Avatar 2 & 3 to begin shooting next year

November 28th, 2012 by bash Comments

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.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
