Attending Mexico City's TagDF, director James Cameron states that he'll begin production work on his long (LONG) awaited "Battle Angel Alita" adaptation in 2017 which is presumably when he'll be all finished with "Avatar 3." Speaking on "Avatar," Cameron stated that he's moved on from trying to push technology forward with the sequels and that he's instead focusing on the story and characters. Sticking to the festivals theme of technology, Cameron also commented on Hollywood's current infatuation with 3D films. Said the director, "One thing is shooting in 3D and another is to convert to 3D." He acknowledged that the first "Avatar" changed everything but now, the technology and the decision is being taken out of the hands of filmmakers and being placed into the hands of the money-grubbing film studio executives. He also states that films such as "Man of Steel" and "Iron Man 3" didn't need 3D as, "If you spend $150 million on visual effects, the film is already going to [look] spectacular [and] perfect." There's much more in-depth statments and answers from Cameron below in the video.
