James Cameron Says 'Avatar 4' "Goes Nuts" and Studio Executive Said “Holy F*ck” After Reading Script

He also spoke about getting notes from the studio for 'The Way of Water' and 'Avatar 3.'

James Cameron is a director who knows how to do sequels right. Cameron has directed some of the best sequels ever made, sequels that many would say surpassed the original film, like 1986’s Aliens and 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Cameron is back with a sequel for the first time in thirty-one years with Avatar: The Way of Water, the sequel to his 2009 blockbuster, Avatar.

But The Way of Water is just the beginning of Cameron’s planned sequels, with a third film coming in 2024, followed by a fourth in 2026.

Collider’s Perri Nemiroff recently spoke with Cameron about his writing process, having all the screenplays for the future films written before going into production on The Way of Water, and how the fourth Avatar might be the most bonkers film in the series.

Cameron said of his plan to write all the films before starting production on The Way of Water:

Avatar: The Way of Water comes to theaters on December 16.
