Re: 'Avatar 2' Casting, Rumors, Pics till release

Cameron was talking about the DVD and Blu Ray releases of Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D, but questions on Avatar inevitably came up

Status on Avatar sequels from Cameron
Iím working on ĎAvatar 2′ and ĎAvatar 3.í I was talking the other day with Peter Jackson and said, ĎYou had it easy dude. You had the books when you did the second and third ĎLord of the Rings.í I have to create my own books in my head and extract a script from it. Iím deep into it and Iím living in Pandora right now. There is that start up torque where you feel itís coming to you. Then you build up momentum. Thatís when it gets fun. The characters talk and itís writing itself. Iím almost there right now. Itís building fast.

So he is still in the writing stage.

Re: 'Avatar 2' Casting, Rumors, Pics till release

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles creator Josh Friedman had been enlisted to pitch in on the screenplay for Avatar 2. It just so happens that this was only one third of the story, as Fox announced today that Cameron has actually enlisted the help of four screenwriters to collaborate with him on the screenplays for not only Avatar 2 and 3, but also Avatar 4

All 3 sequels will be filmed simultaneously.
Dec.2016 Avatar 2 release window.

This is starting to sound like a bad idea.
I know there is a core Avatar following however, will the audiences swallow this story again? I don't think anywhere near the degree they did the first time.

Like Sony planning TASM 3-5, it's sounding like overreach.

James Cameron Has Found ‘Avatar’s Darth Vader: It’s Stephen Lang

DAMN! Quaritch isn't dead after all?

Why do they ALWAYS bring back villains they clearly killed off in the first movie for these franchise films? We are going to get another lame explanation like what happened with the "Matrix Reloaded" with Agent Smith aren't we?

Ugh, really? I wasn't a huge fan of the first film in general, but his character was easily my least favorite thing.

Re: 'Avatar 2' Casting, Rumors, Pics till release

It's been a while since I've seen the film but didn't he get shot in the heart by not one, but TWO javelin sized arrows tipped with neuro-toxin? I mean how do you come back from that? We know they have viable cloning technology, but what would be the point in this case? Cyborg maybe? Most likely, but you'd think for that to be even feasible they'd have to have rushed him to a medical facility just to get him stabilized. Also, he went down on a battlefield in the middle of a jungle. You'd think he would have been just left to rot.

^ Maybe they fire up an entirely new clone body, a la the very underrated Arnold flick The 6th Day, where the evil corporation keeps making new copies of the same three henchmen?

Two problems with that. 1) while they can remotely slave a specifically engineered hybrid body to a human brain, it's pretty clear that they can't permanently map memories and personality from one brain to another. 2) Why even bother with this guy? Is his off-world health insurance just *that* good?

Why is that clear? Because they didn't have a backup of Jake's brother's brain to employ? Maybe it takes a long time to make the map, and Jake's brother wouldn't consent to the procedure. It could also be illegal back on Earth, The 6th Day style, so their hypothetical copy of Quaritch could be highly secret and unique.

I was hoping for Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the new bad guy.

Now we get some clone or cyborg or twin brother crap. Or he returns as Na'vi, which would be even more stupid.
