James Cameron Talks Avatar Sequels, Battle Angel Alita and Fantastic Voyage

During the London press conference for the debut of Avatar, director James Cameron confirmed that sequels are definitely a possibility:

“Actually, when I pitched this to 20th Century Fox four-and-a-half years ago, I said, ‘You know, we’re going to spend a lot of money and time and energy creating not only a process but the assets, the CG assets, we call them – all the models of every rock and tree and plant and creature and the muscle rigs for all the creatures and the facial rigging for the main characters and all that’… huge, millions and millions of dollars. So it really makes sense to think of it as the potential start of a franchise, if you will, or a saga that plays out over several acts, each movie being an act of that saga. And I have it mapped out, but I haven’t written the scripts yet. And it all depends on whether we do well with the first film. But that was certainly the intention from the beginning – to create a foundation for a persistent world.”

Cameron also talked about other projects he’s lining up, including an adaptation of the manga series Battle Angel Alita which he’s still attached to direct: “Battle Angel is one of the films I’ll be considering when I decide what to do next,” and Fantastic Voyage which he’s developing for 20th Century Fox: “We’ve been working on a script for ‘Fantastic Voyage,’ but that’s not for me to direct,” the director said. “That’s just a produced project. It’s quite different. But it’s got enough of the original story that you’ll still recognize it.”
