It’s been three years since “Dances With Blue Cat People”, a.k.a. Avatar. When the hell is James Cameron getting around to those supposed sequels? The avatards (me NOT included) are getting restless!
Well, actually, Cameron has been working on the scripts for the sequels ever since the first film became the highest grossing movie of all time. So he’s been sweating blue for a while.
Avatar producer Jon Landau had projected a 2015 release for the first of 2 sequels. Turns out, we’re getting Avatar 2: Electric Boogablue a year early.
While at the premiere for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Cameron revealed to The West Australian that he plans on finishing his scripts by February next year, and production would commence at the end of 2013.
“I want to get these scripts nailed down, I don’t want to be writing the movie in post production,” Cameron said. “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.” said Cameron.
If that wasn’t enough, the director/producer/undersea adventurer revealed his pursuit to jump on the Peter Jackson bandwagon… he plans to shoot the sequels at the new 48 frames per second format. Provided The Hobbit does well at the box office, of course.
So… film will look slightly more realistic. Well, that’s great. I can only hope he puts as much effort into the plot.
