And it looks like Christoph Waltz is in talks to play a pretty major role.

A big bit of casting new for you before your holiday weekend: Collider reports that James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez have found their star for their big-budget, live-action movie version of Battle Angel Alita.

And he's still committed to getting around to making that movie, but probably not as soon as you think.
