While the production of the next two Avatar sequels had to pause like every other film production in the world, the movies are now getting back underway and we're now that much closer to actually seeing some of the most anticipated movies in years. The Avatar films have put together an impressive cast of both returning and brand new actors, though one of those new actors, David Thewlis, admits that we quite nervous about going to work for James Cameron.
It seems the director's reputation is one of being a tough man to please, though David Thewlis says that this didn't turn out to be the case at all. In fact, he found James Cameron to be a wonderful man who was quite a lot of fun to work for. According to Thewlis...
David Thewlis, who is best known for playing the role of Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter films tells Collider that he was nervous about working for James Cameron, but his real difficulty came with the uniqueness of the production process of the Avatar films. He apparently felt a bit out of his element, likely due to the motion capture technology and various other cutting edge methods that James Cameron is known for using whenever he makes movies. If anything, Thewlis was intimidated by Cameron, though it sounds like they got along well.
David Thewlis clarifies that we won't see him in the next Avatar film, as his character is set to debut in Avatar 3, which was being filmed simultaneously with Avatar 2. However, the actor confirms that the plan is for him to return for Avatar 4 and 5. Those films are set to be filmed simultaneously as well, though originally the plan was for them to not begin production until after Avatar 2 and 3 were released.
