James Cameron's "Avatar" is slated to enter principal photography in April this year with Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana starring
Although James Cameron previously stated that his next project of "Avatar" would not come up until summer 2009, it does not mean that he puts the film feature out of his priority at all.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the renowned filmmaker, who has spent a decade to develop the story, is set to get the project into production in April this year. Filming reportedly will take place in and around Los Angeles also in New Zealand with Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana as the leadstars.
The latest creative partnership between Cameron and Fox, "Avatar" centers on a wounded ex-marine who gets caught up in battle for survival when he is sent to settle and exploit a faraway planet. Peter Jackson's Wellington-based production house Weta Digital has already been appointed to handle the visual effects matters.
