Match made in 3-D heaven: James Cameron and Cirque du Soleil

Match made in 3-D heaven: James Cameron and Cirque du Soleil

In hindsight, this story seems inevitable. Epic director James Cameron will be teaming up with the equally epic Cirque du Soleil in a family-oriented 3-D feature film. Cirque in 3-D! It’s so obvious. Mike Fleming of Deadline reports that the film will combine narrative storytelling with Cirque’s signature brand of insane physical wizardry. Scenes featuring Cirque performances are currently being shot in Las Vegas, where the troupe has several ongoing shows. Those performances will feature as the backdrop to a magical world the main character will enter. Cirque is apparently providing the financing, with Cameron on board as producer. This feels like a match made in visually spectacular heaven. It’s as if Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt decided to get together and make a baby…only the baby wears spandex and flies off the screen. Careful, Shiloh.
