With Avatar becoming the highest grossing movie of all-time two years ago, you would think the filmmakers behind the sequel would be in a rush to milk the pig once again. Well think again. Bleeding Cool recently was invited to check out some footage from the upcoming Titanic 3D and had the opportunity to catch up with producer Jon Landau who stated that Avatar 2 won’t come out for another four years.
That’s two years later than a previous report which had the film being released in December 2014. This isn’t all that surprising, given that James Cameron took a 12-year break between Titanic and Avatar. Additionally, the second and third installment will be shot back-to-back so it was getting rather unlikely that it would happen since there is no hint that production is about to start this year. From a positive standpoint, fans should appreciate the fact that Avatar 3 is likely to be released within a year of the second installment.
In any case, no word yet from Fox so take this with a grain of salt.
