James Cameron Shooting Three 'Avatar' Sequels Back-To-Back?

James Cameron’s Avatar remains the highest-grossing film in Hollywood history (though Joss Whedon’s The Avengers is catching up … slowly). Avatar sequels are inevitable. But how many sequels do you think Cameron’s ready to deliver?
 
According to Sigourney Weaver, Cameron could plan to shoot three Avatar movies back-to-back, giving fans Na’vi adventures in Avatar 2, 3 and 4. The actress revealed this bit of information to Showbiz411 while attending a party on behalf of USA Network’s Political Animals, which finds Weaver playing a Hilary Clinton-esque D.C. powerbroker. But the site asked her about her Avatar work, and the time commitment it will take to shoot three movie back-to-back.
 
"I just show up," the tight-lipped Weaver said. In other words, "In Jim we trust."
 
Cameron has gone on record in the past as saying he only plans to make Avatar movies for the rest of his career. And at 57, he easily could spend the next 10 years working on Avatar films and retire, content, at 67. Then again, Cameron and every member of his extended family could retire on Titanic royalties. He never needs to work another day in his life, so we should be thrilled that he still has three Avatar stories in his creative tank. 
 
What do you think? Do you want three more adventures in Pandora? Cameron has hinted he’d like to explore new worlds with each new Avatar film, possibly going underwater for part two (which had a 2014 release date but since has been pushed back to 2015, at the earliest). Where would you like to see this franchise go? And how long are you willing to wait for three Avatar sequels to reach thetaers?
 
While you wait, plan a trip to the strangest Avatar-inspired nightclub we’ve ever seen. It’s called Avastar, and it’s located in South Africa. The club launched on June 1 (with an appearance by special guest David Hasselhoff!), so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by … and let us know how it goes.
