It’s now been nearly three years since James Cameron’s Avatar opened in theaters and proceeded to relocate a significant fraction of the world’s money into James Cameron’s secret money vault deep within the Mariana Trench. While the director has spent the intervening years tinkering with the Avatar sequels and acting like some sort of crazy, billionaire version of Jacques Cousteau, his presence is about to be back in the public eye again thanks to Titanic hitting Blu-ray and Avatar finally getting a 3D Blu-ray release here in the States. As part of this latest Cameron media offensive, Avatar producer Jon Landau has revealed a few new details on the upcoming sequels and whether we’ll ever get 3D conversions for Aliens and Terminator 2.
With so much of Cameron’s current filmmaking wrapped up in the world of 3D, it’s hard not to wonder if the director’s earlier classics might eventually get the 3D treatment as well. Collider broached that topic during a new interview, and Landau was enthusiastic but noncommittal. “I think, if we get through the next two Avatars, Jim would love to,” said the producer. “I think Jim really feels that the 3D enhances the storytelling process, and I think both of those movies would be ideal candidates to do this with.”
