James Cameron has confirmed that Avatar 2 & 3 will begin shooting next year.
The director also said that if The Hobbit is a success after being filmed in 48FPS then his sci-fi sequels would follow suit.
Speaking at the premiere of Peter Jackson’s aforementioned fantasy prequel, Cameron said: “If there is acceptance of 48 (FPS), then that will pave the way for Avatar (sequels) to take advantage of it.”
Commenting specifically on his own sequels, he added: “I want to get these scripts nailed down, I don’t want to be writing the movie in post production. We kind of did that on the first picture, I ended up cutting out a lot of scenes and so on and I don’t want to do that again.”
