Director James Cameron is “in the ‘Avatar’ business.” He’s not going to stop with just one sequel. Cameron visited the Beijing International Film
Festival in mid-April, where they were screening the 3-D version of “Titanic,” which
had recently opened in theaters there. He spoke about what’s coming for the franchise.
He tells the New York Post, “I’ve divided my time over the last 16 years over deep ocean exploration
and film making. I’ve made two movies in 16 years, and I’ve done eight
expeditions. Last year I basically completely disbanded my production
company’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything.
I’m in the ‘Avatar’ business. Period. That’s it. I’m making ‘Avatar 2,’ ‘Avatar 3,’ maybe ‘Avatar 4,’ and I’m not going to produce other
people’s movies for them. I’m not interested in taking scripts.”
He says he’s currently working on software production for the next film. He also says that “Avatar” is all about the state of the world. He adds, “That
all sounds I suppose a little bit restricted, but the point is I think
within the ‘Avatar’ landscape I can say everything I need to say that I
think needs to be said, in terms of the state of the world and what I
think we need to be doing about it.”
What do you think? Should there be another three “Avatar” movies? Let us know below.
