Smile 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.

That is a good idea, like the old days when most actors did reserch into their charaters.

...*bemused* Actors don't research their characters now? I have no idea what movies you've been watching, but large numbers of them actually do research. Up to and including bootcamp and combat training for war/soldier movies/series.

Irayo for posting this news, Miss Tammie! It's great that JC wants to have the Avatar cast experience the rainforest and indigenous tribes of Brazil.

I remember hearing once that he made all the actors playing Colonial Marines in Aliens read Starship Troopers.

I remember watching the extra content with the CE that showed Zoe and Norm walking through The Rainforest in clothes similar to what they wore in the movie to get the feel of how one would move in the jungle, and Jake took a basic course in firearm training. Been awhile since I watched the extra content but that's what I remember.

The man is a genius ... who can argue with success? That is how he can pull incredible performances out of the actors when they are in the middle of a big warehouse ... his field trips to the jungle give them a frame of reference, a mental image to draw on.
