James Cameron has never been one to half-ass things. So if he really is only making Avatar movies (uh, plus Battle Angel Alita) from here on out, I suppose it makes sense that he’d dive right in by making three at once. The filmmaker has already indicated that he’s thinking of making three Avatar sequels instead of two as originally planned, and now star Sigourney Weaver has confirmed that not only will there be three more Avatars, they’re planning to shoot them back-to-back-to-back. Read her comments after the jump.

While some of her Friday Night Lights co-stars have made the leap into big-screen adventures, Connie Britton‘s still shining on the small screen. Fresh off of a single-season stint on FX’s American Horror Story, Britton has now signed on for ABC’s musical family soap Nashville. And yes, the “musical” part of the description indicates that we’ll be hearing the former Mrs. Coach Taylor sing.
R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) is set to direct the pilot from a script by Callie Khouri (Thelma & Louise), which centers around country star and married mom Rayna James (Britton). Unhappy with the weak sales of her latest record, her label forces Rayna to go on tour with a younger rising star (Hayden Panettiere). Eric Close, who guest-starred on Britton’s American Horror Story, will play Rayna’s husband. [Deadline]
After the jump, two leading ladies of sci-fi tackle television.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Here’s an international trailer for the thriller The Cold Light of Day, in which Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Immortals, Man of Steel) discovers that his father, played by Bruce Willis, is actually involved in international espionage. As we’ve discussed before, the film looks a bit like a more grown-up version of the story told in the Taylor Lautner vehicle Abduction. Hopefully it will fare a bit better overall. Check out the new trailer below. Read More »
In the coming weeks, James Cameron will likely be making the press rounds to talk about Titanic 3D and, at that time, hopefully we’ll get our first significant Avatar 2 update since last Fall. The director has reportedly been writing the film and its sequel, while simultaneously perfecting the 3D on his Best Picture winner. So there really hasn’t been much Avatar news to report. There was a rumor the films could be delayed and recently, news broke that the director would be relocating to New Zealand where the films will likely shoot. But that’s about it.
So instead we turn to the film’s stars, specifically one actress who is no stranger to sequel talk: Sigourney Weaver. She’s already suggested her deceased character will be back in the sequels and, in a new interview, hinted that Cameron needs a new submarine to go underwater for scenes in the follow-ups to the highest grossing movie of all time.

After a very unrevealing first teaser, we finally got a better look at Buried director Rodrigo Cortés‘ Red Lights when the full-length international trailer hit last week. Unfortunately, with all the dialogue dubbed over in Spanish and nary a subtitle in sight, it was difficult to get a sense of what was actually going on. Now an English-language version of the same trailer has just gone up, and while the film is still shrouded in plenty of mystery — it is a thriller, after all — the new video does a much better job of setting up the premise for the non-Spanish-speakers among us.
Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy star as psychologist Margaret Matheson and her assistant Tom Buckley, respectively, who study and debunk parascience and paranormal activity. They find their biggest challenge yet when a world-famous psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro) returns to the limelight after decades in retirement. Elizabeth Olsen and Toby Jones also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

People have been talking about Abduction a bit today, because of the tangentially-related news about Stretch Armstrong dumping Taylor Lautner and going to a new studio home at Relativity. Which, strangely, makes today a good one for the arrival of the trailer for another film in which a son discovers that his parents are connected to something secret and potentially violent.
This film is called The Cold Light of Day. It is a thriller directed by Mabrouk El Mechri (JCVD), in which Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Immortals, Man of Steel) is on vacation with his family, but returns to find them gone. Turns out his dad (Bruce Willis) is actually CIA, and Cavill’s character is caught in the middle of a violent information exchange driven in part by Sigourney Weaver. Check out the trailer below.
