James Cameron currently has 4 sequel scripts to Avatar

04.28.2015

You don't make the highest-grossing picture of all time and walk away without some studio having some serious discussions about sequels. Given that it was kinda hard to pull off a sequel to TITANIC, it looks like James Cameron had no problem returning to the world of Pandora and crafting an entire new trilogy with everyone's favorite unobtanium-riddled blue aliens. While Cameron is busy crafting the sequels scripts with writers Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Josh Friedman & Shane Salerno, composer James Horner hinted that these writers may have bit off more than they can chew. Speaking with Hey U Guys, Horner talked about his involvement with the sequel. After mentioning the amazing underwater scenes that we would see, he also confided that right now, Cameron has scripts for 4 sequels, not 3.

James Horner on the AVATAR sequels:

Right now Jim has four sequels script-wise and he’s trying to make it into three. And that is where, I think, his effort is going right now. To keep it to three sequels, because he’s got so much going on. How do you keep it from expanding into a fifth movie, total? And he’ll get that sorted out.

While I didn't have a problem taking AVATAR for what it was worth, I'm really hoping James Cameron has something much more compelling for the sequels. The fact that he has 4 movie's worth of material has me intrigued. While the backlash for AVATAR and any sequels may seem apparent to you and I, there's no doubts that there's a huge audience for sequels given how much the first made. Cameron showed audiences something they had never seen before with AVATAR on a visual level. I hope he delivers that a second time, at the very least. And for the love of unobtanium, please don't split the last movie into two parts...

AVATAR 2 is scheduled to hit in 2017.

Whether it be ghost, twin brother or flashback, I don't care what capacity Stephen Lang is returning to the AVATAR universe. He totally rocked it!

Bring them on

Can't wait. Jimmy C still makes some of the best movies and Avatar was a blast. Visually ahead of its time.

So many genres and so many great actors Cameron could be working with, but he's wasting the rest of his life (as it appears), working on these sequels. While Avatar was a spectacle in theatres, it wasn't original in the slightest.

Cameron is a genius, and be can do whatever he wants. The first Avatar film was great, so I have no problem with Cameron and Fox making 3-4 more movies.

How could going back to Pandora and getting more of that stunning cgi world EVER be a bad thing?? I'll never understand why anyone would react negatively to something like this. If you're not on board, then don't go see them ( which you damn well know you will!), but I say bring them on!! Can't wait for Avatar 17: Rebirth of the Dead Tree

So he's making Avatar into Transformers franchise. I bet the new Mech suit in the movie will be able to transform into something else entirely.

I'm cool with this news. I'm glad that they're only doing 3 sequels, and not 4. I feel like 5 Avatar movies (total) is probably too much. I'm sure Cameron will convert those 4 scripts into 3.

You mean a film that was so juvenile that my 10 year-old asked me why it got so stupid?

I'm torn about this. On the one hand, I agree with people who say that no one really wants another Avatar movie and it's been a while since the first movie. On the other hand, I probably would have said the same thing about Mad Max a couple years ago, but now the new movie is one of my most highly anticipated of the year. If they can make a few kick-ass trailers showing Pandora, I'm sure interest will pop up again. Hopefully Cameron has a better script this time around.

The horror....

Gee, can't wait to be bashed over the head with more ignorant liberal preaching.

Maybe he'll plagiarize Costner's Waterworld this time.

This is literally the most tone deaf thing I've heard....

....in ages. Nobody was screaming for a sequel after the first one, let alone YEARS later! I couldn't possibly care less about this news, and can't imagine there are a lot of people who do. The original was visually spectacular but was always a joke because of it's derivative plot and simplistic political ideology. Cameron used to be a great filmmaker. Now he's a narcissist who thinks he understands science more than the rest of us simpletons (and doesn't think we'll notice that he lives

Enough about avatar. I understand the financial reasons for sequels but what a terrible movie. Even Cameron finally admitted it was essentially a tech demo. If I hadn't been with my cousins I'd walked out and got my money back. Overhyped terrible mashup Last of the Mohicans and Dances with Wolves.

No sequels to Dances with Smurfs please.

I was actively rooting for the corporation and mercs.

Jeez

Not that I think all of these sequels are going to be stellar, but this comment section proves some people will never be happy. If Cameron rushed sequels into production the complaint would be he doesn't give a shit about story and just wants to cash in on the VFX eyegasm. The fact that he actually heard the complaints about the weak story in the first one, and is at least trying to address that before moving forward should be a positive thing! I'm sure he's also aware of how long it's been

Christ. Who is asking for this? Seriously, what is he thinking? Such a talented filmmaker just wasting time. Of all the projects he could be working on. Breaks the heart.

I'm in line with everyone on here. How is this project still in the writing process? It is taking so long that I'm sure the people that were once interested have moved on. Avatar was released 6 years ago! If this was Sony, by this point the sequel to the reboot would be in production.

...

I hate being negative on here, but, I have to agree. To boil it down, who cares. Maybe 2 years ago, maybe last year. That, and FOUR sequel scripts...? I do understand the technology aspect, create movie "events", spectacles, but people are fickle these days.

In these scripts, do the villains have anything to do with GMOs, vaccinations or are they forcing them to eat gluten?

Has the Avatar shipped not sailed yet? It kinda seems like James Cameron is the only person still talking about his movie.
