First released in 2009, Avatar was huge success with actors Sigourney Weaver, Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Michelle Rodriguez. In the new Cameron added Stephen Lang.
The first Avatar epic follows 22nd century humans as they colonize the moon Pandora.
According to the announcement since the beginning, James Cameron has been hard at work on a follow-up which has grown from one sequel to two to three and now four movies, whose release dates have been in flux and delayed with frequency.
In an interview in March with The Star, when it was previously revealed that “Avatar 2” wasn’t getting a 2018 release date, Cameron spoke about making all four sequels at the same time.
He said: “What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So we’re not making Avatar 2. We’re making Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5. It’s an epic undertaking. It’s not unlike building the Three Gorges dam. (Laughs) So I know where I’m going to be for the next eight years of my life,” Cameron told the Star.
“It’s not an unreasonable time frame if you think about it. It took us four-and-a-half years to make one movie and now we’re making four. We’re full tilt boogie right now. This is my day job and pretty soon we’ll be 24-7. We’re pretty well designed on all our creatures and sets. It’s pretty exciting stuff. I wish I could share with the world. But we have to preserve a certain amount of showmanship and we’re going to draw that curtain when the time is right.”
Cameron, of course, will be producing again alongside Jon Landau via Lightstorm Entertainment. Cameron will be directing scripts he co-wrote with Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Shane Salerno and Josh Friedman
