Don't be surprised to see some new characters in the Avatar Sequels.... Now that James Cameron is doing business with China, you may see a Chinese Na’vi pop up in Avatar 2 and 3.
In August, the Cameron/Pace Group, announced CPG China, a joint venture with the state-owned Tianjin North Film Group and Tianjin Hi-Tech Holding Group to provide camera systems and other 3D production services in the northern port city of Tianjin. Director James Cameron says that there are plenty of reasons to do some of the work on the films in China, saying...
“Within five years, China could easily be as big a gross-revenue market for film as North America, and there are very specific economic incentives for having both Chinese content and Chinese co-production. We are already funded on Avatar 2 and 3, but if we qualify as a co-production, there might be some incentives in the percentage of revenue we can take out of China....We are running the numbers to see if that makes sense.”
The director says he may recruit Chinese actors to work in the movies...
“For Avatar, we can certainly use Chinese actors as performance capture actors because any accent issues will hide within the Na’vi accent... So we can have Chinese Na’vi; [and in the live-action sequences] we can also have Chinese actors who speak English in the film. We are projecting a future in Avatar, and if you project that future out, it is logical that there would be a number of Chinese amongst the contingent on Pandora.”
Cameron still plans to shoot the performance-capture work on Avatar 2 and 3 in Los Angeles and liveaction photography in Wellington, New Zealand. Filming gets under way in 2013. Check out these deleted scenes from the original Avatar...
