James Cameron is a man of incredible patience. He waited extensively to finally make Avatar, after coming hot off of the success of Titanic.
Most thought an Avatar sequel would have came and gone by now, yet here we sit almost ten years later without a trace of blue people with large tails.
Cameron has gone on record to say that sequels are coming and he must not have been lying, because the director is apparently done writing Avatar….2-5.
That’s right; Cameron is looking to re-invent the concept of a shared cinematic universe with his never-ending installments of Avatar.
He had this to say about it:
The thing is, my focus isn’t on Avatar 2. My focus is on Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5 equally. That’s exactly how I’m approaching it. They’ve all been developed equally. I’ve just finished the script to Avatar 5.
I’m now starting the process of active prep. I’ll be working with the actors in the capture volume in August, so I’m booked in production every day between now and then. Our volume is up and running, and everything is designed, and so we’re going full-guns right now. I feel like I’ve been let out of jail, because I’ve been in the writing cave for the last two years. I’m actually enjoying life. I don’t enjoy writing. I wouldn’t wish writing on a dog.
Many doubt Cameron as a filmmaker, citing their dislike of Avatar as the reason to not care about what Cameron does next, but I must remind you never to bet against the man. His films are some of the last remaining examples of Hollywood blockbuster filmmaking done with craft, creativity and attention to detail.
Sure, Avatar may not be the most creative film in the world, but Cameron’s ability to write solid characters and create larger-than-life worlds that are visually stunning and technically flawless, must not be ignored.
I’m very curious to see how he handles this series.
