AVATAR (2009) - lawsuit ahead?

Sadly, the more I see of James Cameron's return to science fiction film making the less interested I am in watching it. From the trailer I can see the broad outline of the story and its looking pretty predictable. Indeed, its looking a lot like some thing I've seen before....namely an Outer Limits episode from 1964 called The Chameleon. As a matter of fact it looks like the same basic story with a love interest wedged in to appeal to the female demographic.

Strange. Cameron has been down this road before and it cost him a lawsuit.

I wonder how long it will be before he or his producers are in court on this one. Or have they already paid off the Outer Limits creators?

Ha! Sic 'em Harlan!
I'm having trouble working up a head of steam for AVATAR as well. Parts of it look spectacular, other parts just look like a spectacular video game.
