'Avatar' Actress Says Sequels Filming Back-To-Back in 2014

Zoe Saldana can proudly claim to be part of some massive movie franchises. She’s about to play Uhura for the second time in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness. She recently signed up to co-star in Marvel’s The Guardians of the Galaxy. And now she’s setting the stage for not one but two Avatar movies, which should begin shooting in 2014.
At least, that’s what the actress said on “The Jonathan Ross Show” (via Digital Spy). Saldana even suggested that James Cameron would film Avatar 2 and 3 back-to-back.
“Because if we just do two and then wait, I'll probably be 45 or 50 by the time we get to part three. It takes a long time, it's a very hard process.”
Of course, Cameron has been teasing these movies for a long time now. Avatar came out in 2009 … back when Sam Worthington was still a movie star. If Cameron starts filming the next Avatar story in 2014, will we see it in theaters before 2016? Could he make a Christmas Day, 2015 release date? As Saldana says, these movie take time.
But if the cast is discussing a shoot schedule, that might mean Cameron has cracked the scripts for parts two and three, as well as the technology needed to complete the vision he has for his return to Pandora.
Here’s the trailer for Cameron’s original Avatar, just to refresh your memory!
