Filmmaker James Cameron has said pre-production for his upcoming Avatar sequels isn’t as smooth as it looks.

The director told author Marianne Williamson that he almost fired his Avatar writers’ room suite, which offers new ideas for upcoming films, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“When I sat down to write the sequels, I knew there would be three at the time, and eventually it turned into four,” said James Cameron.

James Cameron added: “I got a group of writers together and said, ‘I don’t want to hear new ideas from anyone or anything from anyone until we’ve spent some time. figure out what worked on the first movie, what’s connected and why. work.”

The writers apparently still didn’t get it at first, and Cameron had to threaten to let them go, which ultimately worked.

“They kept wanting to talk about the new stories. I said, “We’re not doing that yet.” Eventually I had to threaten to fire them all because they were doing what writers do, which is trying to create new stories. I said, “We have to understand what the bond was and protect it, protect that embers and that flame,” “he said.

The creative difference did not delay production.

James Cameron was also optimistic that Avatar 2 is still on track for a December 17 release this year despite the Covid pandemic.
