James Cameron to Help Make 3D Cirque du Soleil Movie

In his effort to turn every piece of entertainment into 3D, James Cameron will be producing a new family-oriented feature film that will in some way be connected to those high-flying, freakishly flexible wizards from Cirque du Soleil. The film itself sounds a bit confusing and we’re curious to see what the end result will look like, but based on the description provided by Deadline it appears as if the movie will include a narrative storyline that will be mixed with 3D coverage of different themed Cirque du Soleil performances in Las Vegas.

How they will connect the story to the different performances, we don’t know, but for anyone who’s experienced (and enjoyed) Cirque du Soleil in person (I’ve seen approximately 10 shows myself, and they’ve all been wonderful) should have a fun time with this. You may make fun of Cameron for obsessing over turning everything into 3D, but I commend his creativity and commitment to reach out to other mediums and explore them in the third dimension.
If Avatar taught us anything, it’s that this man knows how to do 3D the right way, and Cirque du Soleil – with its poetic, larger-than-life acrobatic performances – should fit right in with Cameron’s technological advancements. What do you think?
