According to Aaron Water in the Muscovy Times Entertainment section (not available on line), Mr. Cameron has other interests first:
Actually, I’m much more interested in pulling a, you know, a George Lucas and remaking a film or two. I’m really wanting to re-do True Lies, this time from the perspective of Salim’s group.
Basically, something like…we see Salim’s character at home in Palestine, where we see him hit hard by the Israelis, and how he sees all of this, yeah, as US oppression and whatever, and how he legitimately has this beef, right, with America?…And so, the US sends Harry Tasker out to, to basically take him out like we saw, but this time Harry sees what Salim is going through, and Harry…more or less signs on, switches sides, and then takes on the Omega guys…[Art] Malik is not necessarily right for the part, and I don’t think I’m going to get Arnold [Schwarzenegger] at this point [laughs]. But it’d be good to get like a…Taylor Lautner or even Alan Cumming to be Salim…with Chris Pine doing Harry….I’m not sure I could do The Abyss as easily, since we pretty much did that where the Benthic team kind of sides with the aliens against the military already.
No word on whether Cameron would also stick with 3D technology.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
