James Cameron Might Not Direct Sequels in Avatar 4 & 5, Heres Why

James Cameron Might Not Direct Sequels in Avatar 4 & 5, Heres Why ...

James Cameron, who has directed Avatar: The Way of Water and is already working on its sequel Avatar 3, may not return for Avatar 4 and Avatar 5, due to his desire to re-team them. Cameron did not give any indication on who would take over as director when he stepped down, which suggests that he may not have a replacement in mind right now.

The Avatar films as a whole are incredibly exhausting. Ive got a few other projects I'm working on that are also interesting. I'm hoping that someday, perhaps not, I'll give the baton to a director that I'm familiar with to take over. Or maybe not.

Cameron said he hopes to make Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 a part of a larger picture. While Avatar 3 is a certainty, the fate of its sequels will depend on market forces.

After Avatar 3, Cameron was initially interested in bringing Robert Rodriguez to direct the Rosa Salazar-led cyberpunk action film Alita: Battle Angel, but he was tied up with Avatar: The Way of Water.

Cameron is waiting for Avatar: The Way of Water to be released, which has received a fair amount of attention for its nearly-wordless teaser. Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana reprise their roles as Jake Sully and Neytiri from the first film, while Lang and Gerald continue to play interesting roles in the sequel to Avatar: The Way of Water.

The new members to the Avatar universe are Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell, Michelle Yeoh, Oona Chaplin, Vin Diesel, and CJ Jones.

Avatar: The Way of Water is available in India on December 16 in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Avatar 3, Avatar 4, and Avatar 5, are scheduled for December 2024, December 2026, and December 2028. Cameron may not return to direct Avatar 4 and Avatar 5.
