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.

It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, to learn that Cameron is going to shoot Avatar 2, 3, and 4 back-to-back.

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.
