James Cameron's "Avatar" On Its Way!

by | January 9, 2007 | Comments

We’ve been hearing about "James Cameron‘s next movie" for what seems like twelve years, but according to a recent New York Times story, the "Titanic" director’s "Avatar" is not only the next project on his plate — it’s already in production!

Starring Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, "Avatar" will focus on a paralyzed ex-marine who employs an experimental avatar, one that happens to be a giant alien humanoid creature.

The story sounds intriguing enough, but the revolutionary new technologies used to bring "Avatar" to the screen should prove to be pretty darn amazing. Cameron aims to meld CGI and live-action in previously unseen ways, oh, and the movie will play in 3-D at all standard movie theaters.

Said Mr. Cameron: "This film is a true hybrid — a full live-action shoot, with C.G. characters in C.G. and live environments … Ideally at the end of the of day the audience has no idea which they’re looking at."

Sounds like Mr. Cameron has himself a fantastic new toy to fiddle with for the next few years; "Avatar" is due in theaters in the summer of 2009.
