Snippet from article:
One of the most commercially successful directors in Hollywood, James Cameron the creator of Titanic is eyeing movie and TV co-productions in China. The director shared his plans at Beijing Film Festival.
Cameron’s movies have been highly successful in China, and he believes it could soon become a similar size market as the United States. Cameron’s Avatar became a box office sensation in 2010, while his Titanic 3D is still the leading Chinese rentals.
The Canadian director plans to strengthen his relationship with China having scheduled a series of meetings with local producers and filmmakers. “I assumed we’d do well here,” Cameron told The Hollywood Reporter.
Fascinated with how the Chinese welcomed 3D technology and how excited they are about his films he told The Hollywood Reporter he plans to discuss Avatar 2 and 3 as Chinese co-productions.
More co-productions equate to more soft power. ;-0
