James Cameron's Next 3D Flick To Be Like A Real-Life Avatar

Cameron taking no risks with plot for next film

James Cameron's Next 3D Flick To Be Like A Real-Life Avatar
 
 

For some reason, James Cameron seems to think that people were actually moved by the story of Avatar. So for his next 3D project, he's focusing on the real-life struggle of an indigenous tribe.

Cameron, who has struck Hollywood gold twice in ways most directors can only dream of - with Titanic and Avatar - has revealed his next ambitious film. He will be going to the Xingu river, which runs right along the Amazon river, to create a documentary about a proposed hydroelectric plant that will likely begin construction soon.

The movie will focus on the local tribal people and how a new power plant would affect their lives.

''I want to return to meet some of the leaders of the Xikrin-Kayapo tribe who invited me. I want to take a 3D camera to film how they live, their culture," said Cameron.

Of course, Avatar's story was something that we've seen time and time again. There was nothing really extremely new or captivating about the story. Even though it was the highest-grossing movie of all time it was not nominated for any sort of acting or writing awards.

This will, however, be a chance for him to show off his 3D skills in a movie that's not lifted up by amazing computer graphics. Avatar's 3D prowess was catapulted because of its stunning CGI world. As a self-appointed 3D spokesperson, Cameron has a lot to prove in any project he takes. Doing live-action 3D is much more difficult than doing anything on the computer or in post production. It will be interesting to see if Cameron can pull it off in a way that will wow audiences.
