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.

James Cameron's 'Avatar' shattered box-office records during its time in theaters and currently sits at the $2.7 billion mark in total worldwide grosses. It's only natural with a film of this magnitude to wonder how the whole idea came about, and now we have anĀ in-depth account of how the man of 'Titanic,' 'Aliens' and 'The Terminator' fame created this modern flick.

It was a debate that had raged since 'Titanic' hit theaters 25 years ago: did Rose leave Jack to die by not letting him up on the board as they floated in the ocean. James Cameron maintains that the board would have only been big enough for one of them and Jack died valiantly, letting Rose live. Others argue that they could have at least tried to fit work it so both of them could have survived. But would it have actually worked? 'Mythbusters' to the rescue!

Will 'Avatar' Sequels Introduce Chinese Na'vi?

by Nick Romano September 20, 2012 @ 9:02 AM
According to 'Avatar' director James Cameron, "China could easily be as big a gross-revenue market for film as North America," which was probably why his company Cameron/Pace Group recently announced a new partnership venture called CPG China. The main goal is to set up camera and 3D production services to Tiajin, the northern city port, but what does this mean for Cameron and his upcoming projects? Well, according to him, it means we could be seeing Chinese Na'vi in 'Avatar 2,' '3' and '4.'

James Cameron Teaming Up With 'Mythbusters' on Jack and Rose's Raft from 'Titanic'

If you were like us, it probably took every ounce of restraint not to scream at the theater screen when Jack sacrificed himself and let Rose have that door-raft all to herself in 'Titanic.' There was totally enough room on that raft for both of them! James Cameron says that's not so, and he's teaming up with the 'Mythbusters' to prove it.

James Cameron Almost Directed 'Jurassic Park'

We know 'Jurassic Park' as something of a modern classic. Directed by Steven Spielberg, it's an almost perfect example of action-suspense blockbuster filmmaking. But it turns out, Steven Spielberg almost didn't direct the film and James Cameron - the man behind 'Avatar' and 'Titanic' - almost did.
