In line with the more-is-more Avatar mentality that's covered a man's body in cerulean ink, James Cameron is now extending his original trilogy plans into a four-film Avatar series.
The news was first dropped off-handedly in a year-old Sigourney Weaver profile, but it's just today being confirmed with a schedule and the hiring of writers to help Sam Worthington explore his new body.
Aptly, Cameron has put together a writing team that knows, above all else, how to write for a bunch of CGI shit. One sequel will reportedly be written by War of the Worlds writer Josh Friedman; another by the team of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, writers of Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the coming Jurassic Park sequel; and the last by Shane Salerno, who worked on Cameron's scrapped Fantastic Voyage after earning credits on Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem and Armageddon.
The films will be shot concurrently next year, with the first arriving December 2016 and the other two arriving the following years. By then, hopefully our nation will be open-minded enough that Cameron can finally just marry an Avatar and move on.
