James Cameron to Quarantine for Two Weeks Before Resuming 'Avatar' Production

James Cameron to Quarantine for Two Weeks Before Resuming 'Avatar' Production

James Cameron is back in New Zealand, but he won’t be back on set of the Avatar sequel just yet.

Producer Jon Landau revealed on Tuesday (June 2) that he and the 65-year-old director will be going under quarantine for the next 14 days after arriving in New Zealand after a 13-hour direct flight.

“Our 14-day government supervised self-isolation now begins,” Jon wrote along with a photo of him and James wearing face shields and masks.

It was announced late last month that production for the new Avatar movie would resume in early June since New Zealand had approved new health and safety production protocols.

New Zealand has been praised for its handling of the pandemic, with only 1,504 reported cases and 22 deaths. The country has a population of around 4.8 million.

The next Avatar installment is scheduled for a December 2021 release. Three more sequels are expected to follow in 2023, 2025 and 2027.
