Clash of the Titans star Sam Worthington is all signed up to return to Pandora for the various sequels to Avatar, with the star confirming that filming is set to begin in October 2014.

“We are going to start [shooting] this time next year and we will do two, three and four,” said Worthington in an interview with an Australian radio station. “I’ll be grateful if it finishes!”

Worthington went on to suggest that the three films will be filmed within a year-long shoot, which would set the studio up to release a sequel each December for 2016, 2017 and 2018.

A new screenwriter was brought in to brush up the scripts and rumors of Arnold Schwarzenegger will be playing an evil Army general, likely similar to the Stephen Lang character in the first film.

According to Cameron, filming will begin early next year ahead of a 2015 release date for Avatar 2.

The rumors were that filming could start in 2014, with star Zoe Saldana even confirming those plans – read more on those rumors here
