Sam Worthington Says Production on AVATAR Sequels Begins October 2014

Director James Cameron has been promising follow-ups to his 2009 film Avatar since shortly after the first pic entered theaters and started breaking box office records.  In true Cameron fashion, the filmmaker has taken his time in crafting the sequels.  We finally got a (hopefully) firm timetable earlier this year, when 20th Century Fox announced that the Avatar trilogy had been expanded to three sequels, with Avatar 2 opening in theaters December 2016.  Now Sam Worthington has provided yet another update on when filming might begin, offering a few other details in the process.  Hit the jump for more.

avatar 2 sequelSpeaking on an Australian radio show (via Yahoo! UK), Worthington said that he expects filming on Avatar 2 to commence in October 2014, adding that much of the writing process for the follow-up has been completed by Cameron.  This isn’t the first time that someone involved with the production has provided a target date for when filming on the Avatar sequels might begin (Cameron said 2013, Zoe Saldana recently said early 2014), so I wouldn’t exactly take this as a hard fact.  Remember, proposed release dates of 2014 and 2015 for Avatar 2 and 3 were announced years ago and that didn’t stop Cameron from pushing things back.

Nevertheless, Cameron has some help in writing these three Avatar sequels so that should make things move a bit more quickly.  Worthington added that production on Avatar 3 and 4 will take place immediately after Avatar 2, so he expects the entire filming process to last for the better part of a year once they start.  Again, it’s tough to take any of this to heart when so many dates and “hoped for” plans have been announced and scrapped over the last four years, but it’s clear that Cameron is very much focused on getting things going sooner rather than later.

    Sam Worthington is counting down the days until he can do something meaningful again lol.

      Avatar is meaningful?

      • scheebles

        Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s more meaningful than say Clash of the Titans or Man on a Ledge or Terminator Salvation. It’s the only thing Worthington has got going for himself.

        Bad movies, but he was good in them. Same could be said of Avatar.

    I think Sam Worthington doesn’t get nearly as much credit as he deserves. I’m not trying to argue that he’s the greatest actor in the world, but I’ve seen plenty worse actors. I just think he’s been given a limited range of roles to take on. Actors need to get out of their comfort zones every once in a while, and more often than not its the filmmakers who don’t let that happen by consistently typecasting actors.

      Ya I think Worthington’s a pretty solid actor. Guy hasn’t really gotten the credit or the decent roles that he deserves.

        The actual source for the story of this seething, fraud movie has not received the credit it deserves either. What is it with you shills and the worship of illegitimacy. http://www.bishopsgait.blogspot.com

    Avatar was an overhyped movie … too much bad 3D and special effects … not enough meaningful writing.

    • Chris Mac

      Bad 3D? Please do tell me where you’ve seen better 3D?

    • Jeffrey Kuhl

      I thought it had a great story. And bad special effects? It’s only the most ground breaking effects ever. I never saw it in 3D, but didn’t have to.

    So, the scripts for “Pocahontas 2 & 3″ are finally ready…
