Sam Worthington talks Jake in ‘Avatar 2’, filming this summer, ‘great script’

Director James Cameron has been developing a set of Avatar sequels over the last few years and star Sam Worthington spoke about the project while promoting his new film The Shack.

During an interview with We Got This Covered, Worthington said: “They’re going to be shooting concurrently. The plan is to have some time in between, I think, but these things are always ambiguous until they start.”

While there was delay after delay, it sounds like production will finally start this summer.

“We’re still set to start in the summer, though. James needed time to perfect the scripts. Whenever he says jump I go because he’s the man. I’ve read all the scripts, they’re great. This is going to be Jake eight years later, and he’s got a family now.”

Worthington teased the scale of the film, “bigger than the first one” and explores a “family dynamic.”

“This film is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen. The world is bigger than the first one, but essentially, it’s a movie about family. Jake will still have that essence of a kid seeing the world for the first time, but he’s been living in the world for a while now, so what’s this world he’s seeing now for the first time? The film will explore that within this family dynamic.”

Stay tuned for details if the production begins that quickly.

Worthington will return with Zoe Saldana (now a star in the Star Trek reboot franchise and Guardians of the Galaxy) with Sigourney Weaver and Stephen Lang appearing in some sort of fashion, despite both of their respective characters dying in the first film.

Avatar 2 still set for release on December 21, 2018.
