Whilst Harry Potter has spent the summer making merry at the box office, one can only imagine Jim Cameron watching on (possibly stroking a white cat) and plotting his revenge. And according to star Sam Worthington, the 3D mastermind is already hard at work on Avatar 2 and 3.
“Jim talked to me on my birthday,” revealed Worthington at a recent press day for spy thriller The Debt. “In regards to Avatar, he’s writing the bible, at the moment, which is a precursor to Avatar 1 and the whole world, basically.
"I think it’s just to get Jim’s mind back into the characters and back into the world. He’s told me where he wants to take Avatar 2 and 3, and it’s monumental. It’s just huge.”
Far from being daunted by the prospect of shooting back-to-back films, Worthington simply can’t wait to return to Pandora.
“I love it,” he continues. “I’d do 10 [sequels] with Jim! I love working with him. He raises the bar and gives you the courage to jump over it, and he keeps pushing. He changes your life. He hasn’t just changed my life career-wise. He’s changed my life as a man.”
Praise indeed, although Avatar 2 won’t be the first big sequel we’ll see Worthington return for. That distinction will go to Clash Of The Titans 2:
“[The first film] made a shitload of money,” laughs Worthington. “A lot of people went and saw it. I’ve just finished that and I loved it! Clash 2 is so different. It was a different experience for me because I’d learned a lot from Clash 1, and I’d learned a lot from other movies. I can’t wait for it to come out.”
Clash Of The Titans 2 arrives in UK cinemas on 30 March 2012. Avatar 2 has yet to receive a release date. Over to you, Jim...
