Sam Worthington 'Ready to Jump' Into 'Avatar' Sequel
Highly-anticipated follow-up won't likely be in theaters until 2016
Sam Worthington is making the rounds talking up "Wrath of the Titans," in theaters Friday, and he
gave ET the latest on director James Cameron's highly anticipated "Avatar" sequel.
"Jim's off on his personal mission exploring the depths of the ocean, so
hopefully a sea snake doesn't grab him, or some monster that is in the deep that
no one knows about," says Sam with a sly grin. "As ['Wrath of the Titans'
co-star Liam Neeson] said, if it does, I pity the monster,
because Jim will definitely take down that thing. And when he's back and wants
to go, I'm ready to jump."
Of course, Sam is referencing the "Avatar" director's recent record-setting
deep-sea excursion, humankind's first solo dive to the deepest point of the
earth, the Mariana Trench. The adventure was caught on film for an upcoming 3D
documentary and subsequent National Geographic Channel special, and Cameron is
also busy with the 3D release of "Titanic" on April 4, the 100th anniversary of the
ocean liner disaster
Surely not a coincidence, the ocean-loving Cameron has said the sequel to the
highest grossing film in history will dive into the oceans of Pandora and will
likely not arrive in theaters until 2016. Should we hold our breath?
