Are you tired of 'Avatar' yet? Well, you might be very soon. James Cameron has just tapped a novelist to write four books based on the film and its three upcoming sequels, just in case four movies weren't enough for you, the demanding and adoring public who so clearly wanted this.

Yesterday, it was announced that our future stay in Pandora will be longer than expected. Three sequels to the James Cameron blockbuster 'Avatar' are currently being prepared, with the first expected to drop in 2016. But this begs the question: are you still even excited about returning to that world?

Yesterday, we reported the news that James Cameron and 20th Century Fox hired 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' writer Josh Friedman to work on the script for 'Avatar 2,' though the studio had no comment. Today, they've not only confirmed Friedman's involvement, they've announced that writers Shane Salerno ('Savages') and the team of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver ('Rise of the Planet of the Apes') will also be joining the 'Avatar' sequel team. Why so many writers? Because 'Avatar 2,' 'Avatar 3' and 'Avatar 4' will all be filmed simultaneously and that all four writers will assist Cameron in hashing out the three screenplays.

After years of everyone remaining relatively silent on the matter, the first real details of 'Avatar 2' may have finally emerged.

James Cameron has certainly been keeping himself busy -- the director, known for crafting some pretty epic films, is hard at work on both 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3,' but he still hasn't forgotten about another passion project: 'Battle Angel Alita,' based on the Japanese comics of the same name. And he's still committed to getting around to making that movie, but probably not as soon as you think.

James Cameron's 'Avatar' shattered box-office records during its time in theaters and currently sits at the $2.7 billion mark in total worldwide grosses. It's only natural with a film of this magnitude to wonder how the whole idea came about, and now we have an in-depth account of how the man of 'Titanic,' 'Aliens' and 'The Terminator' fame created this modern flick. Too bad he was kind of forced to do it!

'Mythbusters' Settles the 'Titanic' Debate: Did Jack Have to Die?

It was a debate that had raged since 'Titanic' hit theaters 25 years ago: did Rose leave Jack to die by not letting him up on the board as they floated in the ocean. James Cameron maintains that the board would have only been big enough for one of them and Jack died valiantly, letting Rose live. Others argue that they could have at least tried to fit work it so both of them could have survived. But would it have actually worked? 'Mythbusters' to the rescue!

Will 'Avatar' Sequels Introduce Chinese Na'vi?

by Nick Romano September 20, 2012 @ 9:02 AM
According to 'Avatar' director James Cameron, "China could easily be as big a gross-revenue market for film as North America," which was probably why his company Cameron/Pace Group recently announced a new partnership venture called CPG China. The main goal is to set up camera and 3D production services to Tiajin, the northern city port, but what does this mean for Cameron and his upcoming projects? Well, according to him, it means we could be seeing Chinese Na'vi in 'Avatar 2,' '3' and '4.'
