“Avatar” director James Cameron has provided a timeline for the next two installments in what he says will be the “Avatar” trilogy, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Speaking Saturday at the PGA Awards, Cameron said the next two movies will be released about a year apart, with “Avatar 2” coming around Christmas 2014 and the third installment due at Christmas 2015.
“I am in the process of writing the next two ‘Avatar’ films now,” the director told EW. “We are planning to shoot them together and post them together, and we will probably release them not quite back to back, but about a year apart.”
The story points out that the first “Avatar” movie had a number of release dates before it eventually came out in December 2009.
Cameron also offered a hint about casting. “Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form,” he said.
