James Cameron on Avatar 2 and Avatar 3
Work is pressing ahead on Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, as James Cameron gives an update on the films...
As you might expect, James Cameron is hard at work putting together the building blocks of his two planned follow-ups to Avatar, which he was apparently intending to start filming later this year. Also as you might expect, he's keeping most of his plans close to his chest at the moment, although in a new interview with PlayGoesStrong, he's chatted a little about just what he's up to.
"I was talking the other day with Peter Jackson", he revealed, "and said 'you had it easy dude. You had the books when you did the second and third Lord Of The Rings. I have to create my own books in my head and extract a script from it'".
Revealing that he's hard at work in New Zealand on the writing of Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, Cameron admitted "I'm deep into it and I'm living in Pandora right now. There is that start up torque where you feel it's coming to you. Then you build up momentum. That's when it gets fun. The characters talk and it's writing itself. I'm almost there right now. It's building fast".
He wasn't able to confirm a release date for either of the new Avatar films, admitting that it will be "determined by when I get the script out". It does sound like those scripts are edging close to completion, though.
