James Cameron and Cirque du Soleil to team up for new film
It does not get anymore glitzy and gaudy than this. The biggest director to hit the blockbuster 3D movie scene is teaming with the biggest troupe to ever hit Las Vegas, one that gave a new definition to the term "circus." My retinas hurt just thinking about it.
It has been announced that a new 3D movie is in the works and it will combine the talents of James Cameron (AVATAR and TITANIC), Cirque du Soleil (the over-the-top circus show), Andre Adamson (SHREK), and Reel FX Entertainment. As far as special effects are concerned, it is possible that this will make INCEPTION look like an Ed Wood film.
The announcement included a guarantee that the film will be "an art form beyond the imagination." Cameron and company are looking to make this project a series of films, but only one is officially in development at the moment. The film will feature Cirque du Soleil performers, who have captured the world's attention with their awe inspiring acrobatics and colorful costumes in shows such as the Beatles-themed Love and Mystere.
Cameron will serve as at the producer and Adamson will direct. Cameron commented that “the images we’ve been shooting are stunning, and I know Andrew Adamson will weave them into a transporting, dreamlike narrative which will mesmerize audiences of all ages around the world.”
This could be a sensory overload for people like me. However, visual effect junkies may have found their heroin. I might just park my car in the lot and wait for the spectators on hallucinogens to run out of the theater screaming.
