DHAKA: James Cameron has already started the process of filming the next instalments of 2009’s sci-fi epic ‘Avatar’.
The film maker has secured his two co-stars, Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington, for them to reprise their roles as ‘Neytiri’ and ‘Jake Sully’ in the next three films.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cameron was waiting for the actors to finalise their deals and will reunite with each other when shooting begins later this year.
Another cast member that will be reprising his role is Stephen Lang, the 61 year-old played the crazy marine ‘Colonel Miles Quaritch’, but died in the first film.
It has not yet been specified in how he will be returning to the sequel.
‘Jake Sully is a rare combination of passion, strength, street smarts and soul, which requires a lot from an actor,’ Cameron said in a press release, reports contactmusic.com.
