Cameron hopes to start shooting the untitled project, which he described as "a big-budget science-fiction film with a pile of special effects" later this year for 20th Century Fox with high-definition 3-D video cameras, the trade paper said.
Cameron announced his plans to sci-fi buffs on Tuesday during a question-and-answer session following a special Hollywood screening of his 1991 blockbuster "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," the paper said.
Fox, a unit of News Corp.'s Fox Entertainment Group Inc., financed "Titanic" with Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures. Although it went way over budget, the 1997 film grossed $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office and won 11 Oscars, including best picture and director.
Since "Titanic," Cameron has directed two documentaries: "Ghosts of the Abyss," a 3-D giant-screen film that took him to Titanic's resting place at the bottom of Atlantic; and the TV special "Expedition: Bismarck," about the famed German battleship.
