James Cameron said he expects to release his next film in 3-4 years and that it may be the sequel to AVATAR with even more 3D technology than the first version. He's also already leaked details about what will be in the next version of the film – and why it won't be called AVATAR 2. Cameron has also hinted all along that the sequel may even be already well underway: "I've had a storyline in mind from the start–there are even scenes in AVATAR that I kept in because they lead to the sequel. The CG plants and trees and creatures and the musculo-skeletal rigging of the main characters–that all takes an enormous amount of time to create. It’d be a waste not to use it again." And Sam Worthington is already signed to play Jake Sully again.
Of course, given Cameron's history of taking 10 years to complete a film, there's still a chance that his next film won't be the sequel to AVATAR and instead be "some other big film that uses 3D." But he's also said he wouldn't let anyone else direct the sequel and News Corp has confirmed it is in talks with Cameron about the sequel. Even actors whose characters got killed at the end of the movie want a encore: “You think those two arrows in my chest are going to stop me from coming back?” said Stephen Lang, who plays the evil Quaritch."Nothing’s over so long as they’ve got my DNA."
What do you think - will the AVATAR sequel be Cameron's next new film?
