In 1991, James Cameron unleashed 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day,' his follow-up to 'The Terminator,' in which Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor and her son John teamed up with a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to fight off an advanced machine sent back in time to kill them because they were society's only hope for salvation. The film was a massive success and even won four Academy Awards, including statues for Best Visual Effects and Makeup. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of this action-packed sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
James Cameron's 1994 action comedy film 'True Lies' starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry Trasker, a man leading a double life: at home he is a boring computer salesman to his wife and daughter, but in reality he's an agent for the U.S. government's counter-terrorism task force. With his work distracting him from his home life and his wife flirting with another man, Harry's faced with his most dangerous mission yet. This year marks the film's 20th anniversary, so join us for a look back at the cast of this hit film and see what they're up to now.
James Cameron made movie history when 'Avatar' became the No. 1 box office movie of all time, and if that doesn't warrant a sequel (or, rather, a bunch of sequels), what does? Cameron has already begun work on three more 'Avatar' films -- the first of which to be released in December 2016 -- and, of course, there's been some misleading gossip as to where he'll take us next. To set the record straight a bit, the director let loose a few tantalizing tidbits to whet the palette.
Despite being the highest grossing film of all time, public opinion on James Cameron's 'Avatar' seems to be all over the place. However, there's one thing that everyone can agree on -- Stephen Lang made one helluva villain. His evil Colonel Miles Quaritch may have been one moustache shy of tying women to railroad tracks, but it was a fun, broad performance that made his complete and utter defeat feel like a real triumph.
And he'll be back for the sequels ... somehow.
Yesterday, it was announced that our future stay in Pandora will be longer than expected. Three sequels to the James Cameron blockbuster 'Avatar' are currently being prepared, with the first expected to drop in 2016. But this begs the question: are you still even excited about returning to that world?
Yesterday, we reported the news that James Cameron and 20th Century Fox hired 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' writer Josh Friedman to work on the script for 'Avatar 2,' though the studio had no comment. Today, they've not only confirmed Friedman's involvement, they've announced that writers Shane Salerno ('Savages') and the team of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver ('Rise of the Planet of the Apes') will also be joining the 'Avatar' sequel team. Why so many writers? Because 'Avatar 2,' 'Avatar 3' and 'Avatar 4' will all be filmed simultaneously and that all four writers will assist Cameron in hashing out the three screenplays.
After years of everyone remaining relatively silent on the matter, the first real details of 'Avatar 2' may have finally emerged. A new report suggests that director James Cameron has hired a writer to tackle the screenplay for the sequel to the highest grossing film of all time...and it's someone with a strange connection to Cameron's work already.
James Cameron has certainly been keeping himself busy -- the director, known for crafting some pretty epic films, is hard at work on both 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3,' but he still hasn't forgotten about another passion project: 'Battle Angel Alita,' based on the Japanese comics of the same name. And he's still committed to getting around to making that movie, but probably not as soon as you think.
