It's OFFICIALLY happening!
James Cameron announced today that his next project will be TWO sequels to his 3D smurf alien extravaganza, Avatar!
The Academy Award winning director plans to write the screenplays for Avatar 2 and 3 early next year, and hopefully begin production by the end of 2011. Avatar 2 is tentatively scheduled to be released in December of 2014, with Avatar 3 arriving the following year!
Inneresting! So he's taking the Pirates and Matrix route and shooting these bitches back-to-back!
