Rumor has it, "Forbidden Planet" could have James Cameron as its director. Both IESB and Latino Review have come out with the news that the man behind the upcoming "Avatar" movie is potentially interested in helming the prequel/remake project.

Other than breaking out that Cameron may direct the project, Latino Review has also brought forth a potential plot details, insisting that the movie will serve as a prequel to the 1956 sci-fi classic and will be a part of a trilogy planned by Straczynski. It is further stated that Straczynski's draft contains the never-before-revealed tale of the Bellerophon.

The original "Forbidden Planet" was a 1956 science fiction film directed by Fred M. Wilcox. It was starred by Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and Leslie Nielsen. It tells the story when a ship called a C-57D Starcruiser comes to planet Altair IV to investigate the disappearance of another ship, the Bellerophon, and her crew.
