James Cameron is making more movies.

James Cameron is finally making up for lost time with no more than three projects lined up in sucession following a excruciatingly long nine year hiatus after Titanic. Not that he hasn't been working -a couple of underwater docus Ghosts of the Abyss and Aliens of the Deep- but his long-awaited return to the big screen should be met with some big fucking banners proclaiming, "You're the King of the world.", "We'll never let go, Jim.", "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linnen." or a variation on the three. Let's no mince words here: James Cameron is easily one of the most important filmmakers of our time, even if you only appreciate his work on a technical level. He's long been rumoured to have been developing an adaptation of Battle Angel and the eponymous Project 880 (read: Avatar), both of which heavily deal within the realm of science-fiction, perhaps more so than Cameron's previous films.

Today comes the news that after finishing off Project 880, which has now been moved into "first position", and his work on Battle Angel Cameron will be setting his sights on The Dive. Uninspired title aside, this does sound genuinely interesting although decidedly vague; the movie centred more in reality than escapist fantasy dealing with the true story of a pair of divers who try to better their records for diving without oxygen. I'm guessing not everything works out alright. All of Cameron's films deal with a love story in some capacity, normally set against the backdrop of a seething disaster, and they work so well (particularly in The Abyss) because they deal with normal people trying to come to terms with their own feelings whilst attempting to fend off terminators, aliens or Art Malik. I'm altogether delirious that James Cameron will be unleashing a new motion picture next year, and the fact that there's two more after that has me pissing my pants like an over-juiced four year-old.
