James Cameron's next project is...directing a Black Eyed Peas concert movie??

07.02.2010
UPDATE: According to Chud.com, this has been debunked.

What. The. Shit.

Everyone has been speculating about James Cameron's next project for a while now. What will it be? An AVATAR sequel? BATTLE ANGEL?

Nope, all wrong. It’s a Black Eyed Peas 3D concert movie. Yup. From will.i.am himself:

“Right now we are planning our 3-D tour movie and James Cameron is directing it,” will.i.am tells VIBE. “We have the biggest director because we are the biggest group on the planet. The Peas are filming it in South America. People will be able to see us in the theater with the 3-D glasses and everything."

"There will be a storyline that [Cameron] came up with, which will be dope," the BEP frontman continues. "It’s a full-length film and it's based around our tour activities. We’ve toured from America and Europe, to the Middle East, South America, Asia and Africa. It’s not like we go, 'Yo, we are international, you know what I’m saying? London and Paris!' Nah, that’s just two cities. We want to go across the planet.”

God, listening to will.i.am talk is almost worse than hearing him sing. Biggest group on the planet...

A while back we mentioned in passing that James Cameron was seen filming at a Black Eyed Peas concert, but we didn’t think much of it, but now with this official announcement, we now know why, yet somehow I’m even more perplexed.

Does he just want a vacation from the stress of 10 years of AVATAR development? Is he the world’s biggest Black Eyed Peas fan? Is he secretly deaf and not aware of the music they pump out with some sort of half-working bass/vocals/synthesizer machine?

I mean, I'm sure this won't take too terribly long for Cameron and he's surely working on other projects too, but I just don’t get it. Anyone care to speculate?

Fuck the haters, go watch your shitty heval metal bore ffest. BEP's puts on a fantastic entertaining show.
It think the article is looking way to into this, a movie like this doesn't take a long to direct and all. Look how quickly and easily Martin Scorsesse made that Rollingstones concert movie between his big budget movies!! JC doesnt need to be at all of the shows, or most of them anyways. He just needs to oversee the project and direct where he wants cameras at all times etc. Then he'll

I think JC is doing this for 1. Its fun 2. he can do whatever the fuck he wants 3. its going to help with using the 3D in new ways and obviously making the technology better. 4. probably using newer cameras to test out. etc etc etc. this isn't a big deal And I bet this garners lots of great reviews.

Hmm... Martin Scorsese is a far superior director than James Cameron. And well, you can't compare a goofy corporate sponsored band with over-produced, sloppy beats, and horrendous "song-writing" that really only care about getting their song in the next Pepsi commercial vs. the fucking Rolling Stones. So the comparison is weak. Now I'm not knocking Cameron's talents, I'm knocking the band that he's shooting: The worst band in mainstream media at this point in time.

I'm going to stoop down to a very immature level for this post, but the only way to describe this is the gayest shit I've ever heard in my entire life. Although I don't think even if it were true it could happen. A room overflowing with that much ego and douche-baggery might explode, making delusional fans from all over the world nothing but dust.

James Cameron should direct a 3D Iron Maiden concert movie instead of this hipPop garbage.

gameslave, you obviously aren't quite aware of who Iron Maiden is there buddy. For starters, they've only played some of the largest concerts in history, not to mention they've been doing it strong for about 20 years longer than BEP. Don't even get me started on The Rolling Stones though. Those guys were the biggest thing on the planet long before anyone from BEP was even alive.

Glad this is BS. He might have filmed a concert but a whole movie? That would be like stopping Davinci working on Vitruvian Man to draw a Garfield comic

Good thing it was false alarm. If James Cameron directs a concert movie it should be for a band that's actually worth it, like Tool, for example. BEP sucks a mountain of cocks.

It's a shame this story's been debunked, considering that Cameron's finally perfected the CGI that could give lifelike animation to the face of that botoxed transvestite singer.

You've got to be shitting me. Man, Cameron used to be one of my favorite directors of all time... that was prior to Titanic. Now he'es just getting on my nerves. He could direct a Gears of War movie, the long awaited Battle Angel Alita; heck I would even give him Mass Effect. But nooooo... it's so much better wasting your talent for Black Eyes Peas, or Avatar 2.

The most annoying filmmaker with the most annoying group. Perfect!

Black Eye Peas = The Sound of Stupidity!

Aw fuck!

I HATE the Black Eyed Peas more than any other artist in music today. Words can not describe how awful and STUPID their music is. I seriously considered writing to the U.N. to have the song "My Humps" declared as a crime against humanity. Their lyrics could have been written by a fucking retarded 2 year old. In fact, I blame the Black Eyed Peas for being one of the causes of the dumbing down of our society. In order to enjoy this band you really do have to get retarded. Fuck

Gee I didnt think Fergie was that fat nor are the rest of them that big. Maybe 6 to 12 months of nothing but mcdonalds should make them the biggest band quite litterally if they gain enough weight. Maybe after that I can refer to fergie as fergie the hutt.

I half expected the article to follow that sentence...Meanwhile, back in reality, other bands still exist.

I heard no missed notes at this concert and on top of that they really are singing so moving around on stage = missed notes/not perfect vocals. this was their concert too not an opening act. Will.i.am's freestyle was excellent and he is a dj. I don't have numbers, but I'd say it's possible they're the biggest group in the world.

Funny to see all the haters that think they suck. Oh well to each their own.
