    Cool Avatar Sequel(s)

    It official!

    James Cameron has committed to making two sequels to his record-breaking
    3D epic "Avatar" for Fox. The movies are scheduled for release in late 2014 and 2015, which means he won't direct other features for the next three or four years.

    The writer-director had conversations with Columbia about directing "Cleopatra," starring Angelina Jolie, but that possibility is off the table, meaning the studio will have to look for another director.

    But Cameron has two major projects he is producing during the next few years: Guillermo del Toro's "At the Mountains of Madness" for Universal and a remake of "Fantastic Voyage" that Laeta Kalogridis is rewriting for Fox and Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment.

    For the time being, however, he will dive back into writing screenplays for more stories that take place on Pandora. His first film about that invented world and its natives' struggles for survival in the face of greedy Earth capitalists grossed $2.8 billion worldwide after it was released in December.

    "We'll continue to follow the same people on the same planet," producer Jon Landau said Wednesday during Paul Kagan's 3D Media Markets conference in New York. But, he allowed, "We might go underwater."

    The filmmakers plan to shoot the movies back to back with much of the same cast. Asked whether stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana had signed for the sequels, Landau said, "We won't have a problem."

    The ongoing "Avatar" chapters will be the CAA-repped Cameron's ninth and 10th features as a writer-director

    In a statement written with all the humility that comes with being the King of the World, Cameron said:

    "It is a rare and remarkable opportunity when a filmmaker gets to build a fantasy world, and watch it grow, with the resources and partnership of a global media company. Avatar was conceived as an epic work of fantasy — a world that audiences could visit, across all media platforms, and this moment marks the launch of the next phase of that world. With two new films on the drawing boards, my company and I are embarking on an epic journey with our partners at Twentieth Century Fox. Our goal is to meet and exceed the global audience's expectations for the richness of Avatar's visual world and the power of the storytelling....

    In the second and third films, which will be self contained stories that also fulfill a greater story arc, we will not back off the throttle of Avatar's visual and emotional horsepower, and will continue to explore its themes and characters, which touched the hearts of audiences in all cultures around the world. I'm looking forward to returning to Pandora, a world where our imaginations can run wild."

    I am an Avatar fan, and I can wait a few more years before they make another one!

    They are so worth it!

    Imagine how the 3d will look then with all the technology advancing as it does these days?

    Maybe a sequel to Avatar is not a good idea.

    I don't think 3D technology is going to change that much between now and 2014.

    By the time these sequels come out, the first one in 2014, people will be so sick of 3D and 3D movies will no longer be a novelty that the Avatar sequels just won't be so appealing and fresh anymore.

    Avatar Sequals confirmed by Sigourney Weaver...sequels 2, 3 AND 4.

    Source: showbiz411.com

    Sigourney Weaver confirmed tonight that James Cameron is shooting “Avatar” 2, 3, and 4 all at the same time, all with her, and starting this fall...When “Political Animals” finishes shooting, see if you can follow Weaver’s schedule: she goes right into a new Christopher Durang play for a short run at Lincoln Center. Then she films “Avatar” 2, 3, and 4 with James Cameron. That’s right: they’re making three sequels to the blue 3D phenom all at the same time. Weaver says she has no idea how long it will take, or how it’s going to work. “I just show up,” she said. If “Political Animals” is renewed, USA will have to wait until all that’s over.

    I am all for Avatar Sequels.

    I just hope filming 3 of them back to back won't:

    1. reduce the quality of the movies, both story wise and visually - quantity doesn't always mean quality.

    2. make people sick of the Avatar movies due to too much exposure and too short time between sequels.

    I know many people were disinterested in Matrix Revolutions by the time it came out.

    Wake up and smell the coffee, they had clones left over from the Alien Franchise and had no use for them in Prometheus.

    I'm wondering if A4 might turn into extra footage for the other two. Mr. Cameron loves "director's cut" films

    we didn't get a sequel to "dances with wolves" or "titanic" ... useless crap sequels. he should invest into new movies then into making sequels to movies with finished endings.
