Have you been missing Pandora? Have you been longing to brush up on your Na'vi? Well, it looks like you have another two years to go.
It's been over four years since Avatar
came out, and for most of those years we've known that director James Cameron
is ready to get his thinly veiled metaphor on in an ever-increasing number of sequels. First it was two, then maybe three
. But fans chomping at the bit to see the return of Dances With Blue, Alien Wolves
will have to wait awhile, 'cause stars Zoe Saldana
and Sam Worthington
just now officially signed on to star.
It's almost like he thinks the ground-breaking 3D effects weren't the main reason we were all so obsessed.
The universe of one of the most visually stunning movies in the past few years will now be relegated to our mind's eye: James Cameron-- who hasn't yet finished the screenplay the three Avatar sequels-- is now working with science fiction writer Steven Charles Gould to write four stand-alone novels set in the Avatar universe.
And So It Begins
sequels have been a topic of conversation since the unbelievably successful first installment was released in 2009, and yet we still haven't seen the recognizable blue Na'vi of the series in a single sequel, let alone two or three
. Still, Avatar
will be back, and now Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
creator Josh Friedman
has been hired to help write the screenplay for Avatar 2,
according to a source at The Wrap
has announced that he is officially tired of making all that money and winning all those awards. In an interview with The New York Times
, the big-budget filmmaker said that he might make one more Avatar
movie after the second and third movies he has planned -- and then that's basically it. Because he's really into deep-sea diving these days, and also, he has made more money than any one person should, so it's probably cool to retire now. Well, can we blame him?
has been saying that she's involved in the Avatar
sequels that are currently in production, which is curious because her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, died in the first movie. She added that the movie's creator, one Mr. James Cameron
, says that "no one ever dies in science fiction
." Well now, someone has asked Cameron
about this recently, and he says he's got this one all figured out. And he pretty much said, "no one ever dies in science fiction." But trust him -- he has a plan.
million dollar lady
When Sigourney Weaver
talks, we will definitely listen. Especially when she's talking about the planned Avatar
sequels, but even more especially
when she's talking about the Ghostbusters
sequel. And today, she has some things to say
about both projects, and there is good news and there is vague news. I'll bet you can't guess which project the vague news is about! (Just kidding, it's totally Ghostbusters 3
James Cameron gave an interview to Fox
about the two new Avatar
scripts he's writing and how they are totally not sequels
nor part of a trilogy. But they will be filmed back-to-back and create "hundreds" of jobs since he'll be shooting everything domestically. And you know what? Avatar
made approximately seven gazillion dollars internationally, so this might mean he gets to do whatever he wants, wherever he wants, with the sequels. No sweat, he says. The Terminator
sequel turned out A-OK, didn't it.
