James Cameron Plans To Begin Production On AVATAR Sequels Next Year
Avatar director James Cameron has offered an update on his planned sequels, saying that he's looking to finish the scripts by February and that filming should kick off by the end of 2013.
Last we heard on James Cameron's planned sequels to his 2009 sci-fi epic Avatar, it was said that the first follow-up would be targeting a 2015 release (after producer Jon Landau ruled out the previously suggested 2014 debut). Cameron has been working on the scripts for the sequels ever since the first film became the highest grossing movie of all time. Now, speaking with The West Australian at the premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey last night, the director reveals that he plans on finishing writing his scripts by February next year, and production would commence at the end of 2013. That would help bring the first sequel on course for a 2015 release. "I want to get these scripts nailed down, I don't want to be writing the movie in post production," Cameron said. "We kind of did that on the first picture, I ended up cutting out a lot of scenes and so on and I don't want to do that again." He also reveals that, if the groundbreaking 48 frames per second format is widely accepted for The Hobbit, then it'll "pave the way" for the Avatar sequels to use the format.
