News of three additional Avatar films should not come as a complete surprise. A few months ago, James Cameron reportedly said, “I’m in the ‘Avatar’ business. Period. That’s it. I’m making Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4.” Roger Friedman over at Showbiz 411 caught up with Sigourney Weaver at the premiere the new USA Network show Political Animals. The report indicates her schedule looks like this: “she goes right into a new Christopher Durang play for a short run at Lincoln Center. Then she films ‘Avatar’ 2, 3, and 4 with James Cameron. That’s right: they’re making three sequels to the blue 3D phenom all at the same time.” Yep . . . it appears Avatar 2, 3 and 4 could shoot back-to-back-to-back. The process is not unheard of, but it’s surprising to hear the franchise could be a total of four films instead of three. The tentative 2014 release date for Avatar 2 becomes less likely unless production begins sooner rather than later. Avatar grossed a ridiculous $2.7 billion dollars worldwide.
