James Cameron Shooting On Sun’s Surface For ‘Avatar 3′
James Cameron’s latest technological achievement set to break laws of physics and the human body.
Editor’s Note – This was a part of our April Fool’s Day headlines. If you were fooled, don’t be sorry. These are more plausible in the near future than you think.
When announcing ‘Avatar 2′, James Cameron revealed that he is planning to shoot the film underwater with the same motion capture technology he used for the first film. He even revealed that he will shoot at a faster frame rate, something that hasn’t been done before. But what he wanted to keep as a surprise until now was his plans for ‘Avatar 3′ which are out of this world. Literally.
20th Century Fox released a press release where James Cameron revealed that he is building a revolutionary rig built specifically to transport the cast to the surface of the Sun and shoot almost 80 percent of the film there. That’s right, James Cameron revealed that the third and final film in the trilogy will revolve around the group of Na’avi bandits who make Sun their ultimate battleground for a final showdown between the opposing humans and them. And to bring out the realism, James Cameron plans to shoot on the Sun:
“It’s a revolution, I’ll tell you that much. I’m working on a heat-proof portable studio in partnership with NASA that will allow me to take my whole cast and crew along with the motion capture rig to the surface on the Sun and shoot the battle scenes right where the movie is set. The real challenge is convincing the cast to go along with this unparallelled technology, but Sam Worthington is already in.”
Producer Jon Landau says:
“You’ve got to give it to Jim. He’s always been a pioneer in movie technology, but what he’s about to do right now potentially changes inter-galactic travel forever. I mean, if this is a success, U.S. can work on setting up their own colony there and we would be glad to lend our technology to the government.”
This sets ‘Avatar 3′ as the most anticipated movie event in history as audiences are biting their nails to find out if this highly daring experiment will result in a breakthrough or a very painful set of deaths. Only time will tell, but reports already suggest that the crew’s insurance company has chosen to back out of this ridiculous decision.
‘Avatar 3′ is set for Christmas 2015.
