Waiting for AVATAR 2

I didn’t even like comics or cartoons on TV when I was younger. They did not seem to appeal to me. When a few weeks ago Avatar came on free to air TV in my area I decided to finally watch it!

Do you know I thought it was one of the best movies I have ever seen. Enjoyed it immensely.

It was with interest that today I read an article reporting an interview with Director James Cameron:

Q. What about scripts that you’re looking at? Is there a project that you’re working on right now? Or subject matters or general areas of interest that you’re looking at?

A. That’s interesting. I’ve divided my time over the last 16 years over deep ocean exploration and filmmaking. I’ve made two movies in 16 years, and I’ve done eight expeditions. Last year I basically completely disbanded my production company’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything. I’m in the “Avatar” business. Period. That’s it. I’m making “Avatar 2,” “Avatar 3,” maybe “Avatar 4,” and I’m not going to produce other people’s movies for them. I’m not interested in taking scripts. And that all sounds I suppose a little bit restricted, but the point is I think within the “Avatar” landscape I can say everything I need to say that I think needs to be said, in terms of the state of the world and what I think we need to be doing about it. And doing it in an entertaining way. And anything I can’t say in that area, I want to say through documentaries, which I’m continuing. I’ve done five documentaries in the last 10 years, and I’ll hopefully do a lot more. In fact, I’m doing one right now, which is on this, the Deep Sea Challenge project that we just completed the first expedition. So that’ll be a film that’ll get made this year and come out first quarter of next year.”

So there you are, I am now waiting for Avatar 2. The first Avatar wrapped itself up neatly at the end, so it will be interesting to see where Cameron decides to go with it next.

We might have to wait awhile though I am reading that it will be 2015 or so.
