I finally found a publisher for my long time in the work book dedicated to the films of James Cameron, and it's coming out in France in late september.
The publisher is Huginn & Muninn, they are pretty prestigious as they have released tons of books on Alien, Terminator (they have done the french version of Terminator Vault), Star Wars, Bond, everything Marvel, Game Of Thrones etc. They are also issuing the Aliens photobook in september 2016.
The book will be coming in the Fantask collection, which publishes essays, right between Supergods by comic-book writer Grant Morrison, and a book by James Ellroy. Not bad for a start!
We are doing the layout and cover this month, I'll tell you the title once it's set.
It's exclusively about the struggles of filmmaking, a peak at what happens behind the scenes, and how hard it is to make it in the movies and to make films.
I amassed most of the information you will find in it since early 1985 when I first saw The Terminator. It covers everything from Xenogenesis and the Corman days to Avatar, told in a different way.
I avoided paraphrasing anything you can find in the DVDs and making of, so I hope you will find it interesting and fresh. It's not a bio (we have those already) nor a cash-in (we had a couple of those too after Titanic).
I published back in late 2009 a short portrayal of Cameron and his "oeuvre" in the Mad Movies James Cameron Special, which got great reactions: this is the portrayal, expanded to a full lenght book, everything it barely scratched is expanded in-depth.
We have a facebook page for the book, feel free to join and invite your friends to join in! https://www.facebook.com/JCameronBook/
