Cameron's samurai?

James Cameron may have another movie on the horizon with his special obsession, aliens.

These are not your average run of the mill aliens. These aliens wield magnificent samurai swords. It would be something along the lines of Akira Kurosawa's classic SEVEN SAMURAI. Word of this new project comes from Production Weekly, "James Cameron is developing a Shane Salerno-scripted sci-fi action script for Fox, described as an "event" film set in the future."

However, io9 with help from THR used their powers of investigation to find out more on this sci-fi "event". The script which was written by Shane Salerno is entitled DOOMSDAY PROTOCAL, here's what was offered as a synopsis: "Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is known to be an epic science fiction adventure in the vein of "The Seven Samurai" involving a group of aliens and humans with various abilities who are brought together to save Earth."

What project will be first? Cameron has BATTLE ANGEL, possible AVATAR sequels, and six other projects in development. So, what do you guys think? You want some more Cameron alien action?

Extra Tidbit: James Cameron apparently wrote a script for SPIDER-MAN, but the studio turned him down. I wonder what that would have been like. Any takers?
