James Cameron has announced his next project... well after the Avatar sequels. Cameron has taken interest in yet another strong female lead in The Informationist (a novel by Taylor Stevens).
The Hollywood Reporter reported “that Cameron and his Lightstorm Entertainment banner have picked up movie rights to the book, with the intent of developing an adaptation as a directing vehicle for Cameron at 20th Century Fox.”
This comes on the heels of Cameron announcing he would only make Avatar movies. It’s not many directors that know their next three pictures let alone what projects they’ll direct for the next ten years. Cameron is such a director, and we’ll always be watching to see what he does next.
So what is The Informationist? Here is Amazon.com’s description of the novel:
Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information—expensive information—working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back.
A Texas oil billionaire has hired her to find his daughter who vanished in Africa four years ago. It’s not her usual line of work, but she can’t resist the challenge. Pulled deep into the mystery of the missing girl, Munroe finds herself back in the lands of her childhood, betrayed, cut off from civilization, and left for dead. If she has any hope of escaping the jungle and the demons that drive her, she must come face-to-face with the past that she’s tried for so long to forget.
