Despite the fact that the critics were not enthusiastic about the premiere of ‘Alita: Angel of Combat’, the public did decide to give their support to this film that raised around 404 million dollars worldwide for a budget of 175 million In the absence of official confirmation for its sequel, in an interview with Collider, Christoph Waltz was delighted with the possibility of repeating his role as a father figure:
“Of course! But you know, it’s as much as you are,” Waltz said when asked if he would like to participate in the sequel. “I haven’t heard anything and I’m a little disappointed and surprised, because I know he has a lot of followers. I know people liked and loved working on the movie. You know, it was Fox and Fox doesn’t exist anymore. Now it’s Disney. Maybe it doesn’t fit into the Disneyfication, but I have no idea. Maybe they are working on it and I have not been the first person to find out, but in the meantime, we are swimming. “
A film adaptation of the original Yukito Kishiro manga, the film is directed by Robert Rodrgueza based on a script co-written with James Cameron and Laeta Kalogrindis.
