Cameron gives us Avatar sequel news and a deleted scene

10.20.2010

James Cameron has created the biggest film of all time (again) and boy does he know it. He's no longer going to take 15 years in between projects, and between being attached to every other epic movie pitch under the sun, it really seems like he wants to get going on AVATAR sequels relatively soon. Before the public loses interest perhaps?

He had a lot to say about his future plans for the series when talking with ComingSoon. Here's his current plan:

"Our plan right now is to do two and three as a single large production and release them a year apart," Cameron said, "In order to do that, we have to refine our technical processes beyond the end of where we were finishing 'Avatar' one a year ago. We need to future-proof ourselves out five or six years to the end of the third film."

As for plot details? We've heard about exploring other moons and such, but what about the characters? Cameron hints that you could see some returning faces you might not expect.

"Who said she died?" Cameron teased with a big grin, "Nobody dies in a science fiction movie. Whether Grace lives or dies depends more on Sigourney's agent than anything."

Yeah, people die in science fiction movies. At least the good ones. But hey, do what you want.

Cameron was also recently at Spike's Scream Awards, which has somehow positioned itself as some kind of big film footage premiere event, and showed us one of the deleted scenes from the upcoming new AVATAR DVD. It features Jake Sully, earthbound and wheelchairbound, kicking ass in a bar fight before being unceremoniously thrown out on his paralyzed ass. Check it out:

Extra Tidbit: Cameron's comment on CLEOPATRA which he's recently been linked to: "It sounds hot, doesn’t it? I mean, Angelina Jolie and Cleopatra? To me, that’s like a slam dunk."

Another anti Cameron atricle, not outright, but the negativity is cleary present.
Wow, You know what? You've convinced me. I hate Cameron now too... Can I sit at the big boys table now, or is it still reserved for retards only?

Cameron is much like Aristotle. Aristotle was a brilliant man, yet also firmly believed that women were deformed men. How he can flip-flop between genius and turd nugget (i.e. 3D overload, typecasts like Jolie, etc.) like he does confounds me.

Also, I'm sorry but that last punch he landed on that guy looked like something straight out of an SNL skit.

I love the Avatar world, I love James Cameron; also, you're wrong no one dies in classic sci-fi legacy films, OG Star Wars, nope, Back to the Future, everyone still alive. Even in LOTR no one you cared about/wasn't some type of double crossing villain died. However, you know who did kill off two of their lead characters and it's looked at as a colossal failure? The Matrix trilogy.

Yes, Avatar was overrated but still a fun popcorn movie. Not Cameron's best, but I could go for another sequel (I mean, we've gotten sequels to films that are much worse). However, the thing that bugs me is whenever he talks about these sequels it's always about the technology, not the story. Like the first movie, I think this will be just another 3D extravaganza with little original plot. I hope I'm wrong, because I know Cameron is better than that (T2, Aliens, etc).

I gotta admit, I didn't really like Avatar, though not so much because the story sucked as because there wasn't enough story for the long running time... but a sequel could still be good, because James Cameron is a talented guy (even if he hasn't done a film I liked since 1994).

As for the comment about no one dying... I rolled my eyes a bit when I read that, sure, but it definitely looks like a joke. He himself has made sci-fi movies where people died, after all. And bringing Sigourney

Talk about moronic "IM A MOVIE BUFF" dipshits. James Cameron is RIGHT. In science-fiction, anyone who died can always be brought back somehow. Every sci-fi has done this. All they ever did was figure out a way to write the person back in somehow if they want to and just about every sci-fi movie/show ever has done this.
Anyways, I like his Peter Jackson approach here and I hope he comes up with a compelling story. The first was basically the intro, it had wayyy to much for there to be a super

The first was basically the intro, it had wayyy to much for there to be a super complex plot, people are way to hard on JC for that. The movie was great and it bugs you losers that it made more money than your stupid favorite sci-fi. He introduced an entirely new sci-fi world in the first film, the story has only just begun.

Nobody dies in science fiction because they can always be brought back to life with science fiction! Jesus. Is it just me or are the internet fanboys getting progressively dumber and dumber each year?

Why automatically assume that everything coming out of Cameron's mouth is just him being an asshole? "Nobody dies in science fiction" is a joke, people! I got it, I laughed! Lighten up.

Just to add, that never before seen footage was pretty badass. The original Avatar release should have had the earth scenes.

Some people are just too stupid to get the joke behind "nobody dies in science fiction". Kind of like how nobody dies in comic books. You can always invent a way to bring someone back when dealing with sci-fi or fantasy. Always. Comic books prove this true over and over again.

Really??? people are going to take a shit on the guy that gave us two of the best sci fi movies ever in T2 and Aliens? Avatar is a great film and people need to shut the fuck up. So what if the guy is a bit out of sorts, all of Hollywood is. The guy knows how to release a good movie. The noone dies comment needs to be shown in the full context as Im sure it was a joke. Zombies spouting off here without all the facts.

George Lucas didn't direct or even write the entirety of first trilogy. And Lucas himself has never made a great film other than A New Hope. Lucas used to be a fantastic producer, and a great idea man, but he was never really a great filmmaker.

I was there covering the event for JoBlo, just to make it clear, when he said "nobody dies in a science fiction movie", he was saying it mostly as a joke. He admitted he didn't know who or what will return but when people inquired about Weaver, his comment seemed more of an in-joke given Weaving's own sci-fi history (coming back in the Alien series after Alien 3) more than a statement on her appearance in an Avatar sequel. He also said the True Lies show has nothing to do with him (about as

Expect a write up of our tour of Giant studios, where they shot most of Avatar soon!

can you give an example of said suckiness that was filmed back to back. The only ones I can think of are LOTR .. which is the best movie trilogy ever, Harry Potter Deathly Hallows which will most certainly not suck .. and I think the Matrix sequals which did not suck. I think your talking out your ass here.

Antarius, you sure you want to use the Matrix as an example? I like your point but I would not include Matrix as a good example.

I am so in between on JC. He has made some awesome movies and Avatar was a decent movie but probably not even his own top 5. I feel ashamed to even like this guys work because he gets too cocky. He throws his opinions around as if they are factual statements and puts off a sense of superiority to other filmmakers because his movies made so much money. Thats like Michael Bay acting like the expert on robot movies because Transformers 2 made a lot of money. Avatar didn't suck but it was nothing

Avatar 2 is not something I am excited about and I will wait to hear how it turns out before I watch it.

I guess in Star Wars we had the ghosts like Obi-Wan. I just wanna say how bizarre it feels how fan-boys seem to be turning on James Cameron after twelve years of eagerly anticipating his return to directing. But that is a pretty silly quote.

Action movies. Nobody dies in action movies like "The Expendables." Nobody that counts, anyway.
