News: Ed Skrein Boards Alita: Battle Angel

As the Ghost In The Shell live action manga adaptation wraps up production, another is about to kick off with some great talent on board the feature. 

After a long wait, the casting for the 2018 release of Alita: Battle Angel is well underway. With Robert Rodriguez taking over directorial duties on the feature film adaptation, the cast is ripe with some excellent character actors. Christoph Waltz and Jackie Earl Haley have already been attached to the feature for quite some time. 

Now, it's breaking that British actor Ed Skrein is taking on the role of Zapan, the series' main villain. 
Skrein recently took over for Jason Statham in the abomination The Transporter Refueled and starred opposite Ryan Reynolds as Ajax in Deadpool. 

With James Cameron attached as a producer on the film and Rodriguez helming the picture, this might turn out pretty cool.
