James Cameron Says The ‘Avatar’ Sequels Will Make You ‘Sh-t Yourself’
While James Cameron continues hammering away at scripts for the second, third and fourth installments in the “Avatar” film series, the director set a delicate moment aside to reveal a handful of tiny details about the future adventures of Neytiri and Jake Scully.
“I can tell you one thing about them. They’re gonna be b–hin’,” Cameron told the Empire magazine. “You will sh-t yourself with your mouth wide open.”
OK, someone’s been watching too much “Dumb & Dumber.”
The highly anticipated sequels to the Academy Award-winning 2009 epic haven’t begun production yet, but perhaps that has something to do with Cameron’s lengthly scripting process. The films have been divided and thrust into the hands of two capable teams of writers, which include Rick Jaffa (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), Amanda Silver (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”), Josh Friedman (“The Black Dahlia”) and Shane Salerno (“Armageddon”).
“I think we met for seven months and we whiteboarded out every scene in every film together, and I didn’t assign each writer which film they were going to work on until the last day,” Cameron said. “I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every time we were talking about the other movie.”
Clever, this one.
