Avatar 2, Avatar 3, and Avatar 4 Announced
Fox Studios (USA) have announced there will be three sequels to the world bestseller Avatar, after director James Cameron found two films "would not be enough". The three sequels will be filmed simultaneously beginning in 2014, and will be released respectively in December 2016, 2017 and 2018.
James Cameron Said
"In writing the new films, I've come to realize that Avatar's world, story and characters have become even richer than I anticipated," Cameron said in a statement. "It became apparent that two films would not be enough to capture everything I wanted to put on screen," he continued.
Avatars 2, 3 and 4 will be filmed in the same New Zealand studios where Peter Jackson made his Hobbit movies, shooting all three simultaneously too.
While Cameron wrote the original film, four screenwriters have been signed up to work with him on the sequels. They are Josh Friedman, who wrote War of the Worlds; Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who wrote Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Shane Salerno who scripted Armageddon.
Nothing is known about the scenarii, excepted the fact that James Cameron is a deep fan of going deep under the sea(s) so we are quite sure (a lot of) extraterrestrial underwater (and terrifying) creatures will be involved...
