James Cameron Working on Avatar Novel
AUGUST 10, 2010 - Film-maker James Cameron has told MTV that he is working on finishing his Avatar novel before getting started on the sequel to the blockbuster epic.
Deals for an Avatar sequel -- or two -- are being planned, he said, hinting that that the final two parts of the planned trilogy could be lumped together into a single production.
"We're actually talking about that. That's not a decision yet," he said. "That is something that makes a lot of sense, given the nature of these productions, because we can bank all the capture and then go back and do cameras over a period of time."
News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch had said that his Fox studio is eyeing a sequel and has held first talks with Cameron about financial and other details. (Agencies)
