We reported just a few weeks back that James Cameron announced Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 will be his next movies, which left Cleopatra in a state of flux. Now the director says he stepped away from the project completely:
"I am not doing Cleopatra. That has been decided."
Our report from a few weeks ago indicated that James Cameron would start writing the scripts for Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 early next year, with production slated for late 2011. Avatar 2 would be released in December 2014 and Avatar 3 would arrive in theaters in December 2015.
