AVATAR sequels to hit in 2014 and 2015
Get ready to go back to Pandora in 2014. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that James Cameron (director of the mega-blockbusters AVATAR and TITANIC) revealed at the PGA awards that two sequels to AVATAR are planned to hit theaters by Christmas 2014 and 2015.
Filming and release would follow the practice that the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN used. The sequels would be shot together as one giant production, but the releases would be spaced out by about a year, coming out during the holiday movie seasons in 2014 and 2015. Cameron is currently in the process of writing the next two films, so these dates are very tentative.For more on the sequels, keep reading after the jump.
The sequels will include the entire original cast that survived the first film. " Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form," said Cameron.As the film focuses on a heavy environment message, it is fitting that a percentage of the AVATAR sequels' profits will be contributed towards environmental initiatives.
Cameron stated that he "didn't want to make more AVATAR movies without a grander plan in place."
While it's still very early in the writing process, Sam Worthington had an interesting idea for a sequel: "But there is something [to the notion of being] in a genetically engineered body now, which he is. Is there a 'use by' date on it? I don't know." Other options could include the humans coming back, or other alien forces coming to Pandora.
