'Avatar' Sequel Takes Flight
Cameron forms 3D venture, locks studio space for production.
James Cameron is taking the first steps toward his return to Pandora. While the scripts for Avatar 2 and 3 -- due to bow in December 2014 and '15 -- are still being written, Cameron is busy setting the infrastructure necessary for the ambitious, four-year-filmmaking project. He and partner Vince Pace on April 11 used their National Association of Broadcasters keynote address to announce the formation of a new venture, Cameron-Pace Group. The company, which will facilitate 3D television broadcasting with new technology, also is a rebranding and expansion of the duo's Burbank-based camera venture Pace, which makes the Fusion 3D system that was employed to film Avatar. Cameron, 56, is expected to utilize the new business to develop next-generation techniques for the Avatars -- he says he's considering shooting the films at 48 or 60 frames per second, much higher than the traditional 24 frames per second.
