James Cameron and Sam Worthington reunite for a NEW sci-fi epic

It's not just enough that they plan to dazzle us all over again with two more Avatar movies in the next few years. James Cameron and Sam Worthington might team up for an entirely new sci-fi blockbuster as well.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Avatar director and star are in talks to come aboard a project called Myth that 20th Century Fox is looking to pick up. Almost nothing else is known about it, except that it's been pitched by a writer named Will Staples, and it's a big action/sci-fi adventure. Although Staples has penned or co-authored several yet-to-be-produced scripts already, his day job is writing video games—in particular, a little series you might have heard of named Call of Duty, which happens to be one of the best-selling games of all time.

Now here's the catch: Cameron is interested in being an executive producer on the project, and not directing, while Worthington is also attached as a producer, not a star, although it's probably reasonable to assume that he would end up appearing in the movie. Also getting in on the action is Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who has his name on this thing as a producer as well.

The project is in the very early stages of development, so all the players involved could change over time. But Staples must have made one hell of a pitch to get Hollywood heavyweights like Cameron, di Bonaventura and Worthington involved even as just producers, don't you think?
