James Cameron, known for his excellent sequels, isn't quite done yet. Will Avatar: The Way of Water follow the trend of his previous films such as Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgement Day?

James Cameron returns to Avatar after more than a decade for his next highly-anticipated sequel. Avatar: The Way of Water is a direct follow-up to the original 2009 blockbuster, but the upcoming movie is just the beginning.

The Way of Water was written by Cameron, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver, who are also known for their work on Jurassic World, the latest Planet of the Apes trilogy, and the upcoming Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.

We still don't know what Cameron has planned for Avatar 3, but he's now discussing the fourth film, which sounds like it could be a pretty mind-blowing experience. 

“I can’t tell you the details, but all I can say is that when I turned in the script for 2, the studio gave me three pages of notes. And when I turned in the script for 3, they gave me a page of notes, so I was getting better. When I turned in the script for 4, the studio executive, and creative executive over the films wrote me an email that said, ‘Holy f!#k.’ And I said, ‘Well, where are the notes?’ And she said, ‘Those are the notes.’ Because it kind of goes nuts in a good way, right?”

Cameron wrote all the scripts for his future films before starting production on The Way of Water, and revealed that he took influence from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy. 

“My model was what Peter Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings, which was a crazy bet in its time. And really hats off to that, that they took that chance to launch on all three of those films. But he had the books mapped out, so he could always show the actors what they needed to know about their character arc. So I felt I had to do the same thing. I had to play this as if the books already existed. So the only way for us to do that was to write all the scripts and let the actors read all the scripts and see where their characters were going and what it all meant. Not that that’s actable at the moment, but I think it’s something that the actors could work into their preparation for their characters.”

Avatar: The Way of Water will open on December 16th.

@Comicmoviejunki - no u
TheLobster - 12/8/2022, 7:53 PM
@Comicmoviejunki - I’m with you - first one sucked ass and lacked any originality in the story. I also laugh at a lot of the performances/dialogue ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

"Please come see Avatar 2 because the fourth one is really good, a studio executive told me so"

James Cameron doesn't know how to do anything other than toot his own horn.

"James Cameron returns to Avatar after 31 years"

What am I missing here?
Matador - 12/8/2022, 9:34 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - He was cryogenically frozen

As much as I love Avatar, imagine the James Cameron movies we could've gotten if he wasn't so fixated on the franchise.
Fares - 12/8/2022, 4:11 PM
Well, if it ain't obvious, James Cameron is taking the Isekai fantasy to its logical conclusion with Avatar 4. That's right, full-on blue alien hentai.
Will44482 - 12/8/2022, 4:11 PM
James Cameron has an even bigger and more annoying ego than the Rock
Dotanuki - 12/8/2022, 4:52 PM
@Will44482 - But Cameron can talk the talk bc he walks the walk. Big difference.
HeavyMetal4Life - 12/8/2022, 6:06 PM
@Dotanuki - preach. One of the greatest directors who has made some of the greatest films ever, period.
Dotanuki - 12/8/2022, 6:11 PM
@HeavyMetal4Life - Record setting blockbusters and high critical acclaim. And he’s a director so it’s even more impressive bc he’s got his finger in all the pies (casting, script, etc.).
mumenrider - 12/8/2022, 4:15 PM
Maybe that’s not good feedback?
Twenty23Three - 12/8/2022, 4:17 PM
Well I definitely believe this, doesn’t seem like total BS at all

“Nuts in a good way” is what I try to convince myself every time I see my balls.
bkmeijer1 - 12/8/2022, 4:30 PM
@MosquitoFarmer - if you got some weird lumps on them, I suggest going to a doctor. Testicle cancer is no fun, and more common then you think.
GhostDog - 12/8/2022, 4:19 PM
“Holy [frick]” …he said after thinking about the near billion dollar budget this may require and more committed years of having to deal with Cameron being a mad tyrant
MosquitoFarmer - 12/8/2022, 5:05 PM
@GhostDog - After reading the script of the reported 5th movie, I bet they’ll say, “Holy f*ck! Enough please, for the love of god!”
defenderofthefaith - 12/8/2022, 4:21 PM
They don't know how well Avatar 2 will do and they are planning a 4th? If it does not do well do we still get a 4th one?
Cap1 - 12/8/2022, 4:21 PM
@defenderofthefaith - third is a guarantee I'm sure since productions finished, fourth isn't yet
SheepishOne - 12/8/2022, 4:28 PM
Really, really looking forward to Way of Water. The first one was a lot of fun.
bkmeijer1 - 12/8/2022, 4:29 PM
If he tried to copy Jackson's Lord of the Rings, I hope Cameron manages to get me as invested in his characters as I was in the Fellowship.

Sure Avatar will be epic (visually), but I wanna cheer for it's main characters like I did when Aragorn was crowned king and told the hobbits ''you bow to no one''.
Fogs - 12/8/2022, 4:42 PM
Eh. Not interested tbh.

Avatar 2 wil need to be the best thing ever to get me minimally invested after the boring first film. I just don't see a franchise out of it yet.
Cap1 - 12/8/2022, 4:55 PM
@Fogs - surely all it needs to be to get u minimally invested is minimally investing, no?
Fogs - 12/8/2022, 4:57 PM
@Cap1 - Ha!
AnthonyVonGeek - 12/8/2022, 4:59 PM
Off topic but….
What’s with Jennifer Lawrence claiming that she was the first female action star ever? Variety deleted the tweet cause people started to remind them of Sarah Conner, Ripley, the Bride from Kill Bill, Lara Croft, Electra, all the Resident Evil movies, all the Pam Grier movies and many many more. Heck even Helen Holmes was a female action star in black and white movies in the early 1900s….
But sure Jennifer Lawrence was the first.
It’s like we’re entering Idiocracy.
Feralwookiee - 12/8/2022, 6:35 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - She's literally a high school dropout, so I wouldn't be surprised by her lack of basic knowledge.

NateBest - 12/9/2022, 1:41 PM
@marvel72 - Yeah, talk about not knowing what they're talking about... I REALLY hope she was misquoted because that comment is flat out stupid.
ReverseFlasher - 12/8/2022, 5:00 PM
Yeahhhh, Cameron “wrote” the scripts …. By hiring multiple rooms of writers to break story for him.
