Newcomer Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “The Land”) is set to join the cast of the sci-fi epic manga adaptation “Alita: Battle Angel” for 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment.
The story follows a young female cyborg (Rosa Salazar) in the 26th century who is found by a scientist in a junk yard with no memories of her past and goes on to become a bounty hunter.
Christoph Waltz, Ed Skrein, Mahershala Ali and Keean Johnson also star. Lendeborg will play the cunning and sly friend of Johnson’s character.
Robert Rodriguez directs and both James Cameron and Jon Landau produce the film which begins production this month in Austin, Texas.
