begs the question 'What does it mean to be human?'" he told a group of reporters. "It takes place in a future world, a world that has cyborgs, but are you human if you have a mind, if you have a heart, if you have a soul? It's a journey of a young girl who tries to discover herself and what she learns upon that journey."
While it isn't known if this indeed will be Cameron and Landau's next film project, we'll be sure to keep you posted on any further Battle Angel updates as soon as we have more information.
