Avatar made over three billion dollars. As much as it pains certain film critics to admit it, that's one damned popular movie. Now, James Cameron and his Avatar star (avastar?) Sam Worthington are in talks to reunite once again. No, not on Avatar 2… well, yes, actually on Avatar 2… but now they're taking a serious look at the mysterious science fiction project Myth, along with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, the high octane producer of the Transformers franchise, Salt and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
What is Myth, you ask? Well, it's a mystery. But with Cameron at the helm you can probably bet that it's not an independent road trip comedy about Sam Worthington finding his birth parents. Actually, Sam Worthington's not even attached to star. And Cameron's not even attached to direct. They just want to produce the thing, and the last time Cameron just produced a movie we got Sanctum, which was a disappointment on many levels. So this may not be the gift from god that Avatar fans are hoping for, even though Hollywood Reporter's exclusive story assures that "it’s big, it’s sci-fi, and it’s got lots of action."
The script will be written by Will Staples, whose previous isn't terribly previous: along with Sean O'Keefe (who is not on board for Myth, apparently) he's co-written the screenplays to upcoming films like Apaches, for Jerry Bruckheimer, and World's Most Wanted for Universal. Staples also contributed to the immensely popular Call of Duty franchise for Activision, and the less-popular Playstation 3 game Lair.
Crave Online will return with more Myth news before Ragnarok hits, we promise you.
