Director of the movie who ventured further into rarefied territory at the worldwide box office during the weekend, surpassing the $2 billion mark, James Cameron appeared at the VESA ceremony on Sunday to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award and to briefly speak about the furure Avatar movie. Cameron said that he has yet to sign on for “Avatar 2″ but has made it realy clear that he wouldn’t give anyone else the chance to direct it.
“I wouldn’t do that for the second film” Cameron said. “It’d be premature to turn it over to somebody else right now. I think I’d have to use a film to train somebody to be able to take the reins, honestly. That’s how I see it.”
Spoilers: James Cameron went on to say that the sequel will not be called “Avatar 2″ (as we all expected) since the first film ended with Jake (Sam Worthington) become an actual Na’vi. ( this might be a mistake since avatar is already known among us all and a very large amount of money went into publicity, becoming a giant name who took control of the Box Office.) “Certainly I don’t want to call it Avatar 2,” he said. “He’s not an avatar anymore, is he? Maybe we’ll call it Na’vi.”..
