On Monday it was official that James Cameron’s “Avatar” was the highest grossing film of all time. The film has also been breaking other box-office records, winning Golden Globes, and is gearing up for the Oscars.
Now, it seems that the sequel maybe gearing up for pre-production, and is already hiring technical crew members for contracts.

Given the epic success of the first film I wouldn’t be surprised if this were true. Although, it was reported that Cameron hasn’t come up with a script yet, and its also rumored that his live-action Battle Angel Alita will be released next year.
I honestly hope he doesn’t do an Avatar sequel yet, and waits til after hes done Battle Angel. I’ve been waiting for Battle Angel for years, and I’m still of the mind that Avatar doesn’t need a sequel.
There is the possibility that Cameron won’t be directing Avatar 2. Although, Cameron will most likely direct the film because he thinks the story can continue, which was the reason he didn’t direct the third Terminator.
