Spike Lee Has A "Nagasaki Deadline"

Spike Lee Has A "Nagasaki Deadline" Spike Lee is closing a deal to next direct Nagasaki Deadline , a thriller that will shoot on the East Coast next year. Alcon Entertainment will finance, and partners Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson will produce with Lightstorm Entertainment’s James Cameron , Jon Landau and Rae Sanchini. The film focuses on a troubled FBI agent and his desperate race to thwart two terrorist attacks planned to unfold on American soil. The fed goes beyond obvious suspects to focus on theories that the crime is tied to historical events, as he races against the clock. Given the recent Times Square terror scare, this is risky, hot-button stuff.

While he delivered a solid hit on budget with three stars--Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster and Clive Owen--studios hardly flooded him with followup offers. While Lee should be

Though Cameron's Avatar producing partner Jon Landau told MTV that the duo met with Webb, Cameron now tells MTV, "I never talked with them directly" - Cameron added that he's happy to speak with Webb, who will be shooting the new Spidey movie in 3-D, but added, "It's not like I want to tell them how to do it. ... It's more like, just don't make the same dumbass mistakes that we made for 10 years." As for what Cameron would like to see in a new, rebooted Spider-Man? (Remember that Cameron himself once wanted to adapt Spidey to the movies.) "I'd like to seem him reinvented in the same way that Batman got reinvented. ... That's very successful," he said.

James Cameron Talks To Marc Webb About Upcoming Spider-Man Film Following the smash success of “Avatar,” James Cameron is Hollywood’s new guru of greatness.

Now, in a new development that should thrill fans of our friendly neighborhood webslinger, MTV News has learned the name of the latest filmmaker to meet with Cameron: "Spider-Man" director Marc Webb. “Last [week] we met the director of [the next ‘Spider-Man’ film],” Cameron’s producing partner Jon Landau revealed to us when he stopped by the MTV studio, explaining that the “Avatar” filmmaker and Spider-Man’s new gatekeeper compared notes Wednesday evening. “[Webb] wants to do the next one in 3-D, which they’ve announced that they want to do.

Avatar Sequel Gossip Next Film May Venture Off Of Pandora

Avatar Sequel Gossip Next Film May Venture Off Of Pandora Given Avatar’s strong showing at the box office for the past few weekends, and that James Cameron and Fox have invested considerable amounts of blood and money in the film, you can rest assured that we’re going to get a sequel (and most likely a third film to complete the trilogy). The only question now is what those sequels will be about. According to a recent LA Times Hero Complex interview, which occurred on Avatar’s opening night, Cameron is considering exploring the other moons surrounding the gas-giant planet Polyphemus, which Pandora orbits.
