Remember back in May when James Cameron said he’s stepping down from narrative filmmaking, endless Avatar sequels notwithstanding? Well, look who changed his mind!
In an interview with the good folks at IGN, Cameron went back on earlier claims of staying in the “Avatar business”, and announced he’s directing The Informationist. An adaptation of a 2011 book by the same name, the story centers around an information specialist going back to her native Africa to locate a Texas oil tycoon’s daughter. Oh, she also has to come to terms with her past, and other boring cliched plot points.
Look, I’m not calling the man a liar, but James Cameron is totally the Peter Molyneux of the film industry.[via IGN]
