James Cameron confirms releases for Avatar 2, 3 and 4

And announces a whole host of new co-writers

We recently learned that James Cameron had hired Josh Friedman to help work on the script for Avatar 2 , an announcement that turned out to only be a fraction of the story, with Cameron now announcing new plans for Avatar 3 and 4 !

It turns out that Cameron has enlisted a whole new batch of screenwriters to assist him with the screenplays for the sequels, which will stretch to include a fourth film.

Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have now been brought on board alongside Shane Salerno to work on Avatar 3 and 4 , the latter of which had previously been suggested to be a prequel.

“Building upon the world we created with Avatar has been a rare and incredibly rewarding experience," said Cameron.

"In writing the new films, I’ve come to realise that Avatar ’s world, story and characters have become even richer than I anticipated. It became apparent that two films would not be enough to capture everything I wanted to put on screen."

"And to help me continue to expand this universe, I’m pleased to bring aboard Amanda, Rick, Shane and Josh - all writers I’ve long admired -­ to join me in completing the films' screenplays."

Avatar 2 is now expected to arrive in December 2016, with Avatar 3 coming a year later, and a fourth film the year after that.
