Damon was occupied with all the Jason Bourne films and could not adapt to the extensive shooting program of Avatar. The direct character eventually went into Australian celebrity Sam Worthington.
He advised British GQ in a meeting, “And if he provided it to me, he belongs ‘Now, listen to. I don’t require anyone. I don’t require a title for it, a called celebrity. If you do not take this, then I am gonna come across an unknown celebrity and give him it because the film does not need you. But should you choose the role, I will provide you 10 percent of the movie’s profits’.”
The record has been defeated by Avengers: Endgame. A 10% reduction of the movie’s gains would have made Damon $250 million, based on GQ.
He explained, “I advised John Krasinski this narrative when we were composing Promised Land… He goes you’d done that film, nothing on your life could differ. Nothing in your life could differ in any way. Except, right now, we’d be having this dialogue in distance,”’ Damon clarified. I have left more cash on the table than any celebrity.”
Damon stated that what he regrets that the most is being unable to utilize Cameron, with a reputation for working rarely but providing huge strikes. He stated, “I recognized in need to say that I was likely passing on the opportunity to work with him. So that sucked and that is still brutal. However, my children are eating. He also added, “Cameron explained to me personally in the course of this dialogue,’You know, I have just made six films ‘ I didn’t understand that. He works so rarely, but his films, you know all them. So it seems as though he has made more than he’s.”
Lately, actor Govinda reported that not merely was he provided the opportunity to star in Avatar, he had been the person who suggested the movie’s title. “I gave the name of this movie (Avatar). It has become a super hit movie,” Govinda said lately. “I’d advised him (James Cameron) the movie is going to do very well. I advised him that I believe it takes seven years to allow him to finish the movie. He got mad. I advised him what he had been imagining was something nearly impossible. He has named his movie Avatar, but he’s showing aliens”
