Project 880 or Battle Angel?

Well gm and I am back now. I will begin my posts this morning with news of one of my favorate directors....James Cameron. He is back at doing what he does the best: Science Fiction. The Hollywood Reporter brings us this story:

James Cameron (Titanic) will start in December on his next big-budget film, which could either be Battle Angel or a parallel project, tentatively titled Project 880.

The Hollywood Reporter says both films would be shot in 3-D with custom-designed high-definition cameras. Whichever film Cameron does next, he also plans to use a photo-real version of the performance capture technology used by Robert Zemeckis on The Polar Express.

Battle Angel is based on Yukito Kishiro's 12 popular Japanese graphic novels about a nymphette who morphs into an action heroine. Cameron has reworked a script from Alexander screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis that could serve as the beginning of a franchise.

Eager to use the latest technology toolbox on his next film, which will be effects intensive, Cameron has had a team of technicians working behind-the-scenes to build customized solutions that will enable the director to bring his visions to the big screen.

The Hollywood Reporter adds that Cameron will deploy the same side-by-side, 3-D high-definition video Sony cameras that he used on Ghosts of the Abyss on his upcoming feature. Cameron also hopes to release his next film in 1,000 theaters equipped with digital projectors.
