James Cameron to direct 3D documentary on Amazon tribe

James Cameron, the director of Avatar, who last year became the most lucrative film in history (making more than 2 billion U.S. dollars at the box office) has announced that he will be shooting a 3D documentary. Cameron will travel to Brazil later this year to shoot an Amazon tribe's attempts to prevent the construction of dams, which are destroying the traditional hunting grounds.

Cameron said that the drama of Xikrin-Kayapo tribe - which has already been storied in a short documentary - said he the tribe reminded him of  Navi, blue-skinned aliens whose planet was used by a mining company in the film blockbuster. "I want to meet leaders of Xikrin-Kayapo tribe, who called me," he said and added that he had met the group during the tour to promote Avatar during his Amazon trip. "I want to make a 3D camera to describe how they live, their culture."
