Reuniting with James Cameron...
Latino Review reports that Arnold Schwarzenegger is rumored to play the villain in Avatar 2. This would reunite him with James Cameron after the two worked on the first two Terminator films and True Lies.
There will be three sequels to the 2009 film. Josh Friedman will write Avatar 2, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver will write Avatar 3 and Shane Salerno will write Avatar 4. Production begins in 2014 and the first sequel will be released in December 2016, followed by releases in December 2017 and 2018.
The first film ended with Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) permanently moving his consciousness into his Na'vi avatar and living with PRincess Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) after they defeated the human colonizers.
James Cameron previously said to MTV News: "It would be a continuation of their story and I expect that those nasty humans didn't go away forever: ‘Oh, well that didn't work!'"
Schwarzenegger is said to be up for the role of a "bad guy human general".
Schwarzenegger previously hinted he may be working with Cameron again. He told MTV News earlier this year: "Movie-wise, he's tied up with his next two movies, but hopefully, there's something down the line when he's finished with that. I always look forward to working with him because Cameron is a very talented director."
