'Avatar' Sequels to Begin Production in October 2014, Says Sam Worthington
The lead actor reveals the new shooting schedule during an Australian radio interview.
We're just a year away from the start of production on the second in James Cameron's Avatar movie series, according to its lead actor, with the director currently hard at work "building the ship to Pandora." Hopefully, he means that in the metaphorical sense.
Talking during an interview with Australian radio station Nova 96.9, Sam Worthington said that he expected photography to begin on Avatar 2 in October 2014, with shooting for the second, third and fourth movies in the series to be completed within a year ahead of each new installment's annual release, from December 2016 through December 2018.
It's almost been four years since the release of the first Avatar, and just two months since it was revealed that Cameron would create three sequels instead of the originally planned two, with Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Shane Salerno writing the screenplays. Additionally, novelist Steven Gould has been signed to write four original novels to support the new series.
