Exclamation MTV interview with JC about Avatar novel and sequel

James Cameron on the reported Avatar novel and whether he'll shoot the proposed two sequels back-to-back...


Quote:
We're still working on deals [for 'Avatar 2']," Cameron told MTV News. "We don't start the movie until we get the deals worked out
Quote:
Fair enough. But what about the rumored sequel "scriptment"? "I'm making notes. I'm not sitting idle," Cameron said. "But really, what I'm working on primarily is the novel. I never had a chance to get the novel done while we were making the movie, and I always intended to. I didn't want to do a cheesy novelization, where some hack comes in and kind of makes sh-- up. I wanted to do something that was a legitimate novel that was inside the characters' heads and didn't have the wrong culture stuff, the wrong language stuff, all that."
Quote:
Cameron went on to say that the novel will serve as a "bible" for other writers to come in and riff on for their own "Avatar"-based stories.
Quote:
"I don't mind opening the universe, but I just don't want that to happen until I've got more meat on the bones," he said, adding that he'd like to fill in some of the specific details about the company, what's happening on Earth and Grace and Jake's backstories. "That all needs to be filled in before other writers can come in and run with it."
Quote:
Regarding his plans and discussions about two proposed sequels, we asked if he'll shoot them back-to-back. "We're actually talking about that. That's not a decision yet," Cameron revealed. "That is something that makes a lot of sense, given the nature of these productions, because we can bank all the [motion] capture and then go back and do cameras over a period of time."

Do want the book... But I really do not want other people writing stuff within Avatar
Well, it depends... if it's well done and within the spirit of avatar I won't mind... but there's a risk

As for the sequels, I really hope so... would be epic if they did

I'm glad Cameron will be overseeing the novel himself, which will help to keep everything canon to the Avatar universe. Definitely looks like it would be worth a read.

I would totally read the novel, and I never read haha.
He also should shoot back-to-back, like Pirates of the Carribean was filmed.

I wonder if the novel has the Movie story or something different?


EDIT: Sorry I don't know if it's mentioned in the video... I'm in a bus in the middle of nowhere without 3G connection

It's a prequel, I'm hoping it's based around Grace
