Avatar 2 and 3 could be shot back to back according to heavyweight director James Cameron.
While discussing various projects with MTV this weekend, Cameron talked about the possibilities of the Na’Vi follow-ups.
He confirmed that, though we know Pandora's oceans will be involved, he won’t even pick up a pen – or, alright, load up Final Draft on his PC – until the projects have officially been greenlit.
“We don’t start the movie until we get the deals worked out,” he sensibly explained, before adding that he’s not “sitting idle” – he’s currently making notes and working on the Avatar novelisation.
Meanwhile, he also spoke about the back to back shooting possibilities, stating:
“That is something that makes a lot of sense, given the nature of these productions, because we can bank all the [motion] capture and then go back and do cameras over a period of time…
“The way these back-to-back productions fall apart is that you’re trying to do two live-action films back to back, and you’re working on it for a year and a half, shooting. Everyone is dead. It’s not humanly possible. This type of film, it absolutely would work.”
