James Cameron will soon begin shooting Avatar 2 and 3. The return to Pandora according to The Hollywood Reporter, states that filmmaker James Cameron is setting up shop at MBS Media Campus in Manhattan Beach, CA and that Cameron’s company, Lightstorm Entertainment will most likely make the location their new base of operations for shooting and office space.
Avatar 2 and 3 will be shot back-to-back and will make use of the MBS’s enormous production stages. The Hollywood Reporter suggests that Cameron may be renting as much as a sixth of the lot’s 580,000 feet of soundstages and office space, likely combining his offices and soundstages into one, singular unit.
Marvel Studios recently used soundstages there to film the re-shooting of Asgardian portions of their upcoming Thor.
Avatar 2 is planned for December 2014 with a second sequel set to follow in December 2015.
