With so much attention focused on 2015, and the explosion of tentpole releases that are coming, it's worth noting that the biggest sequel of them all isn't due until the year after. James Cameron is gearing up to make some of the biggest films of all time as he's working on three sequels to 'Avatar,' with the first due in 2016, and today some expected casting for the series has been confirmed: Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will return to Pandora.

James Cameron made movie history when 'Avatar' became the No. 1 box office movie of all time, and if that doesn't warrant a sequel (or, rather, a bunch of sequels), what does? Cameron has already begun work on three more 'Avatar' films -- the first of which to be released in December 2016 -- and, of course, there's been some misleading gossip as to where he'll take us next. To set the record straight a bit, the director let loose a few tantalizing tidbits to whet the palette.

Despite being the highest grossing film of all time, public opinion on James Cameron's 'Avatar' seems to be all over the place. However, there's one thing that everyone can agree on -- Stephen Lang made one helluva villain. His evil Colonel Miles Quaritch may have been one moustache shy of tying women to railroad tracks, but it was a fun, broad performance that made his complete and utter defeat feel like a real triumph.
And he'll be back for the sequels ... somehow.

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, 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.
