And to start off Avatar sequel news- Sam Worthington will be joining the cast in the second Avatar movie.
Worthington, 33, stars in the current, as paraplegic marine Jake Sully in Avatar as well.
James Cameron had a sequel in mind while filming the current movie. “I’ve had a story line in mind from the start — there are even scenes in Avatar that I kept in because they lead to the sequel,” Cameron says.
“It just makes sense to think of it as a two-or-three-film arc, in terms of the business plan. The [computer generated] plants and trees and creatures and the musculoskeletal rigging of the main characters — that all takes an enormous amount of time to create,” he says. “It’d be a waste not to use it again.”
Currently, Avatar has grossed $1.3 billion. And it is up against The Hurt Locker, Inglorious Basterds, Precious and Up in the Air for Best Picture at Sunday’s Golden Globes.
