Link Avatar is getting three sequels. Filming will begin next year. Released in December 2016, 2017, 2018 Cameron has hired screenwriters Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes), and Shane Salerno (Savages, Salinger) to collaborate with him on the screenplays for the three films. Avatar is what made me love science fiction again, so I'm very excited about the sequels. Now that 3D is the norm, I probably won't be so much in awe, but I expect three very entertaining sequels.
