James Cameron hints at "Avatar 4"
In a recent interview, director James Cameron has indicated that the Avatar blockbuster franchise would be his main focus from now on with no plans of developing anything else.
Having said that, the filmmaker has yet to kick off production for parts two and three, but has hinted that there could a fourth instalment to his fantasy series.
"I'm making Avatar, Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4, and I'm not going to produce other people's movies for them.
"I'm not interested in taking scripts.
"I've divided my time over the last 16 years over deep ocean exploration and filmmaking. I've made two movies in 16 years, and I've done eight expeditions," he told The New York Times.
"Last year I basically completely disbanded my production company's development arm. So I'm not interested in developing anything. I'm in the Avatar business. Period. That's it."
As for Avatar 2, Cameron shared: “We've spent the last year and a half on software development and pipeline development.”
"It was a very, very uphill battle on the first film. So we've been mostly working on the tool set, the production pipeline, setting up the new stages in Los Angeles, setting up the new visual effects pipeline in New Zealand, that sort of thing. And, by the way, writing.
“We haven't gotten to the design stage yet. That'll be next."
