Avatar 2 – Avatar 3
Cameron [was asked] about the status of his sequels [recently]:
I’m working on ‘Avatar 2? and ‘Avatar 3.’ I was talking the other day with Peter Jackson and said, ‘You had it easy dude. You had the books when you did the second and third ‘Lord of the Rings.’ I have to create my own books in my head and extract a script from it. I’m deep into it and I’m living in Pandora right now. There is that start up torque where you feel it’s coming to you. Then you build up momentum. That’s when it gets fun. The characters talk and it’s writing itself. I’m almost there right now. It’s building fast.
Questioned about sequel pressure:
Pressure, no. It’s a little daunting because sequels are always tricky. You have to be surprising and stay ahead of audience anticipation. At the same time, you have to massage their feet with things that they know and love about the first film. I’ve walked that line in the past, so I’m not too worried about it. At the same time, I definitely have to deliver the goods.
Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla reboot has been kept under very tight wraps through most of its development process, but one aspect of the film that’s no secret is its top-notch cast. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, and Juliette Binoche(!) have all boarded over the past few months. Now, with principal photography underway, one more name has been added to that roster: Ken Watanabe. Hit the jump to read more.
