Well, after over 10 years of James Cameron just talking about it, it really does look like Alita: Battle Angel will hit the big screen as a live-action Hollywood film in 2018 with director  Robert Rodriguez. The story is based on the 1990 manga (and later, an anime) Gunnm by Yukito Kishiro which set in a post-apocalyptic future. The cyborg Gally (Alita) is found by a doctor of cybernetics, Daisuke Ido, in a garbage head. She suffered from amnesia but does remember the Panzer Kunst martial arts technique. She becomes a mercenary hunter-warrior and Motorball player, while trying to put the pieces of her past together.

Here's how Fox describes the adaptation:

Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY) create a groundbreaking new heroine in ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment. Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. Everything is new to Alita, every experience a first. As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she's grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.


Here's the trailer (WARNING: "anime" eyes):
