‘Avatar 2’ eyes a 2014 bow
HollywoodNews.com: You want to see “Avatar 2”?
Well, you are going to have to wait. About three years.
James Cameron has supposedly said that the sequel to the highest grossing film in the world won’t hit cinemas until 2014. And ala “Matrix,” Cameron plans to shoot both the second and third chapters back-to-back.
“Right now, the thinking is that [films] two and three are going to be done together. They’ll be released separately, probably a year apart or maybe even two, but they’ll be done in a bunch,” Cameron told Digital Spy.
The director adds: “I’m mapping out the storyline right now, so there’s a proper arc that plays out over two films, but [it] buttons nicely at the end of two, so you don’t get this horrible second act ‘Matrix’ feeling – you know, ‘I’ve just sat through a three-hour movie and f**k all happened at the end!'”
Cameron began writing “Avatar” in 1994. The film has grossed $2.7 billion worldwide and its extended cut will be re-released in some 700 theaters this Friday complete with a 20 second Na’vi sex scene.
