Avatar Sequels Set for Huge Budget and Will Comment on State of the World

Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos discussed with Variety the challenges that he is facing with the production of Avatar 2.

Collider reported that the three sequels will cost in the region of a cool $1 billion which equates to well over $300 million per movie.

This would make the three upcoming sequels the most expensive in the history of Hollywood.

Gianopulos told Variety:

“We know it’s not going to be cheap.  We know it’s not going to be without new discoveries and new challenges in the process of producing something that is so beyond the normal form of filmmaking and technology, but what could be more exciting than that.”

Variety also got some more information from director James Cameron who insists that the money being spent will be put into good use and the films will be given the time and dedication required to achieve spectacular results.

Cameron told Variety:

“There’s nothing I need to say as an artist about the state of the world and human affairs that I can’t do through the lens of the ‘Avatar’ universe.  We’ve had a couple of years to think through the story arc of the next three films, and every day that goes by, I believe in the stories I’m telling more and more.  We’re not coming out of the block fast to capitalize on the last film.”
