Apart from the exploration of the deep sea in his documentary Deepsea Challenge 3D, the adventure of a lifetime in 2014 or even that of the (fictitious) of Pandora in Avatar, James Cameron has wanted to launch out to the conquest of space.
For the director, who is the first human to be descended alone into the Marianas trench, and who had been watching him-even the wreck of the Titanic to prepare for his film, the cap and the explorer is well-deserved. And the space is, not surprisingly, a horizon that he has in the line of sight.
A dream that James Cameron has very nearly realize there is more than fifteen years, with Tom Cruise. He spoke of his desire to get close to the star in an interview given to Empire for 30 years of the magazine.
Tom Cruise always ready
“I have already talked of making a film in the space there was that fifteen years. I had a contract with the Russians in 2000 to go on the International Space Station and to produce a documentary in 3D. And I thought, “Shit, dude, we should just do a movie with Tom”. And then I told him “Tom, you and me, we will sit in the Soyuz (rocket), but it will be necessary that we form engineering” and Tom replied “No problem, I make them” . We had ideas for the story, but they are still conceptual “.
Ambitions that would have marked a milestone in hollywood cinema, but that would require money to be fulfilled.
And James Cameron also
If this space collaboration between the filmmaker and the actor has not taken shape, the duo was nearly find themselves on another adventure : the adaptation of Mountains of madness Lovecraft, dropped by Universal after months of preparation.
Planting his scenery in Antarctica, around a group of explorers who discovered the remains of an alien civilization which has disappeared, the film was to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, with James Cameron producing and Tom Cruise headlining. In spite of this trio in gold, this adaptation has never seen the light of day, in large part because the studio believed that the financial risks were too great, having regard to the artistic ambitions of the director of Hellboy and the Shape of The water.
Between James Cameron, who reveals that he has failed to soar with Tom Cruise, and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission : Impossible – Fallout and Rogue Nation) who said recently that the saga action would sooner or later go into space, we say that the actor superstar will eventually fly off and go down in History.
Would just never end like that
