Subject: RE: James Cameron to take submersible to bottom of Challenger Deep
You'd be surprised how many films in hollywood are started...without ever being finished.
After Titanic made $1 billion and won 11 academy awards, director James Cameron could make any movie he wanted - and this was the one he wanted to make. Set in the year 2040, Avatar follows a paralyzed war veteran named Josh on a mining expedition to the distant planet of Pandora, where, through a computerized psychic link, he inhabits the body of a purple-skinned, 9 foot tall, ammonia-breathing Pandoran.
Kiss of Doom: Cameron wanted to use a cast of ultra-lifelike computer-created actors. Plus, most of the special effects needed to render Pandora would have to be invented. Avatars budget: a staggering $400 million. No studio would fund it, so the movie was scrapped.
