Mar 25, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Maverick director James Cameron, known for churning out some of the most memorable films Hollywood has ever produced, is miffed. However, his anger has got nothing to do with his 3D magnum opus ‘Avatar’ losing out to ‘The Hurt Locker’ at the Oscars this year, the latter a creation of his ex-wife. The director is at loggerheads with Fox News television commentator Glenn Beck known for his penchant for controversy. He threw some verbal explosives at the commentator at the home-video release occasion of ‘Avatar’recently. He said that he would like to talk with the news anchor face to face on issues like politics and environment.
The director lambasted Glenn Beck using some strong words and expletives and said that he dared to call him antichrist. James Cameron remembers what the anchor said about ‘The Lost Tomb of Jesus’, a 2007 documentary made by him. The director said that Glenn Beck is dangerous since he harbors poisonous thoughts. He also lashed out at the detractors of global warming theory. ‘Avatar’ has a theme related to environment as everyone knows. James Cameron is now busy with converting his 1997 blockbuster ‘Titanic’ into 3D. However, he is skeptical of the latest Hollywood trend of making every big budget movie into 3D format.
James Cameron also said that when Glenn Beck had made the anti Christ comments he stared wondering why CNN had recruited him. He added that Fox new is the befitting place for such a person. The news anchor tried to defend himself later by saying that the anti Christ comment was nothing more than a joke.
