Jennifer Connelly will play a villain in James Cameron’s next blockbuster film Alita: Battle Angel.
Set in the 26th Century, dystopian future, the story follows an amnesiac female cyborg (played by Rosa Salazar) who’s rescued from a scrap heap and becomes a bounty hunter tracking down criminals, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The film also stars Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali and Ed Skrein.
Based on a series of popular manga graphic novels, the project has been in the making for more than a decade for Cameron, who will be producing the film. Robert Rodriguez is directing.
The film is currently shooting in Texas and is set for a July 20, 2018 release.
