The fourth and fifth Avatar films may not be directed by James Cameron, according to his admission.
Avatar Following the groundbreaking film from 2009, four sequels have been released to continue the Pandora saga. The first film, Avatar: The Way of Water, will be released in December, and the third film, which was shot concurrently with the sequel, will come out in 2024.
The fourth and fifth films have not yet entered production, albeit they might not be directed by the same filmmaker Cameron.
EmpireCameron remarked in conversation: “The Avatar movies themselves are kind of all-consuming. In addition, I have another project I’m growing that is quite exciting.
I believe that eventually – I’m not sure if that will be after three or after four – I’ll want to pass the hat to a director who I trust to take over, so I can go do other things that I’m also considering. I’m not sure, but it might not.
Nevertheless, the plot in the latter films makes the filmmaker satisfied. Themes that are important to me in both my real life and my career as a filmmaker, such as family, sustainability, the environment, and the natural world, can all be said on this canvas, he continued.
“As I continued, I became more enthusiastic. Fourth is a cracker. It’s a mother******er. I sincerely hope I succeed. However, it is subject to market pressures. Three is within the container, so it will still pop out. Since it’s finally one big plot, I really hope we get to do episodes 4 and 5.
In the sequel, Sigourney Weaver will portray Kiri, the adolescent adoptive daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana). This information was made public last week.
Stephen Lang (Colonel Miles Quaritch), Giovanni Ribisi (Parker Selfridge), Joel David Moore (Dr. Norm Spellman), Dileep Rao (Dr. Max Patel), CCH Pounder (Mo’at), and Matt Gerald are other confirmed cast members who will be repeating their roles (Corporal Lyle Wainfleet).
According to another report from Empire, Kate Winslet is prepared to portray a “very devoted and brave leader” in the Ronal sequel. Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, Oona Chaplin, Vin Diesel, and CJ Jones are more new cast members.
