JAMES CAMERON STILL PLANS TO MAKE ‘BATTLE ANGEL,’ SAYS FOURTH ‘AVATAR’ WILL BE A PREQUEL
James Cameron is a guy who likes to take his time in between film projects. He let seven years go by before he made the sequel to Terminator, and after Titanic he disappeared for over ten years, developing an adaptation of Battle Angel Alita (which he never made), and Avatar, which of course was released in 2009. Cameron is currently in New Zealand working on two sequels to Avatar, which he plans on filming back-to-back. After that, he says he still wants to make Battle Angel, and a fourth Avatar, which he says will be a prequel:
Regarding Battle Angel, Cameron’s co-producer Jon Landau said:
Cameron is already way behind schedule on the two Avatar sequels, which have been pushed back a year to December 2014 for part two, and December 2015 for part three. If he takes another five or six years to get around to Avatar 4, that means he won’t even start production on Battle Angel until 2020 at the earliest. By that point, Cameron will be 65, and will likely be the wealthiest director of all-time. He might be too busy sitting on a throne of gold-plated stacks of 100 dollar bills and ruling over 75% of New Zealand to make movies.
