The 2009 blockbuster Avatar's sequel is reportedly all set to release in 2018 with production starting next year. The revelation came from actor Stephen Lang who played Colonel Miles Quaritch in the epic science fiction film directed by James Cameron.
"As the New Year turns, we start to shoot for the Avatar sequels, 'Avatar 2'," actor Stephen Lang has revealed. "I think that the whole process of making the films and opening the films will go to about 2023," he said about the three part Avator movies, while speaking at a panel at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago.
The actor, whose new movie Don't Breathe is about to release, is rumored to lead Avatar 2. The 68 year old actor who played the negative role where he despised the Pandora inhabitants was presumed dead when he took two huge Na'vi arrows through his chest but he himself later revealed that the character Colonel Miles Quaritch is going to make a comeback.
"His character will evolve into really unexpected places across the arc of our new three-film saga," Cameron revealed to Deadline earlier and also confirmed the plans for four sequels.
According to reports, Lang will take over as the lead from Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) after the latter two were captured by the enemies.
GamenGuide reports that Miles Quaritch will turn savior for Sully and Neytiri. The sequel was expected on 2014 but was pushed back to 2016. Now the fans hope that the film actually lands up on 2018 as their excitement level is increasing day by day.
