Last month, a report surfaced claiming producer James Cameron and director Robert Rodriguez were eyeing four actresses for their long-awaited adaptation Alita: Battle Angel. The four candidates were Zendaya Coleman (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Bella Thorne (The Duff), Maika Monroe (Independence Day: Resurgence) and Rosa Salazar (The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials). Today, we have word that the director and producer have decided on their leading lady, with Rosa Salazar reportedly winning the role.
Previously, sources claimed that Zendaya Coleman may be the front runner. But that initial report also revealed the actress may have scheduling complications with her hit Disney Channel TV series, K.C. Undercover. This news hasn't been confirmed by the studio, but our story from last month claimed producers would make their final decision within the next few weeks. And it seems they've finally chosen their leading lady. It isn't clear when production may begin.

If there's one thing Hollywood rarely is, it's fast. Many projects spend years -- decades even -- stuck in development hell. These are projects that take millions of dollars of investment, and no one wants to throw their money down on a gamble. Battle Angel Alita is a manga that director James Cameron has had the rights to for quite some time now. As Cameron has had his mind on Pandora for the better part of a decade, it's a project he hasn't gotten around to. Luckily, he's recruited genre filmmaker Robert Rodriguez to take over directing duties for the film adaptation.
It's been about six months since Rodriguez has signed on, and it's been all quiet on the western front as far as news is concerned, but now THR is reporting that Rodriguez and Cameron are zeroing in on their lead for the flick.

For more than a decade, filmmaker James Cameron has been working to bring Alita: Battle Angel to the big screen. At one point, the sci-fi thriller was set to be his long-awaited follow-up to 1997's Titanic. After several years in development, we reported last year that James Cameron was passing the directorial reins over to Robert Rodriguez, with James Cameron and Jon Landau producing through their Lightstorm Entertainment company. Today we have a new update on this gestating project, which reveals that 20th Century Fox is close to finding its leading lady.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the studio is zeroing in on its finalists for the title role. Actresses who have tested thus far include Zendaya Coleman, who recently landed a leading role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Bella Thorne (The Duff), Maika Monroe (Independence Day: Resurgence) and Rosa Salazar (The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials). Sources claim that Zendaya Coleman »
It’s 6 years since the release of Avatar, and still no sequel. Ryan considers the disappearance of a great mainstream filmmaker.
James Cameron was just 24 years old when he borrowed a small sum of money from a bunch of dentists and made his first film, Xenogenesis. Just 12 minutes long, the 1978 movie was a humble yet significant beginning for the young filmmaker.
The sci-fi short landed Cameron's first job in the film industry: devising practical effects for Roger Corman. Xenogenesis was the first proper collaboration between Cameron and Willliam Wisher, who’d later write the screenplay for Terminator 2. About a battle between man and giant killing machine, Xenogenesis contained numerous elements that Cameron would revisit in his subsequent movies. The giant killer robot looks uncannily like a Hunter Killer from The Terminator. Xenogenesis’s tough heroine bears more than a passing resemblance to one Ellen Ripley, whose fate »
