“… folks think that since Emma Watts and Jim Gianopulos kept Alita: Battle Angel alive for so long at their previous employer, they could pull a rabbit out of their collective hat and bring the project to Paramount.”
“The move reunites Gianopulos with Watts — the two worked together at 20th Century Fox for decades and enjoyed a close collaboration on hit franchises such as “Planet of the Apes” and “Kingsman.” It was Watts’ ability to oversee big, tentpole features that helped earn her the job.”
Emma Watts moving to Paramount Pictures presents a great opportunity for the Alita: Battle Angel franchise to move forward at another studio. See the previous article covering Watts’ departure from 20th Century Studios here.
