Avatar vs. Interstellar - Head to head in 2009?

is shaping up to be one of the most fascinating years in history regarding epic adventures in space.

I have written about James Cameron's Avatar being planned for Memorial Day 2009 (incidently Michael Biehn has confirmed he has spoken with his friend Cameron and hopes to be cast in the movie after many previous collaborations).

Now, probably one of only a handful of directors that could challenge Cameron and his innovations head-to-head is jumping into the summer blockbuster mix: Steven Spielberg! The L.A. Times reports that Spielberg will direct an outer space effort called Interstellar which apparently hinges on travelling to alternative universes through a wormhole. The release is expected in 2009...

I am dying to get the casting on Interstellar and its budget. Stay tuned to MarketSaw for more details when I get 'em!! My money is still on Cameron. Rumor has it that they are not even using optical cameras for Avatar--seems that infrared cameras are front and center to 'film' the cast's 'Performance Capture' which will then be computer generated in pure grandeur.
