Director James Cameron, who was recently called out for never turning his projects in on time by Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch in a comprehensive Fortune interview, participated in a Reddit Ama this morning, giving his Avatar franchise a timetable.
"The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They're essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks. There's always pressure, whether it's a new film or whether it's a sequel, to entertain and amaze an audience. I've felt that pressure my entire career, so there's nothing new there. The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love »

We know that James Cameron is planning at least three Avatar sequels, and Sam Worthington, Zoe Sladana, and Stephen Lang are officially signed on to reprise their roles. But according to Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch, there could be more.

Again, we know that Cameron is planning on making three more Avatar movies and that he will shoot them back to back. If they all do »

Jennifer Aniston is certainly looking rough and rugged on the set of her new movie. On Monday, the 45 year-old actress sported a large scar on her right check as she got into character for her upcoming film "Cake." Starring alongside Anna Kendrick and Sam Worthington, the former "Friends" actress plays as a woman who joins a support group for chronic pain sufferers after she is involved in a fatal car accident. In addition to a fierce facial scar, the brunette beauty also donned darker hair, baggy clothes, and minimal makeup for the role. She isn’t the first star to undergo a major transformation for a role – Charlize Theron and Halle Berry both took home Academy Awards for their respective roles in "Monster" and "Monster’s Ball" after subjecting themselves to unglamorous movie makeunders.

Anna Kendrick was in high spirits as she got to work on the set of her new movie 'Cake'. The adorable actress was joined by her co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Sam Worthington for the shoot in Los Angeles. More movie news for Anna, she doesn't want singing roles in films so she can drink beer whenever she wants. The 28-year-old actress is soon to hit the big screen in a string of movies including 'The Last Five Years' which is based on Jason Robert Brown's musical of same name, an adaptation of 'Into the Woods' based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway performance, and the sequel to 2012's 'Pitch Perfect'. These films require her to belt out tracks and Kendrick insists she needs to be cast in productions which don't force her to think about her voice as much. Talking to the wrap.com earlier, »
Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Aniston were both all smiles while filming their new movie Cake on Monday in La, but they weren't together - and for good reason. In the film, Anna's character, Nina, comes back as a ghost after committing suiciding to haunt and taunt Jennifer's character, Claire. However, Anna didn't look very ghostly on set, mulling over choices at craft service as she walked around on her first day. Their costar Sam Worthington split his time between the two actresses, and he'll be torn between both women in the film, too - as he copes with the death of his late wife, Nina, he develops a relationship with Claire, which we saw as he and Jen filmed together in a cemetery. Jennifer transformed herself for this role with a darker 'do and a fake scar, and Anna may be able to give her a few tips after her »

The 45-year-old actress, who was spotted on location for the first day of filming last week, displayed dramatic scars across her cheek, chin, neck and hands.
She was also pictured with minimal make-up on and wearing a loose-fitting white T-shirt and pair of cargo trousers.
The star is executive producer on the project and also plays the lead role of Claire Simmons, who develops an obsession following the suicide of a woman called Nina (played by Anna Kendrick) from her chronic pain support group.
As events unfold in the drama, directed by Daniel Barnz and based on a script by Patrick Tobin, Claire is forced to face her own personal tragedy while embarking on a relationship with Nina's husband.
Aniston was also spotted on set with co-star Sam Worthington.
Jennifer Aniston's latest role is certainly of the no-frills variety. Photographed on the set of the drama Cake, Aniston was wearing no makeup (or at least the kind of makeup that makes it look like an actress is wearing no makeup) except for a huge scar across her right cheek, there for her role as a woman in a support group for people who suffer from chronic pain. Aniston's character, Claire, delves into the life of a member of her group (Anna Kendrick) who commits suicide and ends up developing a relationship with the late woman's husband, played by Sam Worthington. And the cake of the title isn't just proverbial—it's an actual offering baked by Claire for the »
It's really hard to imagine anyone other than Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine in the movies. He's been playing the character for so long! It's been 14 years since he was introduced in Bryan Singer's X-Men. The part was originally supposed to go to Russell Crowe, but he passed on it and told the studio to give it Jackman, so they did. The actor himself has said that his replacement is inevitable. As much as we love him as the character, he can't keep it up forever.
"Look, that’s inevitable, man. Anyone who thinks they're indispensable in this business is fooling themselves. But I feel unbelievably blessed to have this part. I never thought in a million years I'd get to play him seven times. Every day I walk on the set with the claws and the hair, I thank my lucky stars. I don't take any of it for granted. »

Jennifer Aniston can credit talented makeup artists for the realistic-looking scar on her right cheek and forehead. The actress was made up and dressed down to film scenes for her new film, Cake, but at least she was in good company. Jennifer joined costar Sam Worthington to get started on production in La on Thursday and Friday. One of the scenes had the duo looking distraught in a cemetery as their characters mourned together. However, it's not as simple as it appears - Jennifer's character Claire actually "becomes fascinated by the suicide of Nina (Anna Kendrick), a woman in her chronic-pain support group, as she also grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy." While Jennifer is busy filming Cake in La, her fiancé, Justin Theroux, is finishing up his new show, Leftovers, in NYC. The couple reunited last month in the Big Apple but will remain apart for the time being. »
