Sigourney Weaver says that she's already filming Avatar 4 and 5

James Cameron's AVATAR is still the highest grossing film of all-time, but by the time the first sequel rolls around, it will have been over a decade since we last stepped foot on the world of Pandora. It remains to be seen whether or not audiences will turn up in the same numbers, but as James Cameron has four sequels planned, he'd better hope that they do. Production on AVATAR 2 and 3 has already been completed and although James Cameron had previously said that the final two installments won't happen if the first two sequel don't make enough money, Sigourney Weaver told THR that she's already busy doing AVATAR 4 and 5.

Sigourney Weaver dropped the tidbit while discussing whether or not Neill Blomkamp's ALIEN sequel will ever happen.

We almost started to do it when I was working with James Cameron. But by the time we were put off by Fox, Neill had gotten so many jobs that we’d have to wait probably. I’m busy doing Avatar 4 and 5. I love working with Neill and I think he’d do a terrific job, and James Cameron really thinks it’s a great idea, so you never know. Right now, I think Neill’s got like three projects going at once

The actress played Dr. Grace Augustine in the first film, but will be returning in the sequels for a different role which will continue across the four films. "We just finished shooting two and three. We shot it in LA and James has announced publicly that there’s a lot of underwater work, so we learned how to free dive and we did many scenes underwater which was challenging and kind of cool," Weaver said, adding that although the sequels tell one story, they're all independent and could work without 4 and 5, hinting that they're still not a guarantee.

Even though the AVATAR franchise has been absent from the big-screen for some time, Sigourney Weaver is confident that the new films will still manage to change the cinema experience.

I think that because the water becomes another world. The scripts are amazing, and in the first one, which I love, I think he hadn’t set up a lot of things. In this one he got to tell this very personal story. They’re amazing. There’s a message to not sacrifice everything for greed and conquest. It will take all four movies to really make that message loud and clear for the whole world.

AVATAR 2 is slated for a December 18, 2020 release, with the sequels potentially following on December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024, and December 19, 2025.
