Before James Cameron's long-awaited "Avatar" sequel "The Way of Water" hits theaters this December, it's worth remembering that his directorial debut was a sequel about killer piranhas. "Piranha II: The Spawning" was a notoriously difficult production due to producer Ovidio G. Assonitis' overbearing quest for creative control and Cameron being forced to work with an Italian crew that didn't speak English.
Although Cameron disowned the movie for several years, he eventually acknowledged it as his directorial debut instead of 1984's "The Terminator."
