Red Alert: Avatar 2 Begins Production! No really, this time!
Article by Anthony Cleveland
Early this week James Cameron was promoting T2: 3D for Entertainment Weekly. When asked what the status of Avatar 2 was, Cameron stated "We're in full-tilt production."
Not pre-pre-production, but production production, like he's going to actually shoot it---er I mean render it in a PC?
Yep. They're currently 'scouting' but Cameron claims they will shoot in September.
Cameron states: "Basically... I’m on the stage all day long during the scouting process, because there are no sets or locations, other than in the virtual world, so I do all my location-scouting with a troop of actors that go through the virtual sets, and give me a sense of the scale and position, lighting, that sort of thing. Then, I’m in rehearsals with my principal cast and I start with them at the end of September.”
So, I guess Pandora really is out of the box. *du-dum tis*
Avatar 2 is currently set to release in 2020 -- that's 11 years after the first film was released. If the film was even released today, would it have an impact? I feel like Avatar has faded from a lot of people's memories.
But. Then again. Never doubt the king of sequels.
