James Cameron Officially Announces AVATAR 2

James Cameron has confirmed what we all expected would be confirmed – what now that the film’s made a billion bucks, and overtaken “Demolition Man” as the most profitable film of all time – once the red laser dots disappeared from his chest, and his wallet started to feel heavier : “Avatar 2” is on the way.

Aint it Cool News reports that Cameron has a trilogy in mind – we knew that all along though, right? – with the first sequel already clearly in his sight. With the technology, and the “Avatar” universe already invented thematically and creatively, the filmmaker noted that the next two films will be much easier to make. The hard work has already been done.

Cameron mentioned recently that “Avatar 2” might not be set on Pandora, and might instead fix on one of the other surrounding planets. Being that he’s signed for three films in all, it’s likely Sam Worthington will be back as the Australican Blue-Dude, Jake Sully.

Question is, Will Cameron direct the film? Doubtful. He’s a guy that doesn’t like to repeat himself, and despite briefly toying with the idea of a “True Lies” sequel, also don’t seem to be a filmmaker too interested in sequels. I’d say he’ll go the George Lucas-route, and likely produce the next two films.

Sorta like J.J. Abrams announcing a CLOVERFIELD Sequel?
