James Cameron's next science fiction film
There's a tiny piece of information just been released online regarding James Cameron's upcoming schedule, and it's another science fiction film from writer Shane Salerno.
Information is sparse on it, and while some are thinking this is a new project for Cameron and Salerno, others believe it could be a film that was announced last year from Salerno, The Doomsday Protocol.
"James Cameron is developing a Shane Salerno-scripted sci-fi action script for Fox, described as an 'event' film set in the future."
That's not much to go on, and it could be a new script or it could be the previously announced Doomsday Protocol. If it was the latter then the story from back in September of last year said that the Shane Salerno written script was:
…a huge science fiction epic in the same vein as The Seven Samurai and a group of aliens and humans with various who are brought together to save Earth...wasn't that The Last Starfighter or Battle Beyond the Stars?
Sounds a great concept, but then there's no indication of which it will be, IMDB list both Doomsday Project and a new untitled collaboration between James Cameron and Shane Salerno. Perhaps someone will have the guts to raise the question with Cameron tomorrow at the Avatar press events and we'll get to hear more, and find out if he intends to direct or not.
