Cameron might shoot Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 back-to-back

In an interview with MTV, Avatar director James Cameron revealed that he has been talking with 20th Century Fox about shooting the two planned sequels back-to-back:

“Avatar 2 we’re still working on deals. So we don’t start the movie until we get the deals worked out…We’re actually talking about [shooting 2 and 3 back-to-back] that’s not a decision yet, but that’s something that makes a lot of sense given the nature of these productions. I’m taking notes you know, I’m not sitting idle…”

Cameron also spoke about the upcoming novelization, which he says he wants to have done before any one else touches his material:

“…[B]ut really what I’m working on right now primarily is the novel. Because we never, I never, had the chance to get the novel done while we were making the movie and I always intended to and I didn’t want to do a cheesy novelization that was like where you know some hack comes in and just kind of makes #$%#. I wanted to do something that was kinda a legitimate novel that was inside the characters heads and didn’t have kinda the wrong cultural stuff the wrong language stuff, you know all that. And ideally that becomes a kind of bible for any other writers that want to come along and riff off with other Avatar-based stories, which I’m not ruling out. I don’t mind opening up the Universe I just don’t want that to happen until I’ve got more meat on the bones because the film is pretty spare when it comes to a lot of the specific details about the back story, the history, the company, what’s happening on Earth, you know, Grace’s back story, Jake’s back story, all that stuff. That all needs to be filled in before other writers can come in and run with it.”

Cameron confirms Avatar will get extended theatrical re-release this August + Sequel will focus on the oceans of Pandora

In an interview with the LA Times, Avatar director James Cameron confirmed recent rumors that the film will be re-released in theaters, revealing that an extended cut of the film (by six additional minutes) will be released in theaters this August:

We’re working on finishing an additional six minutes of the film — which includes a lot of Weta work — for a theatrical re-release in August. We were sold out of our Imax performances right up to the moment until they were contractually obligated to switch to “Alice in Wonderland,” so we know we left money on the table there. And the 3-D really helped “Avatar” right up until the moment that it hurt it. And it hurt it at the moment “Alice” and then “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Clash of the Titans” came in and sucked up all the 3-D screens. We went from declining 8% a week to declining 50%. Clearly, it wasn’t market forces directly; it was the availability of theaters. So we’re going to wait until there’s a time to come back in, inject the new footage into the mix and see if we can interest people in the “Avatar” experience in theaters.

Cameron also talked about the second and third Avatar films. More on that after the fold.
