Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman announced today that Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Cameron has agreed to make Avatar 2 and 3 as his next films.

Cameron, who had always viewed “Avatar” as the creation of a new world and mythology, will begin work on the scripts early next year with an eye towards commencing production later in 2011. Cameron will decide if he will shoot the films back-to-back after he completes the scripts, but the release of the first, as yet untitled sequel, is targeted for December 2014, with the third film contemplated for a December 2015 release.

OREN MOVERMAN’s ‘RAMPART’ Update: STEVE BUSCEMI, ANNE HECHE, CYNTHIA NIXON, SIGOURNEY WEAVER, And ROBIN WRIGHT Join Cast – Movie Based On Corrupt LAPD Anti-Gang Program Scandal

Steve Buscemi, Anne Heche, Cynthia Nixon, Sigourney Weaver and Robin Wright have joined Woody Harrelson, Ice Cube and Ben Foster in Oren Moverman’s crime-thriller Rampart.

Set against the backdrop of the scandal within the L.A.P.D. Rampart Division in the late 1990s, the film is the fictional account of a veteran police officer (Harrelson) caught up in the scandal, and his search for redemption. Ice Cube and Foster will also play LAPD officers.

The [Rampart] scandal grew out of severe police misconduct in the late 1990s in the Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (CRASH) anti-gang program including unprovoked shootings, beatings, planting of evidence, framing of suspects, stealing and dealing narcotics, bank robbery, perjury and covering up evidence.

Read more HERE.

The Rampart Scandal is notable in popular culture because at least three Rampart police were found to be on the payroll of hip-hop mogul Marion “Suge” Knight of Death Row Records, a convicted felon with known ties to the Bloods gang. Moreover, detective testimony and a wrongful death lawsuit filed on April 16, 2007, holds Rampart CRASH officers Nino Durden, Rafael Pérez and David Mack responsible for the 1997 drive-by murder of multi platinum-selling hip hop recording artist Notorious B.I.G.

Read more on the Rampart Scandal HERE.

The Rampart Scandal was also the inspiration behind the highly acclaimed F/X television series ‘THE SHIELD’ – what THRALL WORLD easily considers the greatest television series ever. Don’t read about it lest you stumble on spoilers – just watch it from beginning to end. You’ll be trounced with the amazingness.

RIDLEY SCOTT – New ALIEN Prequel Will Be “Really Nasty”

September 5, 2010

'ALIEN' Movie Poster circa 1979

Set 30 years before the 1979 original, so with no room for Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley, the prequels will explore the origins of the deadly aliens.

“The film will be really tough, really nasty,” [RIDLEY SCOTT] notes. “It’s the dark side of the moon. We are talking about gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet?”

Word on the street is that this is a 2-part pair of prequels, both of which Ridley Scott will be involved with.

JAMES CAMERON’s ‘AVATAR’: Trailer Posted, Official Movie Site Goes Live

October 30, 2009

Caught the trailer in the theater before ‘SAW VI’. Cameron’s back is (again) against the wall with the rumored $200-300 million+ budget for the movie. But in his defense he had the same budget issues with TITANIC and then knocked it out of the ballpark with the stunning result.

The bottom line? THRALL WORLD couldn’t help but notice how incredibly REAL the aliens looked in a good portion of the trailer. It really was remarkable and will probably make or break the movies success. No SHREK or HULK cartoons here. They have upped the photo-realistic CGI to an eye-bending level and made THRALL WORLD a believer and we can’t help but wonder how much more of a difference watching it in 3D will make.

But we do hope the “going native” plot (a la DANCES WITH WOLVES, TORAL RECALL, THE LAST SAMURAI) has more behind it than the main character sympathizing with the aliens because an “evil” corporation wants a valuable gem which only seems to exist right underneath the aliens home.

Set to open in conventional 3D theaters and IMAX 3D on December 18th, 2009 and written and directed by James Cameron (TERMINATOR, TITANIC), ‘AVATAR’ stars; Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, and Giovanni Ribisi, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Peter Mensah, Laz Alonso, Wes Studi, Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald.

“The prequel will be a while ago. It’s very difficult to put a year on Alien, but [for example] if Alien was towards the end of this century, then the prequel story will take place thirty years prior.”
