All has been a bit quiet of late on the subject of Avatar, it seems like an age ago now that James Cameron captured (and took over) the world with his science fiction epic, that smashed box offices to bits.
Now according to one of its stars, Sam Worthington, Cameron is already hard at work on Avatar 2 and 3. At a recent press day for his upcoming film The Debt, Worthington said: “In regards to Avatar, he’s writing the bible, at the moment, which is a precursor to Avatar 1 and the whole world, basically.
“I think it’s just to get Jim’s mind back into the characters and back into the world. He’s told me where he wants to take Avatar 2 and 3, and it’s monumental. It’s just huge.”
The thought of shooting back to back films would be daunting in itself for any actor (just ask the cast of LOTRs) but Worthington is desperate to get back into it once more.
“I love it,” he continues. “I’d do 10 [sequels] with Jim! I love working with him. He raises the bar and gives you the courage to jump over it, and he keeps pushing. He changes your life. He hasn’t just changed my life career-wise. He’s changed my life as a man.”
The next sequel for Worthington however will be the sequel to Clash of the Titans which should arrive in the UK 30 March 2012.
“[The first film] made a shitload of money,” laughs Worthington. “A lot of people went and saw it. I’ve just finished that and I loved it! Clash 2 is so different. It was a different experience for me because I’d learned a lot from Clash 1, and I’d learned a lot from other movies. I can’t wait for it to come out.”
No dates have been set for either of the Avatar sequels but no doubt news will filter through soon!
