Speaking to the LA Times after the films release Winslet called Cameron a really tough nut to crack adding There were times I was genuinely frightened of him. In a later interview with The Guardian she said He has a temper like you wouldnt believe. Youd have to pay me a lot of money to work with Jim again. However Winslet has once again reunited with Cameron for his new film Avatar The Way Of Water the longawaited sequel to his 2009 blockbuster which is set for release on December 16. In a new interview with GQ Cameron suggested that Winslet was willing to work with him again because she had something to prove to herself. For The Way Of Water the actress had to learn to free dive and breathe underwater for roughly eight minutes.
Discussing this in the interview Cameron said And so I mean no extra charge for the therapy for the healing moment where she got to hold her breath underwater for seven and a half minutes and be the underwater queen. Elsewhere the director recently suggested that he could end the Avatar franchise early if the upcoming sequel underperforms at the box office. Cameron is planning another three sequels after The Way Of Water with the followups set to be released in 2024 2026 and 2028 respectively. However the filmmaker has said that the story could conclude with the third film.
The market could be telling us were done in three months or we might be semidone meaning OK lets complete the story within movie three and not go on endlessly if its just not profitable the filmmaker told Total Film. Were in a different world now than we were when I wrote this stuff even he added. Its the onetwo punch – the pandemic and streaming. Or conversely maybe well remind people what going to the theatre is all about. This film definitely does that. The question is how many people give a shit now?.
