Eiza Gonzalez has joined the cast of James Cameron’s “Alita: Battle Angel” opposite Rosa Salazar, Jackie Earle Haley, Ed Skrein, and Christoph Waltz.

Robert Rodriguez is directing and Cameron will produce with Jon Landau through his Lightstorm Entertainment banner. Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis will write the screenplay, based on Yukito Kishiro’s manga series.

The story is set in a 26th-century dystopian future and follows an amnesiac cyborg played by Salazar. After being rescued from a scrap heap by a doctor, she becomes a bounty hunter tracking down criminals.

Cameron and Landau are also currently in pre-production on four “Avatar” sequels. Fox has already set a July 20, 2018, release date for “Alita: Battle Angel,” which is expected to carry a budget between $175 million and $200 million.

Rodriguez and Gonzalez already team on the El Rey Network series “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,” currently in its third season. Gonzalez can next be seen on screen in Edgar Wright’s upcoming action comedy “Baby Drive,” opposite Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, and Ansel Elgort.

Gonzalez is repped by CAA and Management 360.
