Hi, Bryan Here….
I guess we won’t be getting that sequel to ‘True Lies’ anytime soon, because James Cameron will only be making ‘Avatar’ films. He doesn’t even want to produce any other films. He just wants to make and possibly live in the world of ‘Avatar’. The New York Times did an interview with Cameron over the weekend, and he had confirmed that he was going to make at least three more ‘Avatar’ films.
Cameron said, “…I’ve divided my time over the last 16 years over deep ocean exploration and filmmaking. I’ve made two movies in 16 years, and I’ve done eight expeditions. Last year I basically completely disbanded my production company’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything. I’m in the “Avatar” business. Period. That’s it. I’m making “Avatar 2,” “Avatar 3,” maybe “Avatar 4,” and I’m not going to produce other people’s movies for them. I’m not interested in taking scripts. And that all sounds I suppose a little bit restricted, but the point is I think within the “Avatar” landscape I can say everything I need to say that I think needs to be said, in terms of the state of the world and what I think we need to be doing about it. And doing it in an entertaining way. And anything I can’t say in that area, I want to say through documentaries, which I’m continuing. I’ve done five documentaries in the last 10 years, and I’ll hopefully do a lot more. In fact, I’m doing one right now, which is on this, the Deep Sea Challenge project that we just completed the first expedition. So that’ll be a film that’ll get made this year and come out first quarter of next year.”
Read the full interview HERE, to read who inspires him and what he thinks of film these days. Interesting article. But I do believe that he said all he needed to say with the first ‘Avatar’.
