Steven Spielberg Copying James Cameron With Terra Nova?

Steven Spielberg is definitely coming to Fox.

When the network rolled out its midseason lineup, there was Terra Nova, right at the top of the roster – an action series set in prehistoric times, following a family that ventures back in time to save all of humanity

It all sounds well and good – ensuring that Spielberg will be able to break out the dinosaurs on a planetary scale, even as the tension is ratcheted up with the involvement of “24” writers Brannon Braga and David Fury. But yesterday, even as the THR reported the involvement of a designer who worked on Avatar, the network released this concept art (above), which, yes, looks an awful lot like Avatar.

Maybe that’s just a testament to how well James Cameron visualized an entire fictional world. Or maybe it’s proof that the Avatar influence is going to be with us for years to come – in ways that we fully haven’t comprehended. Either way, it sort of looks like we’ve done this before.
