Avatar cast to seek inspiration from Amazon forest

MUMBAI: James Cameron is considering bringing in the cast of the Avatar sequels to Brazil‘s Amazonian rain forest in order to get in touch and be inspired by the place and its many indigenous tribes.


"Avatar is a film about the rain forest and its indigenous people. Before I start to shoot the two films I want to bring my actors here, so I can better tell this story", the Canadian director is reported to have said.


"Actors could learn about the natives and what real life in the jungle is like", he added.


Cameron is currently attending the second International Forum on Sustainability in Manaus which also features Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Clinton.


On Wednesday Cameron reportedly took Schwarzenegger to the Xingu River, where he had spoken out against the construction of hydroelectric dam in Belo Monte last year. "I introduced him to some of the indigenous leaders whom I met last year," he said.


Earlier, Cameron was baptized with the name of Krapremp-ti, a term used for a "man who is a friend of the jungle" Later the director has been quoted as telling reporters that he would use that name on a character in the Avatar sequel.
