James Cameron Selects Writer To Pen Four AVATAR Novels!

In an interesting turn of events, Cameron has pushed himself back from the actual writing duties for the AVATAR novels in addition to the help he has enlisted for the actual sequels (and prequel?) scripts. It was long held that Cameron was tasking himself with the novels (which I asked him about personally back in 2011), but obviously due to the immense scope of work that needs to get done in a short period of time, he is reaching out for some assistance.

Of course he is closely overlooking all creative aspects of the novels and the movies to be sure. Cameron has hired Steven Charles Gould (JUMPER) who has a solid background in Sci-Fi writing to pen four books. In fact, he is the president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

Says Cameron: "Steven Gould is one of the shining lights in contemporary science fiction, and I've long admired the worlds and characters he’s created in his books and stories. He is already working closely with me and the screenwriters to flesh out the expanding world of AVATAR."

Looking forward to seeing the results of this collaboration for not one, but several books in the AVATAR universe!
