When the eventual Avatar sequel hits theaters, a third trip to Pandora won't be far behind, as director James Cameron is currently considering filming two sequels back-to-back.
"We're actually talking about that. That's not a decision yet," he told MTV News in an interview. "That is something that makes a lot of sense, given the nature of these productions, because we can bank all the [motion] capture and then go back and do cameras over a period of time."
Cameron said that the unique filmmaking process for Avatar lends itself to a back-to-back shooting schedule more than many other movies.
"The way these back-to-back productions fall apart is that you're trying to do two live-action films back to back, and you're working on it for a year and a half, shooting. Everyone is dead. It's not humanly possible," he said. "This type of film, it absolutely would work."
