While the 'Avatar' filmmaker serves as a producer, the 'Shrek' director Andrew Adamson is set to step behind the camera.
James Cameron has signed up to transform the spectacular stage shows of Cirque Du Soleil into a big budget 3D movie. The "Avatar" film-maker will produce the project which will bring the Canadian circus troupe to cinemas, while "Shrek" director Andrew Adamson is set to step behind the camera.
The film will reportedly incorporate scenes from a number of Cirque shows and pave the way for a franchise of films. A statement from Cameron reads, "(This will be) an art form beyond the imagination. The images we've been shooting are stunning, and I know Andrew Adamson will weave them into a transporting, dream-like narrative which will mesmerize audiences of all ages around the world."
James Cameron wowed moviegoers with his work on "Avatar" and indirectly set the bar high on any other movies using 3-D treatment.
