James Cameron May Not Want To Direct Future Avatar Movies

July 5, 2022 | Posted by Ben Kerin

During a recent interview with Empire, James Cameron admits that the Avatar films are time-consuming and he may not direct Avatar 4 & 5 opting to work on something else. Here is what he had to say:

On Avatar films being time-consuming: “The Avatar films themselves are kind of all-consuming. I’ve got some other things I’m developing as well that are exciting. I think eventually over time – I don’t know if that’s after three or after four – I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in. Or maybe not. I don’t know.”

On the future Avatar films: “Everything I need to say about family, about sustainability, about climate, about the natural world, the themes that are important to me in real life and in my cinematic life, I can say on this canvas. I got more excited as I went along. Movie four is a corker. It’s a motherfucker. I actually hope I get to make it. But it depends on market forces. Three is in the can so it’s coming out regardless. I really hope that we get to make four and five because it’s one big story, ultimately.”
