AVATAR Sequel Possible?

We’ve already talked about the sheer scale of the mondo-hit movie Avatar, and naturally mentioned the line ot action figures that accompanies any fantasy film with this kind of success. But like every movie these days, it sounds like might be in for a second installment–and definitely not in the decades it took Cameron to conceive of and create the first one!

The GK Men blog has the story…

The popcorn has yet to be swept from the theatre isles for James Cameron’s winter blockbuster Avatar and already the director is announcing plans for sequels.

Cameron, known for his big budget franchises which include Alien and The Terminator, has told MTV he has plans for not one but two sequels for his new blue heroes.

The director, who was also responsible for the epic Titanic movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslett, told the broadcaster that sequels were always part of the plan when he set about creating his hi-tech masterpiece.

“I have a trilogy-scaled arc of story right now, but I haven’t really put any serious work into writing a script,” he said.

However, the subsequent on screen adventures will hit screens sooner than the first part of the franchise as the technology is now already in place, Cameron explained.

“My next goal is to refine the technique, make it easier so it doesn’t take as long,” he added

“We were doing a lot of pioneering work on ‘Avatar.’ It wouldn’t have taken as long if we already knew exactly how to do it.”
