He's conquered the deep sea, aliens and -- with this week's premiere of his sci-fi series "Dark Angel" -- even primetime TV.
So it would be just another action-packed day for mega-director James Cameron ("Titanic," "Aliens") if he were planning a trip to the Russian space station Mir, as the New York Post reported Tuesday.
No need to send a bon voyage card yet, however. According to his representative, the director has simply been researching upcoming projects, including an IMAX film and a TV miniseries about Mars. The research includes trips to NASA and Russian space facilities.
"He's diligently pursuing every aspect of the cosmonaut experience," says Rae Sanchini, president of Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment production company. But no actual launches are planned.
Still, after the upcoming NBC reality show "Destination Mir" sends its winning contestant to the famed space station, who would blame Cameron if he got the space travel bug?
Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to make another "Terminator" movie. But he's got a problem: James Cameron doesn't. Schwarzenegger, longing to return to his glory days as an action icon, recently blurted to the media that he's committed to make "T3" and expressed his hope that the "Titanic" director would return to fertile ground such as the original "Terminator" and especially its sequel, "Terminator 2: Judgment Day."
But, as everyone suspected, Cameron's been there, done that, and doesn't want to do it again.
Rae Sanchini, Cameron's longtime partner, told Daily Variety that 'T3' has been out of the question to Cameron for more than a year. "(Schwarzenegger and Cameron) are fabulous friends … and yes, they love working together, but no, he won't be directing the movie.''
The sequel rights to the sci-fi series are held by C2 Pictures, headed by Mario Kassar and Andy Vajna, former chiefs of the defunct Carolco studio, which produced the first two films.
