The trio of films are being made back-to-back-to-back by Cameron, who last August enlisted Josh Friedman, duo Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, and Shane Salerno to help him work on the screenplays.

The first actor who signed on for all three new movies was Stephen Lang, who played mad Marine Colonel Quaritch in the 2009 film.

His character dies in the first film, but Cameron will be resurrecting him somehow.

Other plot details are being kept under wraps on Pandora, although The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Jake Sully and Neytiri, the characters played by Worthington and Saldana, respectively, have kids.

Said Cameron: “Jake Sully is a rare combination of passion, strength, street smarts and soul, which requires a lot from an actor. Sam brought to the role a combination of sensitivity, vulnerability and strength. Zoe captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing to Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they’ll be returning with us to Pandora.”

Cameron and Jon Landau will produce through their Lightstorm Entertainment banner.

The first sequel is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2016, with the second to follow in December 2017 and the third a year later.

Genesis Rodriguez

“I was working for about six years in Spanish soap operas,” says Rodriguez. “I started working at 15, turning 16, and I moved here about two years and I came out thinking I was gonna serve people breakfast and say one line and be ‘Girl Number 2.’ But, that didn’t happen, thank God. I’m blessed that I got a start with my Spanish audience and I hope they like the transition.”

Rodriguez went on to appear in one of the country’s most popular soap operas, playing Becky Ferrer on Days of our Lives. And, she later moved on to guest-star on HBO’s popular series Entourage.  Rodriguez, who appears on the cover of the latest issue of Para Todos magazine, is now starring as an in Man on a Ledge, and will appear in Will Ferrell’s Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre.

I can’t wait for the American and international public to get to know me better and to see my work,” says Rodriguez. “This is the most exciting time of my life and I can’t wait to share it with people and continue doing what I’m doing.”

So what’s next for Rodriguez? Sharing scenes with the former governator Arnold Schwarzenegger in the film Last Stand.

“I play an FBI agent. Me with a gun, it’s the greatest thing ever,” says Rodriguez. “Arnold is such a great guy and this is going to be such an amazing [film] for him.”
