Avatar 2 star Sam Worthington has revealed plot details for the upcoming James Cameron sequel.
Actor Sam Worthington (Clash of the Titans, Hacksaw Ridge) has talked to We Got This Covered about filming the upcoming Avatar 2 (as well as 3, 4 and 5), revealing that it will find Jake Sully years down the road from the 2009 original and focus on his offspring.
“They’re going to be shooting concurrently,” said Worthington. “The plan is to have some time in between, I think, but these things are always ambiguous until they start. We’re still set to start in the summer, though. James needed time to perfect the scripts. Whenever he says jump I go because he’s the man. I’ve read all the scripts, they’re great. This is going to be Jake eight years later, and he’s got a family now. This film is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen. The world is bigger than the first one, but essentially, it’s a movie about family. Jake will still have that essence of a kid seeing the world for the first time, but he’s been living in the world for a while now, so what’s this world he’s seeing now for the first time? The film will explore that within this family dynamic.”
In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, director James Cameron confirmed his plan to make Avatar 2, Avatar 3, Avatar 4, and Avatar 5 alongside each other. He also confirmed the Avatar sequels scripts are in place and the actors will be assembling later this year to begin the motion-capture part of production.
“The thing is, my focus isn’t on Avatar 2. My focus is on Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5 equally. That’s exactly how I’m approaching it. They’ve all been developed equally. I’ve just finished the script to Avatar 5. I’m now starting the process of active prep. I’ll be working with the actors in the capture volume in August, so I’m booked in production every day between now and then. Our volume is up and running, and everything is designed, and so we’re going full-guns right now. I feel like I’ve been let out of jail, because I’ve been in the writing cave for the last two years. I’m actually enjoying life. I don’t enjoy writing. I wouldn’t wish writing on a dog.”
Apart from Worthington, Slash Film reported that Stephen Lang also dished out some details on "Avatar 2". Lang was confirmed to reprise his epic role of Colonel Miles Quaritch. He exposed that the whole realistic process of the sequels in making the films and opening the films. "As the New Year turns, we start to shoot for the Avatar sequels. I think that the whole process of making the films and opening the films will go to about 2023," Lang stated.
Avatar 2 is still set for release in December 2018. Avatar 5 is due at the end of 2023. James Cameron and his team are going to be busy…
