He wasn’t joking about the slew of Avatar sequels. Well, if he is still joking about the three Avatar sequels, James Cameron is remaining pretty committed to the joke. He’s announced the three writing teams that will take us back to the land of blue people and Sam Worthington again and again and again.
Cameron has seemed to eschew bigger writing names in favor of the likes of the teams that wrote Sarah Conner Chronicles (which he was involved in), Rise of the Planet of the Apes (which was just an awesome film), and Savages (which was a film so bad it angered me).
So he’s a bit all over the map there, but at the very least, it should make for some diversity come December 2016, December 2017, and December 2018.
