This short film is a proof of concept. The Alita Fan Project.com‘s goal is to show that a live-action version of the anime Batle Angel Alita is possible and a good idea. Forrest McClain, the writer and creator, has reasons to bring this demo to the wider audience as it thought that James Cameron fancies making the film.
James Cameron. He’ll be caught up making Avatar films for the next few years and it’s hard to imagine what’ll distract him after that. Perhaps if the Ghost In The Shell movie is a success that the studios will greenlight and face track Battle Angel Alita next. If that happens you can say you watched the proof of concept that McClain and director Natasha Kermani put together years before.
