Producer Jon Landau Confirms ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Sequel Will Be Made

Despite being immersed in the promotion of Avatar: the sense of waterthe producer Jon Landau You are already thinking of one of those projects that have been preparing for a long time and which, due to various complications, have not even been able to start. We’re talking about what’s next Alita: battle angel, a cassette released in 2019 that adapted the sci-fi manga of the same name. On several occasions, there was talk of a continuation, even if it was not very likely because of the poor reception that this live action box office bucks and the ongoing work involved in bringing to fruition such a titanic project as the return to Pandora. Now the veteran producer spoke to Deadline on the world premiere in London of Avatar: the sense of waterexpressing his wish that we see Alita again in theaters.

Landau was asked if he has any other movies in mind in the future, aside from the new batch of Avatar sequels we’ll be getting in the near future: “Well, there’s a little movie called Alita: battle angel which we would like to return and do a sequel. I spoke to Robert Rodriguez about it and I hope it will come to fruition.” Also, he made a point of amicably reproaching the journalist that if he did not say a date or time, it is because the press and, consequently, the fans, would reproach him for it.

Alita: battle angelwas made by Rosa Salazar. A cyborg trying to uncover the successes of his past in a future civilization divided by corrupt social classes. It was realized by Mexican filmmaker Robert Rodríguez and directed by precisely, the director of Avatar, James Cameron. Caught in the midst of developing the Disney and Fox takeover, the Japanese manga adaptation was surely affected by the convulsive changes that were happening around him, a circumstance that surely seriously affected his promotion. With an approximate budget of $170 million, the film managed to raise 85 million nationally and 319 abroadwhich led to hedging the investment to some degree and it wasn’t a disaster.

Avatar: the sense of water will be released in theaters worldwide next December 16. The expectation around its box office figures is served, since Cameron has already warned that it should be among the five highest-grossing movies of all time be unprofitable.
