James Cameron says he might not direct 'Avatar' 4 and 5. Here is why

'I’ve got some other things I’m developing as well that are exciting,' James Cameron told Empire

'Avatar: The Way of Water,' the first sequel to James Cameron's science-fiction epic 'Avatar' is all set to release worldwide in December and fans are eagerly waiting to see what the director has in store for them. However, Cameron who initially shared his plan to direct a total of five 'Avatar' movies himself has now stated that it may not happen after all.

In an interview with Empire, James Cameron said that the 'Avatar' films are 'kind of all-consuming' and he would like to pass the baton to a director who he can trust to take over. He added that he wishes to do some other stuff that he's interested in.

'I’ve got some other things I’m developing as well that are exciting. I think eventually over time – I don’t know if that’s after three or after four – I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in. Or maybe not. I don’t know,' he informed Empire.

Earlier, Cameron had let Robert Rodriguez direct the 2019 film 'Alita: Battle Angel.'

The filmmaker said that the fourth installment of 'Avatar' would depend on market forces and he hopes that he gets to make the fourth and fifth parts of the franchise as it's one big story.

'I got more excited as I went along. Movie four is a corker. It’s a motherfucker. I actually hope I get to make it. But it depends on market forces. Three is in the can so it’s coming out regardless. I really hope that we get to make four and five because it’s one big story, ultimately,' Cameron told Empire.

Set over a decade after the events of the first film, 'Avatar: The Way of Water' will see Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, and Giovanni Ribisi reprising their roles. The film will also star Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Michelle Yeoh, Jemaine Clement, and Vin Diesel.

'Avatar: The Way of Water' will release on December 16.
