James Cameron buys another 1000 acres in New Zealand

"I fell in love with New Zealand on a visit in 1994, and vowed to live here someday," Cameron said in an earlier statement. "Now that dream is becoming a reality."
'I grew up working on my grandfather's farm in Canada and my wife Suzy's family own a farm in Oklahoma," he added. ''We want to raise our kids with the values we had when we were growing up, close to the land and with a strong work ethic. We hope we will be accepted as good neighbors and good members of the community in South Wairarapa."
Unfortunately for fans of Cameron's "Avatar," the sequel keeps getting pushed back - something that may be due to New Zealand's distracting beauty.
"So we're out on our farm in the Wairarapa and loving it. Unfortunately, it's distracting because it's so beautiful. You want to go fishing and on yachts and all that sort of thing. It's going to take me a while to get these scripts nailed down exactly the way I want them."
