James Cameron confirms ‘Avatar 2’ should start filming in 2013

The biggest movie of all-time may finally see the sequel come to theaters. “Avatar 2,” an unofficial title, should begin production in 2013, says director and writer James Cameron.

The “Titanic” director made a surprise appearance at Wednesday’s premiere of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in Wellington. Cameron, as quoted by Yahoo Business, discussed how “The Hobbit” is using a new 3D technique, which will be 48 frames per second instead of the standard 24 frames per second.

“If there is acceptance of 48, then that will pave the way for Avatar (sequels) to take advantage of it,” Cameron said. “We charged out ahead on 3D with Avatar, now Peter’s doing it with the Hobbit. It takes that kind of bold move to make change.”

“Avatar 2” and “Avatar 3” are expected to be shot at the same time with a goal of having the scripts done in February and filming to begin late 2013.

“I want to get these scripts nailed down, I don’t want to be writing the movie in post production,” the director said.

“We kind of did that on the first picture, I ended up cutting out a lot of scenes and so on and I don’t want to do that again.”

Two sequels were confirmed earlier this year with the “Terminator” director alluding to a possible fourth film as well.
