China,Cinema/Showbiz, Sun, 22 Apr 2012 IANS

Beijing, April 22 (IANS) James Cameron' 3D team, behind the worldwide success of 2009 sci-fi blockbuster "Avatar", is being tapped to assist in shooting "The Art of War", a film about ancient Chinese strategist and philosopher Sun Tzu.


The cooperation was revealed Saturday in Beijing by organizers of the 2nd Beijing International Film Festival. The agreement is expected to be signed during Cameron's attendance at the festival, which will be held in the Chinese capital from April 23 to 28, reported Xinhua.


Cameron's team is expected to provide technical support to the 3D shooting. Other details of the deal were not disclosed.


According to previous media reports, "The Art of War", produced by an international team, is estimated to cost between $80 million and $100 million.



Festival attendees also include Keanu Reeves, Korean actor So Ji-sub, and many Chinese celebrities.


Cameron would come to Beijing at a time when his 3D release of the 1997 all-time classic film "Titanic" is en route to set box office records.


The film grossed an unprecedented $67 million in China in six days since its April 10 debut.


Market observers expect the 3D "Titanic" to earn even more during the upcoming May Day holiday to eventually break the $222 million record set by "Avatar".
