It seems that James Cameron's smashing box office success has influenced yet another film in the works. MTV Movies Blog recently spoke with 2012 director Roland Emmerich, who revealed that his upcoming Issac Asimov adaptation Foundation will be done in 3D, which was influenced by Avatar's success.
"The Avatar technology applies to Foundation," Emmerich said. "It has to be done all CG because I would not know how to shoot this thing in real."
Emmerich added that the film will use motion-capture technology along with 3D technology.
"Probably now all big movies have to be 3-D," he said. "It's not only the effect of 3-D, [Avatar has] just shown that if you do a movie in 3-D, you can ask for more money and that's the trick. I think now everybody who does bigger movies has to shoot them in 3-D. I think there's no way around it. I was on the set of Avatar and I saw how it worked and I really thought, 'That's the ultimate way of making movies.'"
