Director James Cameron has confirmed that his next film will be Battle Angel, a 3-D movie based on the Japanese manga, and starts shooting in December.
But there may also be a parallel project shooting, tentatively titled Project 880, sources at Lightstorm Entertainment told The Hollywood Reporter. Both films would be shot in 3-D with custom-designed high-definition cameras. Cameron also plans to use a photo-real version of the performance capture technology used by Robert Zemeckis on The Polar Express, the trade paper reported.
Battle Angel will be based on Yukito Kishiro’s 12 popular Japanese graphic novels about a nymphette who morphs into an action heroine. As for Project 880, Lightstorm would not reveal a final title or a storyline for that film.
