Cameron pushes through a minor stroke.
We knew it was too good to be true. James Cameron has been wooed away from the 3D epic Cleopatra starring Angelina Jolie. Fox made a "huge" donation to Cameron's environmental fund in order to get him to commit to Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 as his next films.
This will tie him up through 2015 at minimum. Seeing how it takes him three years to put his shoes on, it's unlikely he'll expand the lush digital world he aims to capture. The plan as of right now is to have him start scripting early next year to get Avatar 2 in theaters by December 2014. He'll decide whether he wants to shoot the sequels back-to-back once scripting is complete. So get ready for Avatar to stay in the news cycle for a long time to come. As well as reports of Angelina Jolie kicking drums of oil into Cameron's beloved ocean. (Deadline)
Check out G4's near-fifteen minute clip of Avatar auteur James Cameron talking all about the film, the accompanying video game, and how at this point, he's sort of figured out that "Impossible is Nothing." Of course, ADIDAS has been reminding us of that for years now, but it's a little harder to believe a shoe. I'm really starting to believe that James Cameron is the solution to all the world's problems. You just have to tell him he can't do it. Then he'll figure out a way to do it, but also make it 3-D. I anticipate a 3-D vaccine for AIDs (in THX sound) no later than 2050. In the meantime, bring on Avatar.
