Avatar so much harder than LOTR, says James Cameron
James Cameron has revealed that he had it tough making 'Avatar' as compared to Sir Peter Jackson with the 'Lord of the Rings'.
The 59-year-old filmmaker, who is planning to direct Avatar 2, said in an interview with Life Goes Strong that he has spoken to Jackson about the challenges of creating a film not based on a novel, Stuff.co.nz reported.
The ‘Terminator’ director said that making the sequels was easy for Jackson because they were based on a book, but for him it is difficult to make the second part of the science fiction film as he has to create his own books in his head and extract a script from it.
He added that he is deep into the second movie and living in Pandora, which is the fictional universe he created for the film.
