Having produced and directed the two highest-grossing films of all time, you figure James Cameron has enough money to burn just to keep his other money warm. Most recently he became the first man to take a solo journey to the bottom of the ocean on a whim, just chilling with shrimp-like amphipods, changed his whole perspective on shit. So what’s next for the man? Taking his yacht into international waters and hunting high-priced prostitutes with a crossbow? Making a sheath for his pimp cane out of endangered whale penis? He doesn’t share all of his plans, but it’s clear they don’t include making movies. At least, not movies without “Avatar” in the title.
“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’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything. 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 said about his future plans. “And that 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. In fact, I’m doing one right now, which is on this, the Deep Sea Challenge project that we just completed the first expedition. So that’ll be a film that’ll get made this year and come out first quarter of next year.” [NY Times via ThePlaylist]
Jesus, the recycled Dances with Wolves plot was tired halfway through the FIRST Avatar, I can’t imagine how thin it will be after FOUR MOVIES. James Cameron is a genius, and certainly has my vote for Sheriff of Ballsville, but I’d rather watch him have sex with my mother than Avatar 4. And that would be hard to watch, because you know Jimmy C likes it rough. In fact, I’d be shocked if he hadn’t punched at least one prostitute in the mouth, just to see if it gave him a boner. Anyway, if his four Avatar movies don’t work out, there’s always asteroid mining. That’s right, asteroid mining. I love James Cameron. He’s the closest thing the world has to Tony Stark/The Most Interesting Man in the World.
