'Avatar' Sequel Won't Be Ready for 2018, James Cameron Says

If you were looking forward to the next movie in the Avatar franchise next year, you’re going to have to wait longer.

Director James Cameron has revealed that the sequel will not be ready for a 2018 release.

“Well, 2018 is not happening,” he told The Toronto Star. “We haven’t announced a firm release date.”

Cameron is planning four more Avatar movies and all of the scripts have been completed and casting is in place for most of the roles.

“What people have to understand is that this is a cadence of releases. So, we’re not making Avatar 2, we’re making Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5. It’s an epic undertaking. It’s not unlike building the Three Gorges dam,” he added.

Avatar was released in 2009 and it currently holds the record for the highest grossing movie of all time worldwide with a $2.788 billion gross.

'Titanic' Director James Cameron Remembers Bill Paxton: 'I Will Profoundly Miss Him'

Titanic director James Cameron is honoring the life of his longtime friend Bill Paxton.

In a touching statement, the director remembered Bill, who he worked with on many films including Titanic, Aliens, True Lies and The Terminator.

“I’ve been reeling from this for the past half hour, trying to wrap my mind and heart around it. Bill leaves such a void. He and I were close friends for 36 years, since we met on the set of a Roger Corman ultra-low budget movie,” James told Vanity Fair.

He continued, “It was a friendship of laughter, adventure, love of cinema, and mutual respect. Bill wrote beautiful heartfelt and thoughtful letters, an anachronism in this age of digital shorthand. He took good care of his relationships with people, always caring and present for others. He was a good man, a great actor, and a creative dynamo…The world is a lesser place for his passing, and I will profoundly miss him.”

James Cameron Defends 'Titanic' Ending, Slams 'Mythbusters' Theory That Jack Could Have Lived

James Cameron is setting the record straight on why Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character Jack had to die at the end of Titanic and why the Mythbusters theory that he could have survived is not valid.

Lots of people have questioned why Jack did not try harder to stay afloat on the board with Rose (Kate Winslet) instead of letting her survive alone.

“Look, it’s very, very simple: you read page 147 of the script and it says, ‘Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive.’ It’s that simple. You can do all the post-analysis you want,” James told The Daily Beast in a new interview.

James Cameron Isn't Pleased With The 'Alien' Franchise

James Cameron has a few thoughts about Ridley Scott‘s upcoming installment of the Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant.

The 62-year-old filmmaker, who directed Aliens in 1986, explained he wasn’t sure if continuing the series was a good idea.

“The franchise has kind of wandered all over the map. I don’t think it’s worked out terribly well. I think we’ve moved on beyond it. It’s like, okay, we’ve got it, we’ve got the whole Freudian biomechanoid meme. I’ve seen it in 100 horror films since…But is there any validity to doing another one now? I don’t know. Maybe,” he told THR.

James made sure to say that he is a huge fan of Ridley and is interested in seeing what happens with the film.

Alien: Covenant is set to hit theaters on May 19th.
