MTV is reporting producer Jon Landau has stated that James Cameron is working on a prequel to “Avatar”. That in itself doesn’t surprise me. “Avatar” is the highest grossing film of all time and is certainly not Cameron’s first mega success. Why WOULDN’T he write a prequel?
It’s going to be a…novel. Landau quickly emphasizes that Cameron does not want to write a novelization of a movie. No, they’re talking about an epic story to be conveyed via the written word.
I certainly wish Mr. Cameron all the best in his foray into this new realm. I believe he has the vision (and the resources) to pull off this newest project. And I definitely intend to read it!
But what about you? Do you think James Cameron can make the jump from screenwriter to novelist? Will this novel catch your attention?
