James Cameron Not a Fan of Board-Game Movies

The two biggest trends in Hollywood right now are 3-D tentpoles and board-game movies, and you can guess which one James Cameron doesn't approve of. "We have a story crisis," the Avatar director told Der Spiegel (translated from the German by WorstPreviews). "Now they want to make the Battleship game into a film. This is pure desperation. Everyone in Hollywood knows how important it is that a film is a brand before it hit theaters. If a brand has been around, Harry Potter for example, or Spider-Man, you are light years ahead. And there lies the problem. Because unfortunately these franchises are become more ridiculous. Battleship. This degrades the cinema." Sunk! [Der Spiegel via Movieline]
