James Cameron's next two projects: both shot in digital 3-D

Entertainment Weekly writes about two projects that James Cameron has in the works, "Project 880" and "Battle Angel." Degen Pener writes:

    Cameron is no stranger to cutting-edge gadgetry — he's been on the forefront of the CGI revolution since Terminator 2. Now he's using realistic-looking motion-capture techniques like those that made The Lord of the Rings' Gollum so eerily lifelike, and shooting both new movies in brand-spanking-new high-definition 3-D. The catch? If the movies are to be distributed in 3-D format, he hopes to have at least 1,000 theaters converted to digital projection.
