James Cameron recently talked with The Hollywood Reporter about what film he wants to do when he is done with 'Avatar'. He Says:

"After 'Avatar,' I want to do something a lot smaller,"


Yes, it may be a smaller type film but he still wants to experiment and do his James Cameron thing. Here are a few highlights from the artile.

On the director's sonar is "The Dive," a true story about the romance between controversial Cuban free diver Francisco "Pipin" Ferreras and Frenchwoman Audrey Mestre. Under his guidance, Mestre became a free diver who broke several world records but died in 2002 while competing. (Free-diving competitors must hold their breath for long periods of time while deep under water.)

"It's a drama, a love story," Cameron said. "This will require underwater photography, which will look gorgeous in 3-D."

When dramatic 3-D is achieved, Cameron believes it could bring about "the kind of uncomfortable feeling that people like in a movie theater; they feel like they are being challenged. It can actually be quite powerful.

"The visual aesthetic of doing dramatic stuff in 3-D is very simple," he said. "Just don't remind people that they are watching a 3-D movie. That will take them out of the experience."


It's love story drama based on his passion for diving and it will be in 3-D! How can the people not know they are watching a 3-D movie? The studio will use that as a main marketing tool for the film, we will be sitting in the theater wearing the glasses, and the movie will be in 3-D. I really can't wait to see Camerons 'Avatar' which doesn't come out until the end of 2009. His new take on using 3-D to make the drama in a movie more powerful and real is an interesting concept. I hope it works out. At this point it seems a bit unnecessary. But, lets wait and see.
