Sigourney Weaver Says All Three 'Avatar' Sequels Will Shoot Back-to-Back; Production to Start This Fall
Now that James Cameron is in the Avatar business, we can expect only Avatar movies and even more Avatar movies from the Titanic director from now on. There may be a documentary thrown in here and there as a change of pace, but Avatar is Cameron's Star Wars, a franchise he will revisit again and again.
According to Sigourney Weaver (via Screenrant), she'll be in all three of the Avatar sequels which will be shooting back-to-back sometime this fall. After what happened to her character in first movie, Weaver's return is a bit of a head-scratcher, but in movies, anything is possible.
We know that the Cameron is going to shoot Avatar 2 and 3 together, but the inclusion of fourth one still caught us off guard because Cameron wasn't that certain about the fourth movie since he last spoke.
Avatar 2 was originally planned for release in 2014, but since the movie won't be finished by then, a 2016 release is more likely.
The first movie made over $2.8 billion at the box office worldwide, and it sits snuggly on top as the all-time box office grosser. We'll see if the sequels can come anywhere near that number, but if any movie can do it, it'll be James Cameron's.
