JAMES CAMERON DOING "AVATAR 2,3,4" INSTEAD OF "BATTLE ANGEL ALITA"! "SPARTACUS" GETS NEW FEMALE CAST!ENCHANTING TRAILER FOR "THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN" WITH JOEL EDGERTON & JENNIFER GARNER

Now, you already know that James Cameron is dedicated to the development of the second and third part of his record breaking fantasy tale AVATAR, but now it seems that, when he finishes the two films, which will probably be shot back to back and released in 2014 and 2015 or maybe a year later, he might do AVATAR 4 as well and he is quitting any other production work on other people's films and on his own documentaries until he finishes the saga. It was revealed previously that AVATAR 2 will probably be set close to the oceans of Pandora, and it will be director's third film in more than 16 years! He is currently setting new visual effects pipelines since he wants the sequels to be revolutionary just like the original film was. This all means that Cameron won't do BATTLE ANGEL ALITA after all. For more than a decade he planned to do a sf epic on the female warrior cyborg after he finishes AVATAR 2, but with the new sequels it seems that won't happen.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
After casting blond hunk Todd Lasance to play young Caesar who will
be hunting down the rebels in the third season of SPARTACUS, the producers have now added some much needed female characters, since, as you know, most of the female heroes, including Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) and Illythia (Viva Bianca), died in the second season. According to "Entertainment Weekly" the cast now has three young actresses: New Zealand actress Anna Hutchison, who played a free-spirited temptress in "Cabin in the Woods", will play Laeta, the privileged wife of a Roman dignitary who becomes entangled in the struggle against Spartacus. Australian actress Jenna Lind will play Kore, a loyal slave to Marcus Crassus
 (played by Simon Merrells), the Roman tasked to bring an end to Spartacus and his rebellion. And New Zealand’s Gwendoline Taylor will play Sibyl, a beautiful young slave rescued from Roman cruelty.

And here's an interestingly intriguing trailer for you today: hitting theatres this August THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN
will be  an enchanting, inspiring, and magical story about a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green (Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton), who can't wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. When young Timothy (CJ Adams) shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim, and their small town of Stanleyville, learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life's greatest gifts. The cast of Disney's drama also includes Dianne Wiest, Ron Livingston and rapper Common.

  3. The Odd Life looks absolutely adorable! I got chill bumps watching it for some strange reason...

    Hmmm, I guess Lucy Lawless really isn't coming back to Spartacus huh? I was hoping there would be some strange plot twist or something. *sigh*

    1. it's an unusual film, isn't it?
      Yep, I cannot see SPARTACUS without Lucy and Craig Parker either. The only one remaining is Liam, and he is rather mediocre in his job :(

    2. I'll still watch Spartacus for the um, story..... =P

    3. Yep, there better be lots of loin cloth casually falling down and lots of oiled bums if they want us to keep watching :)

  5. A fourth one as well? Ummm does there really need to be that many? But I suppose he's rich enough to make 10 sequels to it. So power to him, I still haven't even watched the first..lol

    The Odd Life looks like a nice little movie, kids can grow in gardens, who knew? A lot less painful I suppose..LOL

    Tons more for spartacus as well, hopefully it will stay good, not sure though with everybody dead.

    1. I agree cat and I can only imagine that he's gripped by this thing as an artist because it's financially risky to invest in a 4th before he knows what the numbers on this are going to be.

      you know, you didn't miss all that much. Although visually lovely (but nothing overly impressive), the story was deeply mediocre and generic, and it was obvious he stole the ideas from so many different books and films.

      Just don't try to sell us your seeds, cat, we need no such kids growing in our gardens :))))

      I reckon he's afraid to let go of the project given the fact that he already dedicated more than 10 years of his life to it.

      Delete
    4. I'll prob watch it one day, but yeah it sounded mediocre to me, glad to know I was right. And that is why he won't leave it, so much time and money he has to try and milk it for all it's worth now.

      I guess I'll have to go back to my beanstalk seeds than.

    5. and plus it lasts for toooooo long... I think I almost fell asleep at least two times. Which is not that bad given the fact that I fell asleep six times during the first HARRY PLOPPER :)

      Delete
    6. Don't even mention Harry Plopper in my presence. Over rated as a book and not worthy of a movie. I didn't even bother going to the cinema to see it. Rented it and after a few minutes dismissed it and back it went to the store.

    7. @Anne
      Which Harry Potter book are you talking about? Not all the seven are stupid though, some are really good.
      My favorite in book HBP and worst in movie is the same one.

      Delete
    8. I think that the bad young actors are what killed the film for me personally.

      Delete
    9. I liked most of the harry plopper movies, because I never read the books probably..haha

    10. @Pat - Did you say you still need to see the first one? You, who own ten millions DVD's? Say it ain't so! I only liked HP2-5.

    11. I believe the cat doesn't even have a house, but a hut built from DVDs :)

  6. Well, I hope the Avatars are good. Cameron isn't the easiest director to work with. Odd Life? Not sure about it. Kinda odd.

    1. it's worth seeing for the visual beauty, but the story is something you can easily miss and live happily.
      However, it does have a very nice message, which nobody in US understood, since it, in a way, talks about modern US colonialism and worldwide invasions of smaller countries and cultures.

  8. I'm not surprised that Cameron will be preoccupied w/ Avatar, I'm curious to see how he'd bring that world underwater. That guy is obsessed w/ water, ahah.

  9. Not more blue people and flying pigeons. Yuck! Avatar was boring as hell, having stole its entire plot from Fern Gully.

    Odd Life looks pretty interesting.

    1. it's true, the story of AVATAR was mediocre and deeply pathetic in writing, although it did have a nice political message, which, sadly, nobody actually noticed even though the film was out somewhere during US brutal invasion on Iraq.

  10. Dezzy! I didn't know about Lucretia and Illythia yet!!!

    Though, given their evilness, it was only a matter of time...heheheh.

    1. oopsy daisy :) but I didn't say how they will die, and you will be amazed by that, since it's a magnificent scene, truly it is :) It's amazing how the writers of SPARTACUS come up with mindblowing twists.
      Let's just say that Lucretia will finally get her sweet, or bitter sweet, revenge :)

  13. man talk about planning out a legacy of films way ahead of time

  14. I do wish Cameron hadn't scrapped the movie with the female warrior lead. But it's his money and his prerogavite as an artist.

    The Odd Life looks wonderful. A story of hope and of dreams coming true is something we could all use right now.

    1. I'm guessing with all the money he put into his underwater equipment and into his visual effects pipes,he just won't and can't leave the AVATAR project.

    2. He may lose his arse on it though. It's always a good idea to back more than one horse.

    3. water horse in his case :P

  15. I really think they should leave AVATAR behind. Been there done that!!

  16. I was quite impressed with the first Avatar film. It had great special effects but it was the story line itself I was more impressed with. It's going to be hard to top the first one.

    I keep hearing a lot of good things about Spartacus. I can't believe I haven't seen any of it yet! I will have to get caught up on this one!

    Nice reviews! Coming here from Elsie's blog who highly recommended you.

  19. I kind of wonder what will happen if Avatar 2 is a box office flop? Willl the finished Avatar 3 be a direct to DVD release?

    But I did like Avatar so I hope the sequels are successful!

    1. I don't think the flop thing is an option in this case :) That boat will probably never sink. Just like THE HOBBIT could never possibly be a flop.

    THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN sounds interesting.
