Three AVATAR sequels confirmed from 2016
While there have been rumours of two Avatar sequels to follow, it has now been confirmed by Fox that there will be three back to back sequels hitting the big screen, with the first instalment due to be released in December 2016.
Cameron has turned to screenwriters to assist in writing the sequels, confirming Josh Friedman will write on the first sequel, and the other two will be looked after by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Shane Salerno (Armageddon, Savages), who was working with Cameron on the remake of ‘Fantastic Voyage’.
Cameron, speaking at a recent conference, said, “Building upon the world we created with 'Avatar' has been a rare and incredibly rewarding experience. In writing the new films, I’ve come to realize that Avatar’s world, story and characters have become even richer than I anticipated, and it became apparent that two films would not be enough to capture everything I wanted to put on screen. And to help me continue to expand this universe, I’m pleased to bring aboard Amanda, Rick, Shane and Josh — all writers I’ve long admired -¬ to join me in completing the films screenplays.”
The first sequel is said to be released in December 2016, the second in December 2017 and the third in December 2018.
