So, James Cameron wants to make four Avatar movies, because he won’t be satisfied until he has the top-five grossing movies of all time I guess. That’s a lot of Avatar. I mean, there was a direct-to-video Fern Gully 2 he could maybe split into a couple sequels, but what’s he going to do for the fourth movie? Prequel time!
“I have an idea for a fourth. I haven’t really put pen to paper on it, but basically it goes back to the early expeditions of Pandora, and kind of what went wrong with the humans and the Na’vi and what that was like to be an explorer and living in that world.”
Hmmm, great. Avatar. Whatever. I’m much more interested in James Cameron’s loooong in development Battle Angel Alita project, because Battle Angle Alita is f–king awesome. According to producer Jon Landau the Battle Angel movie is still very much in the works, and may come out sometime around 2017. That’s a long wait, but I have hope Cameron won’t be able to resist the lure of sexy robot fighting forever.
