James Cameron has described the upcoming Avatar sequel as “bitchin’.”
Cameron is planning three sequels to the 2009 original, which went on to gross over $2 billion at the global box office by the end of its theatrical run, and there has been so much talk about future movies ever since that success.
While not giving too much away about what audiences can expect from the sequel, Cameron has hinted that we are going to be shocked by the future movies.
Speaking to Empire magazine, Cameron said: “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will s**t yourself with your mouth wide open.”
Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are set to reprise the role of Jake Sully and Na’vi, while Sigourney Weaver is also set to return to the franchise in a different role.
There has been rumours that Cameron was going to shoot the new movie in a 60 frames per second format, but the director has revealed he will instead shoot in 48 frames per second.
Cameron continued: “My thinking at the time was that 60 [FPS] might be a better segue to the video market, I'll be plugging into a system that's a little more mature, so it makes sense for me to do 48 frames at this point."
Cameron wrote and directed the original movie and has been working on the screenplays for his future movies all year. Shooting is expected to get underway next year, and the film looks set to hit the big screen in 2016.
