Los Angeles - James Cameron says the new Avatar films will be "bitchin'."The three sequels to the 2009 blockbuster are currently in pre-production as the screenwriter puts the finishing touches to the scripts, but has hinted fans will be shocked by the blockbuster movies.Speaking of the three - currently untitled - sequels, he said: "They're gonna be bitchin'. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open. (sic)"The 60-year-old director has been working on the films for several years, but progress was made at the beginning of the year with Zoe Saldana confirming she will be reprising her role as Na'vi alien Neytiri, and Sam Worthington returning as protagonist Jake Sully.Lets go down memory lane with this trailer of the original Avatar film that started it all:The Titanic director has also been speaking about how the sequels will be filmed, confirming he has opted to shoot the movies in 48 frames per second as opposed to a rumoured 60 frames per second, explaining it is more sensible for when it is released publicly.Talking to the new issue of Empire magazine, he said: "My thinking at the time was that 60 [FPS] might be a better segue to the video market."I'll be plugging into a system that's a little more mature, so it makes sense for me to do 48 frames at this point."The second Avatar film is due to be shot in 2015, with a release date of December 2016.
