James Cameron to Only Direct "Avatar" Films, Kills All Other Projects
Posted by JPX
From worstpreviews, Despite the fact that James Cameron has been wanting to make "Battle Angel" and Arnold Schwarzenegger has been hoping to bring him back for "True Lies 2" and possibly as a producer on "Terminator 5." Cameron has now revealed that he will no longer direct any other movies besides "Avatar" installments. He will also stop producing other people's movies.
"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. So I'm not interested in developing anything," he explained. "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."
Cameron continued: "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."
