James Cameron plans to make two further instalments to the 'Avatar' franchise.
The award-winning filmmaker – who has just released 'Avatar', his first movie in 12 years –plans to turn the alien love story into a trilogy, but hasn’t started work yet.
He said: "I have a trilogy-scaled arc of story right now, but I haven't really put any serious work into writing a script".
James said he hopes the next two films will take a little less time to make however, because 'Avatar' was in production for four years.
He said: "My next goal is to refine the technique, make it easier so it doesn't take as long. We were doing a lot of pioneering work on 'Avatar.' It wouldn't have taken as long if we already knew exactly how to do it."
The new movie - starring Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana – used revolutionary production techniques and CGI technology, which is why the process took so long.
He told MTV: "Part of what we set out to do is create a world and create these characters. From the time we capture and finish the capture, it's literally nine to 10 months to get the CG characters working, to get their facial musculature working".
