‘Avatar’ Will Reportedly Have 3 Simultaneous Shoot Sequels

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 06/26/2012



This is news that may shake up the film world. Avatar is reportedly getting three, as in three new sequels. According to Sigourney Weaver they will be shoot simultaneously. Over two years of filming with James Cameron? Good luck actors. He is going to wear their asses out if this is true. None of these actors will want to work again for a year after the gauntlet of three straight films with great, but demanding director.

AvatarOver at Showbiz 411, Roger Friedman caught up with Sigourney Weaver at the NYC premiere of the new USA Network show “Political Animals” and asked the actress what she was up to next. And apparently her calendar looks something like this: “she goes right into a new Christopher Durang play for a short run at Lincoln Center. Then she films ‘Avatar‘ 2, 3, and 4 with James Cameron. That’s right: they’re making three sequels to the blue 3D phenom all at the same time.” Of course, Weaver couldn’t say anything more about her role or how extensive this three-movie shoot would be, only to say, “I just show up.”

It looks like James Cameron wasn’t kidding when he said Avatar would occupy the rest of his career. Coming off the highest grossing film of all-time, there are many other projects one would likely rather see him take on, but the helmer is staying firmly in the world of Pandora. And this is now clear as can be.

Again, this will rock the film world. It James Cameron pulls this off, he will be setting the standard yet again. Say what you will about the man. He’s an asshole. A known asshole who doesn’t sign autograph’s or talk to his fans, but he can direct his ass off and has become “the” pioneer of film since taking the torch from Lucas in the early nineties.
