James Cameron plans three Avatar sequels
Los Angeles - James Cameron is to film three Avatar
sequels at the same time.
The 57-year-old director looks set to helm the hat-trick of movies after Sigourney Weaver, who is due to reprise her role as Dr Grace Augustine for the follow up motion pictures to the 2009 3-D sci-fi film - which tells the tale of humans exploiting the natural resources of the planet Pandora - confirmed the plans are in her schedule.
In an interview with Showbiz 411, the 62-year-old actress admits she has no idea how James is going to helm all three movies at once, nor how long it will take before adding: "I just show up."
Sigourney's comments come after James - who has directed Titanic
, The Terminator
- previously admitted he only plans to make Avatar
films for the rest of his career.
He explained: "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.... 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."
