James Cameron's Charlotte, NC

As a Charlottean, I was tickled by this description of Charlotte, North Carolina, which can be found in a "scriptment" for Avatar a sci-fi movie by James Cameron, which has yet to be optioned:
Josh lives in the urban sprawl which has grown like kudzu over the whole eastern US.

His particular part of this undifferentiated concrete rat-warren is Charlotte, NC, but you could be anywhere. Its the same crowded, gray, trash-strewn high-tech squalor.The walls are gray, the sky is gray... the people are gray.
Well, hey now, Charlotte ain't that bad. Yet.

This site has stacks of screenplays which you can download and print-out for your own enjoyment, including classic like Bladerunner and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
