James Cameron is only going to make blue movies now

James Cameron is only going to make blue movies now

With the Oak now back on the marble back lots, one had probably been crossing the digits in the hope that James Cameron might get back into the Schwarzenegger movie business. You can kiss that dream reunion goodbye by the sounds. In fact, you can rule out Cameron being involved in anything that doesn’t feature a yobbo astronaut humping Smurfs.

The “Terminator” and “Aliens” director – who at one time hinted at the possibility of a “True Lies” sequel ; atop of most our ‘must cancel work’ pics should it ever come off- tells that he’s exclusively in the “Avatar” business now. Meaning? He only wants to make sequels to his special effectsy blockbuster from a couple of years back. Yes, just “Avatar” movies.
Cameron tells The New York Times that, “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, Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4.”

Fuck. No.

Continued the once-beloved filmmaker, “I’m not interested in taking scripts. 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.”

Remember the good day, when Cameron use to make kick-ass blockbuster fare like “Aliens”, “Terminator”, “T2″, “The Abyss” and “”? What the fuck happened? Was it “Titanic”? Did money and gold statues change his way of thinking?

No, you know what I think it is – I think it’s that taste of young snatch he snagged around the same time as her got to make out with Oscar; he’s trying to prove to Suzy that he’s mature now and no longer has to make flicks with muscly guns brandishing big-ass guns. So instead, he’s making sweet aqua-tinted reinterpretations of “Pocahontas” for her… and, whoever is reaping the rewards of the many 3D projection systems that have been forcibly installed in most multiplexes. I guess one might also blame whatever water has been blowing into his snorkel, because clearly this is a man who is downing a different liquid to the rest of us.

Do we really need a bunch of “Avatar” sequels? I don’t think so. I think the guy’s talented could be of much more benefit on something else- yes, even a Schwarzenegger pic. Guys, am I wrong here?
