James Cameron has been chatting about the 11 year gap between Avatar and Avatar 2, and why he's not too worried...
By the time Avatar 2 finally arrives in cinemas at the end of 2020, it'll be 11 years since the release of the original film. A film that, of course, went on to become the biggest of all time at the box office. But one that's still take its time to get its follow-up.
Production starts on the sequels – and there are four of them planned, remember – this summer, and writer/director James Cameron has been addressing the sizeable gap between the first two movies.
Turns out he’s not worried. "It was a seven year gap between The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, seven year gap between Alien and Aliens", he reminded CNN.
"It’s going to be obviously more like a ten year gap between Avatar and Avatar 2."
