Although James Cameron has been deeply entrenched in developing sequels to his 2009 blockbuster movie “Avatar” for over a decade, the director has shared that he’s considering leaving the world of Pandora behind for other projects in the future.
The first part of the Avatar series, “The Way of Water,” is set to hit theaters on December 16. Looking forward to a release in 2024.
While Cameron certainly has a vision for more “Avatar” stories after these two films, he may not be on top of potential subsequent entries. The manager said empire He is considering leaving the franchise in the hands of another director after he has completed work on the third entry.
“The avatars themselves are kind of expendable,” Cameron said. “I have a few other things to develop as well that are exciting. I think over time – I don’t know if it’s after three or after four – I’ll want to pass the baton to a manager I trust, so I can do some other things that I’m also interested in.” …or maybe not. I don’t know.”
However, Cameron expressed his happiness about the possibility of watching his grand plan for the “Avatar” series come to fruition.
“The fourth movie is Corker. He is a motherfucker. I actually hope I can make it happen. But it depends on market forces,” Cameron said. “Three in a box so it comes out regardless. I really hope we get four and five because it’s one big story, in the end.”
Cameron relinquished the director’s chair for the projects he spent years on with the 2019 film Alita: Battle Angel, which was eventually directed by Robert Rodriguez while Cameron remained linked to production as executive producer and co-writer.
