James Cameron to write Avatar Novel

While talking to MTV, Landau said the following of the project:

“Jim is going to write a novel himself,” says the producer. “Not a novelization — and there is a distinction. A novelization basically retells the story of the movie. Jim wants to write a novel that is a big, epic story that fills in a lot of things. … [We] won’t have time to do [these stories] in the movie, or maybe in sequels. [So the novel will] give a foundation for the world.”

James Cameron is a jack-of-all-trades and it would be interesting to see if he is a good writer. Definately something to watch out for in the bookstore once it is published.

  1. I hated this movie. I hated every single aspect about this film. I can name dozens and dozens of films that take each and every faction of this film and do them better and earlier, some even earlier this year. For a movie that had been in development for so long and had so much money pumped into it, it’s a wonder why they couldn’t get better effects, better actors, or at the very least a better script. I can sort of see why people might be enjoying this film, but as for me, the only time I will ever watch this again is when the inevitable Rifftrax is released. If anything the film is ripe for the riffing.
