If the latest internet rumours are to be believed, James Cameron will be shooting three sequels to his record breaking visual epic, Avatar.

According to a showbiz 411 interview with Sigourney Weaver, she is down for Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 after she has finished shooting the TV show Political Animals.

How Sigourney Weaver’s Grace fits into the sequels remains to be seen and other returning cast members are yet to be announced.

Naturally there has been lots of uproar from the online community about how James Cameron should leave the space smurfs alone and focus on Battle Angel. There has also been concern about whether he is biting off more than he can chew with the Avatar universe.

Personally, I think if the likes of George Lucas and Peter Jackson can build a cinematic opus with the material they had, I see no reason why box office record breaker James Cameron can’t do the same.
