The Next James Cameron Film

After the Avatar Sequels

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’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.

Until now. 
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.

I didn't realize mega busty adult actress Taylor Stevens was also an author.

Rob is absolutely right, Cameron is the kind of director we'll always be watching to see what he does next!  I don't care what he calls it or where it comes from, if he directs it I will watch it.

 Blah, blah, blah, sounds like a bunch of crap to me.  But knowing James, he's gonna find a way to get some CGI blue monkeys put into the film.

If Cameron is interested in doing it, then as far as I'm concerned it will be something great. When have any of his movies NOT been something technically innovative and executed in a great style? Whether you think his stories are derivative (meaning a ripoff) or not, he always creates a superior product.

Looking on Amazon, the book gets 4 out of 5 stars from 203 reviews. Obviously, the source material for this movie is well-liked.

The only thing that upsets me is that once againb Battle Angel Alita is being pushed to the side. JC has been talking and speculating about the film for ever. Not long ago he said he wanted to wait because of films similar thematically but damn I think Battle Angel would bveat anything out there

Having said that ditto what monkeyfoot and wish said.
