Avatar 4 and 5: James Cameron may not be direct sequels, here’s why

James Cameron, who directed Avatar: The Way of Water and is already working on its sequel Avatar 3, may not return for Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 as he plans to work on “something else.” In a new interview, the Titanic filmmaker said he may “hand over” the proposed sequels to another director if he doesn’t get into his schedule. Cameron, however, gave no indication of who might take over as director if he steps down, suggesting there are no plans to replace him at the moment.

Cameron told Empire: “The Avatar movies themselves are a bit consuming. I have other things that I’m developing that are exciting. I think ultimately, I don’t know if, after three or four, I’d like to pass on a baton to a director like that.”. Someone I trust to take responsibility, so I can do something else that interests me too. Maybe or not. I don’t know.”

The veteran director also revealed that even if Avatar 3 is a lock, the fate of its sequels will depend on “market forces”. Cameron added that he, regardless, hopes to do Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 because they are part of “a bigger story.”

While nothing is set in stone, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Cameron goes this route after Avatar 3. He worked with Robert Rodriguez to direct the Rosa Salazar-directed cyberpunk action Alita: Battle Angel. Cameron originally wanted to adapt it for the big screen but was tied up with Avatar: The Way of Water.

Meanwhile, Cameron is awaiting the release of Avatar: The Way of Water, which has garnered quite a bit of attention for its almost silent progress. The sequel to the 2009 sci-fi film Avatar stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, who played Jack Sully and Neytiri, respectively, from the first film. The likes of Stephen Lang, Dilip Rao and Matt Gerald are also returning in their respective avatar roles. Lang and Gerald make interesting appearances in Avatar: The Way of Water even though their characters died in the first film.

Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, Ona Chaplin, Vin Diesel, and CJ Jones are the latest additions to the Avatar universe.
