'Avatar' Sequels To Let Sam Worthington Plod Through Underwater Performance


James Cameron's loves of the deep sea and motion-capture cat people will reportedly at last come together in a big blue puddle for the Avatar sequels, Deadline reports. Speaking at the 2013 NAB Technology Summit on Cinema yesterday, producer Jon Landau revealed Cameron will once again lean on technology innovation to make up for sort of bland storytelling, and will now "do performance capture in water." Apparently they couldn't do that before, but now they will do that--maybe with waterproof spandex or something. In truth, they don't actually know exactly how they'll do it yet, but are said to be "currently exploring technologies to allow for underwater capture of actors' performances." Their experiments have thus far drowned five test Worthingtons.
