of the talk about Jim Cameron’s Avatar, his next budget-blasting project, has been about the creation of an all-CGI alien race. I thought this movie would be all motion capture for sure, but if Freeze Dried Movies is right there will be actual human beings in the film. Actual humans who are from Earth.

According to the site Joel Moore, who was last seen in Art School Confidential and who is in the yet unreleased for most of us Hatchet, will star as a paraplegic war vet who is brought to the planet Pandora, which is the home planet of Na’vi. Apparently other Earth types go with him – this sounds a lot like Aliens meets John Carter of Mars.

The movie, whose budget will probably be enough to fund a cancer cure, is being looked at as a 2008 release.
