James Cameron looks to Brazil for “Avatar” inspiration


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: James Cameron continues to craft the sequel to his staggeringly successful “Avatar,” and reveals where he and his collaborators are looking for inspiration.

“‘Avatar’ is a film about the rain forest and its indigenous people. Before I start to shoot the two films I want to bring my actors [to Brazil], so I can better tell this story,” Cameron told AFP.

He went on to explain that he’s contemplating bringing his “Avatar” sequel cast to Brazil’s Amazonian rain forest so that they can be inspired by the region’s indigenous tribes.

“Actors could learn about the natives and what real life in the jungle is like,” Cameron said, while speaking at the second International Forum on Sustainability. Organized by Brazilian company SEMINARS and promoted by LIDE, the seminar also features presentations by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Clinton.
