Make sure your rumor receptors are set to blind acceptance because word on the street has Arnold Schwarzenegger joining AVATAR 2 opposite Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Joel David Moore.
The plot of the sequel (which is one of three in the works) is being kept under wraps but Schwarzeneggar will supposedly play the bad guy. This is potentially wonderful news if you can remember back to say 1984, but not so great if you can only remember back to say 2-3 years ago. But I’m the guy who’s actually looking forward to “Escape Plan” and I believe the ‘Governater’ has at least one more great role left in him. It would be fitting if Cameron was the one to make that happen.
Riding side car to James Cameron is writer Josh Friedman (“The Sarah Connor Chronicles”). He’s working hard on the sequel which Cameron plans to direct. Producing will be Cameron (there’s that name again) and Jon Landau.
Schwarzenegger will appear soon in the aforementioned “Escape Plan” and he’s currently filming “The Expendables 3.” Beyond that he’ll star in the zombie (groooan, not a zombie groan, but a “oh my god just stop making zombie movies” groan) film “Maggie” and reportedly a role in the new “Terminator” movie that has Alan Taylor in talks to direct.
He is repped by CAA.
