James Cameron told German website Spiegel that the upcoming Battleship movie, in which Rihanna will make her movie debut alongside veteran actor Liam Neeson, is “degrading.” He explained: “We have a story crisis. Now they want to make a movie based on the game Battleship. This is pure desperation,” he said of the film, which has an estimated budget of $200,000,000. He continued: “Everyone in Hollywood knows how important it is for a movie, before it hits theaters, to already be a brand. If a brand has been around, Harry Potter for example, or Spider-Man, you are light years ahead. And there lies the problem. Because unfortunately these brands are always ridiculous. Battleship. This degrades the cinema,” he scoffed. The Canadian director also expressed his disdain for life in Hollywood and said he’s planning to move soon.
