Before "Avatar," James Cameron was working on a new kind of cinematic heroine with the big-screen adaptation of manga series "Battle Angel Alita," wanting to franchise Yukito Kishiro's graphic novels about a cyborg discovered on a garbage heap. With "Avatar" having spawned four sequels, Cameron decided to entrust his 600-page "Alita" script to Robert Rodriguez.Rodriguez edited down Cameron's "Alita" to a manageable length, suggesting additional photography and dialogue, and moving the action to South America.Rodriguez says he's always believed in Cameron's vision of a CGI cyborg that appears every bit as real as the young women who will see the movie.
