Sigourney Weaver: James Cameron Will Shoot AVATAR 2, 3 And 4 Concurrently

We have all heard that James Cameron will be shooting AVATAR 2 & 3 back to back and that the man himself hinted at a fourth movie to be thrown in the mix - well now it seems that the hint was true as it has been confirmed by someone who should know: Sigourney Weaver.

Weaver was asked about her upcoming slate of projects (unfortunately precious little direct quotes):
She goes right into a new Christopher Durang play for a short run at Lincoln Center. Then she films Avatar 2, 3, and 4 with James Cameron. That’s right: they’re making three sequels to the blue 3D phenom all at the same time. Weaver says she has no idea how long it will take, or how it’s going to work. “I just show up,” she said.

There you have it. When James Cameron said he was in the AVATAR business, he meant it.

Think about what this means. The director of the top two movies of all time is now preparing to unleash not one but three sequels to his number one hit. Don't forget this guy's track record with sequels. So imagine just how crazy this is going to get! Finally we have a series of films from him that will rival STAR WARS.

Interesting to hear that Sigourney will be in ALL the AVATAR movies. That in itself is a bit of a spoiler... 

I'll have more soon as pre-production ramps up on the movies. Up until now, there simply has been nothing to report as he had the smallish task of diving solo to the bottom of the world for the first time ever. Stay tuned! It's about to get really hot around here...
