When last we left the complicated development of an Avatar theme park at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, James Cameron wasn’t happy. Rumors circulated that he and the Imagineers weren’t seeing eye to eye and, as a result, the park might be delayed. Bad news for fans of Cameron, Pandora and Disney.
Now onto the good news. New rumors have begun circulating that Cameron has finally signed off on Disney’s plans and things are once again full steam ahead. So what’s in the plans? A pair of blueprints for the park’s layout have leaked that reveal two possible rides: a 3D simulator and some kind of water ride. Check out the images below. Read More »
As if James Cameron didn’t have enough on his plate, he’s just secured the rights to another possible post-Avatar project. The director has bought the rights to Taylor Stevens‘ The Informationist, the first in a series of novels centered on a Lisbeth Salander/Sherlock Holmes type woman named Vanessa Munroe who deals in high-priced information across the globe.
Cameron is hoping to producer and direct the film at 20th Century Fox, but it won’t happen until he’s completed Avatar 2 and 3 so no need to rush out and pick up this book just yet. Read much more, including quotes from Cameron and producer Jon Landau, after the jump. Read More »

Jack’s decision to let Rose take the plank at the end of Titanic was unquestionably a noble and romantic one. Unlike so many self-sacrificial heroes, however, he doesn’t go out in a blaze of glory. Instead, he huddles in the icy water and slowly freezes to death. His lady love, meanwhile, gets to sprawl out on her perch and gaze at the stars as she waits for help.
This spring’s 3D rerelease of Titanic inspired a fresh wave of grumbling from viewers convinced that Rose might’ve saved Jack, had she only been smart or generous enough to scoot over a few inches and allow Jack to board the life raft with her. Two fans even mapped out a to-scale outline of the plank and posed within it, definitively proving there was more than enough room for both to fit. But writer/director James Cameron says space was never the issue — their combined weight was. And he’s working with MythBusters to prove it.

You can’t make the movies that James Cameron makes and not be a huge movie fan yourself. The director of the two highest grossing films of all time is currently stumping for the Titanic 3D Blu-ray and has been talking all about his Avatar sequels amongst other things. For example, as the first man to tackle the Alien franchise after Ridley Scott, Cameron has some thoughts on Scott’s return to the franchise with Prometheus. Plus, he revealed that long before Jurassic Park was directed by Steven Spielberg, Cameron read the book and attempted to purchase the rights with intent to create a very different vision of the story.
After the jump, read his quotes about both these interesting pieces of trivia. Read More »

We recently learned that the (at this point, purely theoretical) fourth Avatar movie would be a prequel, and that Battle Angel would be a few years off. But what of the two confirmed Avatar sequels? With both films scheduled to enter pre-production in January 2013 and Avatar 2 eyeing a 2015 release, James Cameron says he’s about to burrow into his “top secret writing cave” to finish the two scripts by the end of this year — and that one of his challenges will be avoiding what he calls “the Matrix 2” problem.
After the jump, read Cameron’s comments on what he has planned for the sequels. Plus, find out what Pixar and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol director Brad Bird thinks of Cameron’s plans.

Even when James Cameron doesn’t have a new film in theaters, he’s not far from the headlines. This year saw the 3D re-release of his record-breaking 1997 success Titanic, which pushed the movie’s total gross over two billion dollars.

With Titanic hitting DVD this week, Cameron is out stumping for the movie once again, and he’s being asked about his view of the film that challenged his earnings records earlier this summer: The Avengers. Read More »
