Is James Cameron Filming 'Avatar 2' Underwater?

Is James Cameron Filming 'Avatar 2' Underwater?

As of now, 20th Century Fox hasn’t exactly come right out and said they’re making an Avatar 2. It’s been whispered about from time to time, and James Cameron has made it perfectly clear that he intends to make at least two sequels at some point, but we’re still waiting for some magic studio wizard to float down and present us with an official announcement (and a release date).

Meanwhile, while Fox decides how they intend to approach the Avatar sequels, James Cameron isn’t wasting any time getting back to work. No, he’s not exactly making another movie, though he is constantly shooting stuff in 3D – some of which he may even use for Avatar 2. According to The Daily Mail, Cameron plans to become only the third man in history to travel to the deepest point of the ocean, seven miles under the western Pacific at a place called the Mariana Trench.
 
Cameron commissioned a submarine that will be capable of traveling that far underwater, and, yes, he plans to shoot 3D footage the entire time in the hopes of possibly using some (or all) of it for the next Avatar movie. The director has gone on record before as saying that he wants to explore Pandora’s oceans in the follow-up to the highest grossing movie of all time, and what a better way to start than my exploring parts of our own oceans that haven’t been seen by practically anyone ever before?
 
Do you think Cameron is on the right track, or would you rather him not waste time exploring and just get on with making Avatar 2, like, tomorrow?
