Sigourney Weaver told an interviewer that
fading director James Cameron is filming 3 sequels to Avatar
at the same time. I have to ask why 3? In the first one, the mining company will return to the lush moon and nuke it from orbit (It's the only way to be sure) and then mine the Unobtainium without further local interference. If the plot goes in a different direction, Cameron will be a total sellout (to the degree that he is not already).
You know, with the way the Star Wars franchise went after a terrific sequel and the way the Alien Franchise went after Cameron's triumphant sequel (and the disappointment most fans had with its supposed revitalization in Prometheus
), I'm thinking perhaps good directors never should go back.
It's the only way to avoid the suck.
