James Cameron is banking on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey to be a hit. In an interview with The West Austrailian, he says he thinks The Hobbit will do for high-definition filmmaking what Avatar did for 3D. “If there is acceptance of 48 (FPS), then that will pave the way for Avatar (sequels) to take advantage of it,” Cameron said.
Cameron was at the premiere for Jackson’s new movie in New Zealand where he’s working on the scripts for the upcoming second and third Avatar films. The writer director says he wants to have them completed by February and begin shooting the pair at the end of 2013.
