Cameron Finally Admits: 'Yes, There Will Be' an Avatar Sequel
Of course! This isn't a big of a story as you're probably expecting with a headline like that. But with Avatar already the second highest grossing film off all-time, it's completely expected that Fox and James Cameron would be working on an Avatar sequel. However, Cameron likes to keep secrets, and it's been pointed out to me that he's never directed a sequel to any of his movies besides Terminator. Plus, there's some people who think that a sequel just won't happen (for whatever reason). However, according to a report (via AICN) from a very recent Q&A with James Cameron, the man himself did indeed admit: "Yes, there'll be another."
Unfortunately that's pretty much all Cameron said. The report from the Q&A is a bit vague, but they say that Cameron said "to expect the studio to want another one" and that, obviously, "a second film will be easier, as the technology now exists, thanks to the [first] movie." As in, half the reason Avatar took so long is they had to invent the technology used in it. Cameron also stated that "the plan had always been to make a trilogy of films." That gels with our huge report from a few weeks ago about what's next for Avatar (and where they could go in a sequel). So there you have it, there will be another Avatar. But will James Cameron direct it?
