Alita: Battle Angel star Rosa Salazar wants to play Alita until her ‘last breath’
Speaking with Slash Film, Alita: Battle Angel star Rosa Salazar revealed she is up for playing Alita until her “last breath” should the studio develop more Alita projects in the future.
Salazar said that “Thanks to performance capture technology,” she probably could continue playing the cyborg character for the rest of her life.
Salazar told the outlet that she hasn’t heard anything about a sequel to Alita: Battle Angel being in the works, but the actress is encouraging fans to make some noise and let the studio know they want to see more Alita on the big screen (or small) screen.
One way to show support and let Disney, who now owns 20th Century Fox, know that there is interest in seeing more Alita projects is by getting ahold of your own copy on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, or Digital, all available now. Grab your copy of the movie by clicking here!
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.
Alita: Battle Angel also stars Jennifer Connelly (Top Gun: Maverick), Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Green Book), Ed Skrein (Deadpool), and Jackie Earle Haley.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez, the film features a screenplay written by James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis and Rodriguez. Based on the graphic novel series Gunnm by Yukito Kishiro, Alita: Battle Angel is produced by Cameron and Jon Landau.
