'Avatar' director will turn his hand to adapting Las Vegas show
James Cameron is planning to convert Las Vegas musical Cirque du Soleil to a 3D movie.
The Avatar director is pairing up with the director of Shrek, Andrew Adamson, to adapt the lauded performance show.
Adamson will write the movie, with it being executive-produced by Cameron, reports Deadline.com.
Cameron said: “The images we’ve been shooting are stunning, and I know Andrew Adamson will weave them into a transporting, dreamlike narrative which will mesmerise audiences of all ages around the world.”
Adamson added: “Cirque du Soleil has always inspired me with their window into the balance between beauty and danger; art and technology; gravity and unbelievable physical ability. Bringing that to the screen in 3D is a perfect synergy between an art form and a medium.”
There’s no word as yet regarding a release date.
