vin diesel avatar

It looks like Vin Diesel just blue himself. Maybe. The Fast and Furious actor may have jumped the gun by showing himself on the set of the Avatar sequels with director James Cameron, where the pair of them coyly suggested that Diesel may be joining the cast of the highly anticipated sci-fi films. Or perhaps Diesel is just showing off that he’s on the Avatar set. Let’s dig in to this and figure it out.

dean deblois and how to train your draon
A couple of weeks back, I was able to visit the DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale California, an oasis hidden amongst the Los Angeles concrete. There, I had a chance to visit Dean DeBlois‘ new office and talk to the filmmaker about How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. As you may know, DeBlois wrote and directed the modern Disney Animation classic Lilo & Stitch with Chris Sanders, before moving to DreamWorks to direct all three installments of the now completed How to Train Your Dragon trilogy.

In our interview, we talk about the evolution of the story from the beginning of the trilogy to the conclusion, comparisons to Star Wars, the trouble with sequels, an animation franchise where the characters physically grow and age, the original idea for the second movie that was abandoned, how he feels about making audiences cry, what it was like to work with Guillermo Del Toro and Drew Struzan, his hopes to make a live-action film next, a possible Dragons theme park ride, and the challenge of making a mythical based franchise in the age of Avatar.

Avatar Cast Chris Evans Channing tatum

Avatar stars the somewhat bland Sam Worthington as Jake Sully. But at one point, the role almost went to one of two far more charismatic actors. According to Mr. Avatar himself, James Cameron, both Chris Evans and Channing Tatum came very close to landing the lead role, but Worthington ultimately won the filmmaker over. The rest is history.

3d movie box office

avatar sequels news

James Cameron is hellbent on making Avatar sequels until the sun burns out in the sky, and day by day, more info on the films arrives. Last year, we learned what the possible titles of the films would be, and the titles…were a bit weird. But as it turns out, they are indeed real – for now, at least. On top of that, it’s recently been revealed that cast member Kate Winslet held her breath underwater for a very long time, and that live-action filming on the sequels picks up this spring.

avatar sequels cast edie falco

The cast of the Avatar sequels just got a major upgrade. Edie Falco, of The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie fame, will head to Pandora as new character General Ardmore. Falco is a phenomenal actress, and her presence in James Cameron‘s CGI-enhanced world is surely welcomed. It’s not clear which of the sequels Falco will be appearing in – both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 have wrapped filming with the main cast, and while Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 are both greenlit, neither have begun filming yet, as Cameron and company are waiting to see if 2 and 3 will make a splash at the box office.
