Titanic director James Cameron predicts Leona Lewis' soundtrack for his new blockbuster, Avatar, could be as big as Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On' - if only she will release it
Titanic director James Cameron has predicted the soundtrack for his next blockbuster, Avatar, could be as big as Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On' - if only he can persuade its singer, Leona Lewis, to release it.
Leona's track, 'I See You', has already been selected as the official soundtrack for Cameron's sci-fi movie, in cinemas next week, but the uber-director is said to be having trouble persuading the star to enter it into the charts.
Despite the song's potential to emulate the success of Celine's ballad, which was no.1 all over the world and remains one of the best-selling singles of all time, she is said to be reluctant to release a single so soon after her last hit, 'Happy.'
A source said: 'Leona was delighted to be part of Avatar but the song was never supposed to be released. But her cover of Run wasn't supposed to be released either - and look how well that did.'
In a bid to sway Leona's opinion, Cameron has reportedly offered the 24-year-old a sneak preview of the £300m movie, the most expensive film ever made.
Having listened to the track, which received input from James Horner, who also worked on Celine's 'My Heart Will Go On', we reckon Leona could have a global hit on her hands. So why not celebrate it?
