Avatar has just started production on four sequels with all shooting back-to-back. Release dates have already been set, starting 18 December 2020, followed by 17 December 2021, 20 December 2024, and 19 December 2025.
You can only imagine the cost of such a big-budget film produced by James Cameron. How do the most expensive movies of all time sound? This is exactly what reports are saying that the shooting of the sequels will cost $1 billion. This claim was made by 21st Century Fox honcho Lachlan Murdoch.
If the $1 billion number is correct, divided between the four films at $250 million each, then it’s not an entirely inconceivable number, since Star Wars: The Force Awakens landed itself a $245 million budget.
