However, producer John Landau recently conceded that the sequel to James Cameron's science fiction epic, Avatar, the highest grossing film of all time, is still four years away.

A full seven years after the first film, Avatar 2 will hit theaters in 2016. The good news is that since Avatar 3 will be filmed at the same time, its release won't be as staggered. Landau also indicated that the film would be filmed high frame rate and all signs point to the technology behind the sequel being significantly more advanced.
