“Avatar” director James Cameron is the target of a $2.5 billion lawsuit courtesy of sci-fi writer Bryant Moore. Moore says that Cameron used two of his screenplays — “Aquatica” and “Descendants: The Pollination” — to create “Avatar.”
Moore is suing Cameron, Cameron’s production company and 20th Century Fox for over $1.5 billion in damages and $1 billion in punitives, according to TMZ. “Avatar” made over $2.78 billion when it was released and is one of the highest-grossing films of all time.
Bryant Moore pointed out several similarities between his screenplays and “Avatar,” including unbreathable atmospheres, blue and green skin, bioluminescent plant life and a battle scene on branches.
