James Cameron Teases Avatar 4, Seems To Kill Off Battle Angel

I don’t know if it’s because planning for the Avatar sequels has been going so well, or maybe James Cameron’s scripts for parts 2 and 3 have ended up overrunning, but for the first time, the writer-director has mentioned the possibility of a part 4.

That, I think, is the good news. The rest is bad.

Cameron was speaking to the New York Times about his professional future:

I’ve divided my time over the last 16 years over deep ocean exploration and filmmaking. I’ve made two movies in 16 years, and I’ve done eight expeditions.

Last year I basically completely disbanded my production company’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything. I’m in the Avatar business. Period. That’s it. I’m making Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4,and I’m not going to produce other people’s movies for them. I’m not interested in taking scripts.

And that all sounds I suppose a little bit restricted, but the point is I think within the Avatar landscape I can say everything I need to say that I think needs to be said, in terms of the state of the world and what I think we need to be doing about it. And doing it in an entertaining way. And anything I can’t say in that area, I want to say through documentaries, which I’m continuing.

I’ve done five documentaries in the last 10 years, and I’ll hopefully do a lot more. In fact, I’m doing one right now, which is on this, the Deep Sea Challenge project that we just completed the first expedition. So that’ll be a film that’ll get made this year and come out first quarter of next year.

A few weeks back, when I was speaking with Cameron, he spoke as though Battle Angel was still a possibility.

Maybe he’s rather more capricious than I had expected and these plans will change again. Or maybe not. He’s maybe just the King of Pandora from here on out.
