So no Aliens 3D?
While in China for the Beijing International Film Festival in mid-April, accomplished director James Cameron spilled his upcoming production plans to The New York Times. “Last year I basically completely disbanded my production company’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything,” he said. “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.”
James, 57, went on to explain his wholesale investment in the Avatar franchise, saying, “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.”
In his free time, he’s going to do more deep-ocean exploration — a personal passion of his. “I don’t find my inspiration in movies. I find my inspiration in life — in the natural world, in daily life,” he added.
