Oscar-winning director James Cameron has said that he wants to make six-hour films for streaming platforms such as Netflix. In an interview Cameron said, “I’m not afraid. I like change. I’m a child of the ’60s. I like it when things are chaotic. I think what we can see is an expanded form of cinema. I want to do a movie that’s six hours long and two-and-a-half hours long at the same time. Same movie.”


Planning to create two versions of his movies, he adds, “You can stream it for six hours, or you can have a condensed, rollercoaster, immersive version of that experience in a movie theatre. Same movie. Just, one’s the novel, and one’s the movie. Why not? Let’s just use these platforms in ways that haven’t been done before.”



The filmmaker is currently working on the sequels to his sci-fi epic Avatar and explained that he has a lot of editing to do before the movies are up to scratch. The director said, “[The] part two is fully in the can. We have a working cut. [The third edition] is still a bit shadowy. I haven’t turned my energy into a disciplined cutting process on that yet. But I know I’ve got the performances.”
