James Cameron Directing Avatar

Yesterday, we learned that Terminator: The Sarah Chronicles creator Josh Friedman was tapped to write the sequel to James Cameron‘s long-gestating sequel to Avatar. This was the first real sign that production was moving forward for the film.

Now comes word that Cameron isn’t only bringing in Friedman, but multiple other screenwriters to work on not one, but three sequels. Avatar 2, Avatar 3, and Avatar 4 will be shot simultaneously starting next year, and Avatar 2 will hit theaters December 2016.

James Cameron Grabs ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ Creator To Write ‘Avatar 2’

Avatar

James Cameron wrote and directed 2009’s Avatar, which would go on to become the biggest box office movie of all time, so you would expect him to also write and direct the long awaited sequel, Avatar 2. But it appears that Cameron will instead have others pen the follow-up, or at least work with him in crafting a draft or two.

According to a source close to Fox, Cameron has brought in Josh Friedman to work on the script for the sequel. Friedman created the Fox TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles—based on the Terminator movie franchise, of which Cameron directed the first two installments — and has also worked on the screenplays for Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds and The Black Dahlia, as well as the teleplay for the Locke & Key series that never came to be.

James Cameron talks about Avatar sequels

Just in case you were wondering, Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 are still in development, or lack thereof. Director James Cameron has promised that the first sequel to the top box office grossing film will take us to the oceans of Pandora. It’s an environment that Cameron is clearly fond of; his deep sea exploration of Mariana’s Trench shows just how passionate the director is.

The underwater setting does have its complications though. Getting the characters to interact with the underwater environment the way he wants to is one of the biggest problems. But film producer Jon Landau believes that he has found a way to overcome that problem. Rather than simulate scenes in the oceans without actually capturing the actor’s experience of them being underwater, Landau confirms that they will use the motion-capture technology in a tank.

James Cameron

Battle Angel fans won’t be happy with what James Cameron could possibly direct after the Avatar sequels. Despite some of the difficulties that he has experienced writing the Avatar sequels, Cameron has just purchased the rights to Taylor StevensThe Informationist. THR was the first to report on Cameron’s latest acquisition, but without actually knowing which direction Cameron is headed towards after the Avatar sequels, it will be hard to know if he will direct Battle Angel first or if he will direct The Informationist first.

Check out a short synopsis of Stevens’ series of novels and a couple of quotes from the press release below.

James Cameron talks about Avatar sequels

It feels like with every update that comes up for Avatar 2 and 3, the status of the project takes two giant steps back. We’ve already heard that Cameron would like to film the Avatar sequels back-to-back, and possibly make the fourth movie a prequel. Now Cameron is giving us a few details as to why the development for the Avatar sequels have been taking so long.

In an interview with The LA Times, Cameron revealed he is taking his time with writing the scripts for the first and second sequel, and that it could be completed before the end of the year. But writing two individual scripts for a films that will have one collective idea is proving to be difficult for the seasoned filmmaker.

Avatar

While Avatar 2 and 3 are currently in development, the fact that there is an Avatar 4 also on the schedule seems to be downright crazy. Earlier, producer Jon Landau cleared some things up by saying there were no plans to shoot a fourth Avatar film. But that could all change, depending on the success of the next two installments. And if they are successful, who’s to say that Avatar 4 would be a direct follow up to the events of Avatar 3?

Well James Cameron spoke to MTV and said that he is exploring some ideas that would make Avatar 4 a prequel.

James Cameron talks about Avatar sequels

Though James Cameron has stated that he will be working on nothing but Avatar sequels, there hasn’t been much development since the announcement was made. Fox had planned to release Avatar 2 in 2014, but producer John Landau stated that in addition to presenting the film using cutting edge 3D technology, they also wanted to shoot the film at 60 frames per second. An average film shoots at 24 FPS and Peter Jackson doubled the rate with The Hobbit films, which were shot at 48 FPS.

Now in an interview with the New York Times, Cameron confirmed that Avatar 2 would not be ready until at 2015 or later. This puts the film’s release a year past the one Fox had projected.

Sigourney Weaver Says James Cameron Plans To Shoot ‘Avatar’ Sequels Back-To-Back

Sigourney Weaver

If and when James Cameron begins filming his Avatar sequels, everyone will be closely watching if he can match or elevate the look and feel of Pandora. Avatar is only the highest grossing film of all time, so it is only fair that the audience get something that’s fresh and improved. Cameron has said that he will stop making non-Avatar films — after he said you would have to pry Battle Angel out of his cold dead hands – and sees himself making an Avatar 4. But if he really intends to make three sequels to Avatar, one can’t even imagine how long the film making process would actually take.

So rather than shoot these three sequels separately, why not shoot them all together at once? At least that’s what Avatar star Sigourney Weaver says will happen.
