James Cameron & Sam Worthington

Ohh I love hearing about more sci-fi! THR is reporting on a new sci-fi project in the works at 20th Century Fox called Myth. The project is developing with actor Sam Worthington and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, G.I. Joe, Salt franchises) producing, and James Cameron executive producing. Sadly, this is where details get thin. "Nothing is known about Myth other than it's big, it's sci-fi, and it's got lots of action." And unfortunately, "Cameron would not direct, and at this stage, Worthington is not attached to star." However, what we do know is that Will Staples is writing a pitch. So it's just barely in the early stages.

We're not sure what this is all about, but they've got some big names on-board. THR hints that screenwriter Will Staples' previous work in video games like Call of Duty might hint at what we could expect. I'd love to see another kinetic action epic sci-fi movie of some sorts, whether it be set in space or on Earth, but as long as it's an original idea with a good story and a strong world behind it. Let's hope that's what they're building, but we'll have to wait for more details. This may or may not have anything to do with another sci-fi project Sam Worthington was attached to last week, a "grounded space war film." We'll let you know what we hear.

    Let me guess... it'll be three hours long, have top notch effects and be completely derivative of some other movie we've already seen.

      Yet be the best rendition of a classic formula used by many other great movies as well? Sounds good to me.

        Nah... I have to disagree. The plot formula was plodding, with no surprise at any point in the proceedings. The effects, on the other hand, were once again groundbreaking. 'Avavtar' was one of the prettiest looking films I've ever seen; the story just bored me to tears. Cameron is capable of making a story that is far more engaging. His two Terminator films are great examples.

      I hope you can re-read your post and spot the irony; if you can't, you're obviously not half as clever as you like to think you are. Have a GREAT day.

      You mad. If you think DavisLister is wrong, then tell him why he is wrong, instead of crying about it like a child. You could easily mount an argument that Cameron's films are great, but instead you take the boring and lazy internet low road, and start weeping about negativity.

    Could it be based on the MYTH VG's?

      You mean Myst? Or Myth? There's probably both, but I definitely don't think this is Myst...

      Myth is classic.. but was not much story or popularity to base a movie on imo. Not to mention it is a rather generic title.

    CG overload is so yawn-inducing. 3D and big effects action scenes don't impress me anymore. How about a decent story and characters for a change?
  • Lamar
     I love James Cameron, but I'm just glad he isn't writing this movie. Avatar was way over-hyped. Great CG but lackluster story. Its like they said "if the visuals are groundbreaking and the 3D is the best they've ever seen, maybe they won't pay attention to the fact this is just Dances with Wolves in Space."

    How about a bit of a break from Worthington? Say, a decade or so? Fuck off back to Perth, Sam. Not every film made here has to have you in it.
