The “Avatar” marathon has begun. The creator of the Terminator franchise James Cameron has just announced that he has begun production on the four anticipated sequels to the most successful film of all time: “Avatar”.
James Cameron made the announcement official today, on Facebook:
“Great to be working with the best team in the business! Avatar takes flight as we begin concurrent production on four sequels. The journey continues December 18, 2020, December 17, 2021, December 20, 2024 and December 19, 2025!”
James Cameron revealed a few months ago that once production started on the Avatar sequels, that Avatar would switch from being his “day job” to an all-life-consuming “24/7” for the next 8 years of his life. So it’s safe to assume that Cameron’s role as producer on Terminator 6 will be limited from here on out.
And considering James Cameron’s accessibility will be extremely diminished beginning today, he will almost certainly be sharing his T6 producing duties, as a co-producer at best. Cameron will still be involved with Skydance’s new Terminator film, but he will likely just be less “hands on” moving forward.
We’ll be back.
