Cameron to Follow Up Avatar With Emoticon

HOLLYWOOD (The Borowitz Report) - Building on the momentum of his latest blockbuster, Avatar, director James Cameron announced his next project, a special-effects-laden extravaganza called Emoticon.

While details of the film's storyline remain sketchy, Mr. Cameron said that the film will take place "in a magical fantasy world populated by smiley and frowny faces."

The Oscar-winning director said that Emoticon would be the first film ever released in 4-D, adding, "The fourth dimension is hype."

Always pushing the frontiers of new technology, Mr. Cameron said that he would not personally direct the film, but would instead create a CGI version of himself to direct it. More here.
