Default Avatar sequels will start filming on April 15th

At last!

Meanwhile, James Cameron remain on course to begin production on his Avatar sequel trilogy this spring too, even though 20th Century Fox has formally delayed the project from its previous projected December 2017 release date (after Disney and Lucasfilm moved Star Wars: Episode VIII to that same month). Currently, it appears that Avatar 2 in particular will start filming around the same time that the cameras start rolling on the third Wolverine solo film and the next Alien movie alike.


Avatar 2, by comparison, isn’t expected to reach theaters until 2018 now, as further evidenced by its reported April 15th, 2016 filming start date – which, bear in mind, is when Cameron will start shooting all three Avatar sequels one right after the other, so the turnaround in post-production on Avatar 2 will take all the longer as a result. The latest update on the project confirms that Cameron is going to film Avatar 2 (and its sequels) in New Zealand, with a cast that is confirmed to include the returning Avatar players Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, and Sigourney Weaver. How some of these cast members’ characters return has yet to be revealed of course, since details on the script that Cameron co-wrote with Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) remain firmly under wraps.

Of course, by the time that Avatar 2 actually is ready to hit theaters, it will facing a very different sort of cinematic landscape than what its predecessor had to contend with (in terms of competition). That’s not to say we’d recommend betting against James Cameron at this stage in his career – but even by Cameron’s standards, he’s tasked himself and his collaborators with a rather daunting challenge on the Avatar sequels.

Here's the link.

I must say I'm rather lukewarm about the return of Stephen Lang. Not for his acting, but what are conceivable scenarios that his character returns that aren't ridiculous? Flashbacks?

Immediately followed by intense skepticism; I'm going to take that start date with about this many grains of salt:

I'll believe it when I see the Lightstorm logo in the theatre.

JC is such a perfectionist that he keeps delaying everything because he wants to get it just right. We're going on a decade here James! Get your act together! At the same time I understand, because if he put in less effort, it wouldn't be as good, but seriously. A decade.
(sigh) I miss my Ney-ney.
