Cameron's "Avatar 2 & 3" will tie him up until 2015!

It's nice to have job security while, in your spare time, you're producing/mentoring other 3D flicks on the side: http://www.deadline.com/2010/10/breaking-news-james-camerons-next-films-are-avatar-2-3/
Cameron, who had always viewed AVATAR as the creation of a new world and mythology, will begin work on the scripts early next year with an eye towards commencing production later in 2011. Cameron will decide if he will shoot the films back-to-back after he completes the scripts, but the release of the first, as yet untitled sequel, is targeted for December 2014, with the third film contemplated for a December 2015 release.

UPDATE: We just learned that James Cameron is telling Hollywood that Fox made a "huge" donation to his environmental green fund, and in return he committed to making the Avatar sequel and threequel his next films. That also caused him to withdraw from Sony Pictures' Cleopatra with Angelina Jolie, even though he'd told the studio that he'd always wanted to film the Queen Of The Nile's story.

Whatever that donation was (and it was significant-enough to make Cameron backtrack from directing the Sony movie) it'll be peanuts compared with what these two flicks will make for Fox. Money well spent. ;-)
