So much has been made in recent months about tentative 2015 releases "Star Wars: Episode VII," "Justice League" and "Marvel's The Avengers 2" that it's easy to forget there might be a sequel to "Avatar" coming in that year as well.
Speaking to reporters at the New Zealand premiere of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" in November of 2012, director James Cameron said the goal was to shoot "Avatar 2" sometime in 2013; Cameron previously stated that he had hoped to get "Avatar 2" in theaters by 2015 or later.
"I'm deep into it and I'm living in Pandora right now," Cameron told Play Goes Strong in a new interview. "There is that start up torque where you feel it's coming to you. Then you build up momentum. That's when it gets fun. The characters talk and it's writing itself. I'm almost there right now. It's building fast."
That's good news for those anxious to see another "Avatar" film; the 2009 blockbuster grossed over $2.7 billion worldwide, making it the highest grossing movie of all-time. For his part, Cameron has remained focused on the world of Pandora for the last four years.
"Last year, I basically completely disbanded my production company's development arm," Cameron told the New York Times in May of last year. "So I’m not interested in developing anything. I'm in the 'Avatar' business. Period. That's it. I'm making 'Avatar 2,' 'Avatar 3,' maybe 'Avatar 4,' and I'm not going to produce other people’s movies for them. I'm not interested in taking scripts."
That may be, but Cameron did acquire the rights to Taylor Stevens' "The Informationist" late last year. According to THR, Cameron could direct the film after he's done living in Pandora, which means it probably won't happen within the next five or more years.

Deep-sea explorer Brock Lovett has reached the most famous shipwreck of all - the Titanic. Emerging with a safe believed to contain a diamond called 'The Heart of the Ocean', he discovers the safe does not hold the diamond but a drawing of a beautiful woman wearing it. When Brock is later interviewed on TV, he shows the drawing to the cameras, and a 100-year-old woman named Rose Calvert living in Michigan recognizes the woman in the drawing - herself! On a visit to Brock's explorer ship over the wreck, Rose tells her story of the Titanic and its ill-fated voyage. Engaged to a would-be steel magnate, Caledon Hockley, she boards the Titanic's first-class suites with him & her mother in Southampton. Also boarding are Jack Dawson & his friend Fabrizio, after a lucky poker game wins them tickets in steerage. When Rose attempts suicide by jumping off the stern in 3rd class, Jack pulls her back onto the ship...and a bond is forged between them as Jack is invited by her into 1st-class the following day. Rose's mother & Cal Hockley try desperate measures to keep them apart. But that strategy goes out the window when the Titanic collides with an iceberg, and due to a design flaw begins to sink - despite being proclaimed 'unsinkable'. Now Rose & Jack must fight to stay alive, but is young Jack already doomed because of his lower status as a steerage passenger?
