James Cameron adds ‘Terminator The Sarah Connor Chroniciles’ creator for script work on ‘Avatar 2’

James Cameron has recruited a new screenwriter to work on the script for Avatar 2, with The Wrap reporting that Josh Friedman has signed on to the project.

Friedman was responsible for creating TV spin-off Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, so Cameron appears to be seeking some help on the new films.

Friedman is only thought to be working on Avatar 2, although the two sequels are supposed to be filming back to back, so it would be a surprise if he didn’t then move on to the third film. Cameron himself has been working on the scripts for the two Avatar sequels for the last four years, and Friedman may be just bringing a fresh approach to the material.

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
