James Cameron’s Avatar 2 doesn’t come out until December 2014 but the news is already starting to trickle out. It’s going to be a long four years.

But on which projects, exactly? Talking to the French magazine Le Film, Landau has given some indication of which pictures Cameron is planning to tackle next: his long awaited manga adaptation Battle Angle Alita, underwater romance The Dive and even a sequel to Avatar.

After the break, how Landau pitched the premise for that follow-up to this year’s most hyped movie.
